I wanted to wish all my readers a Very Merry Christmas. I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow and that you always feel and remember the True Meaning of Christmas. :) Jesus was born 2000 years ago in a stable as a humble little baby, even though he's the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He did that so he could die for you (and me and everyone in the entire world) and save you from your sins, so you can spend Eternity with Him in Heaven one day. All you have to do is accept his free gift of salvation and turn your life over to him, asking for Him to help you turn from sin and live a new life. Pretty awesome Christmas gift, huh? :)
Today we've been getting stuff ready for Christmas. I cannot believe Christmas is tomorrow. Every year it comes and goes sooo quick. This year, I've been trying to focus on enjoying the moments and not lamenting how fast Christmas goes!
Some of my favorite moments this month have been:
Having a long-awaited sleepover with dear friends
Making Christmas gifts
Laughing over funny stories with friends who came over for the evening
Roasting s'mores under the stars
Decorating Christmas cookies with my brother
Hosting a blog party with Anna
Vacationing at St. Augustine with my family-we haven't been on a vacation in 3 and 1/2 years! :)
Looking at gorgeous Christmas lights and snapping way too many photos
Singing and playing Christmas songs
And there's many more, of course! :)
Here's the cookies my brother and I were decorating today. Fun and tasty.
Yes, I realize we made quite a mess in the process. ;)
And here was the sky this morning. No, not exactly a white Christmas -sob-, but beautiful just the same. Thankfully it's a little cooler out today. It's been so warm out at times this month I've been able to go into our (unheated) pool! Hopefully it will be nice out tomorrow too! I love chilly Christmases. :)
