This December

It's December. We've had a few snow flurries. The kids and I have pulled out most of the Christmas decorations and hung them around the house. I need a few more strands of lights.
There is a nasty cold threatening to make it's way around the family. My sweet boy has it and his sister looks to be on the verge. And I feel like I am on the verge. I tell the older girls that they need to get enough sleep so that they can hopefully avoid the chesty cough and running nose. But they haven't really been listening.

I love Christmas. It is my favorite holiday. In past years I have spent the end of November preparing my Christmas blog posts and getting ready to change the colors of the text to be various shades of red and green. This year it just got past me. I love to share my joy of the season, but this year I am going quiet for the month of the December. I may pop in with an occasional story, but for now I am going to wish you a fabulous holiday season with all the good cheer, candy canes, wassail and snow that you can handle.

Merry Christmas. And may God bless us, every one!


  1. I feel the same way about our Christmas decorations this year. Our house is sans Christmas lights, but for all the front yard inflated Santa & manger scene bling our neighbors have, we're going to call it good.

    Hope the cold/flu bug passes quickly!! And Merry Christmas!

  2. Merry Christmas to you! Hope there's some peace and good family memories-in-the-making to boot.

  3. December truly is a magical month. Love the picture you used on this post!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Where's the picture from? It's beautiful.

  5. Just make sure and come back in January. I took "a short break" back in August and that turned into a LONG BREAK. And well, yea. Life does that I guess.

    A belated Happy Holidays to you.
