It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

A few years back I was a scrooge. I did not want to decorate, have a tree, help mom with her house, go to family gatherings, cook, bake goodies, buy gifts, give gifts, of course we always WANT gifts. :) haha. None the less, it was a bad year. It was miserable. Since being married for a few years, we have noticed that the holidays are so very busy with house hopping and sharing time with families. Now that we are home owners we are finding that the holidays are even better because we have kitchen space, a fireplace and plenty of room for people and pretty decor. Well, I have found that anyway. I enjoy it. I think that I have a nack (that how you spell that??) for having company over, being a hostess. I am finding that I love planning and decorating and having people in my home. Anyway, all of that to say, that this Christmas, so far, has been quite wonderful! It can only get better with all that is ahead!

I've had a small setback yesterday and today. Apparently my body decided to make me halt and rest. I had a temperature of 100.4 last night (which if you know me is like 103 for most people). It was miserable and with a good dose of advil and sleep I seem to be on the mend today. BUT, I feel like I am now behind and off schedule for the month. If you took a look at my day calendar, you'd see that there are barely any clear days. I like it that way, but my body does not sometimes. So, a fever got my attention.

Speaking of being a hostess; I just hosted a recipe shower for a dear friend of mine, last sunday. It was one of the most wonderful times I've had since my wedding showers. A room full of Godly women sharing advice, stories and the hearts with each other about marriage and life. Tears, laughter, really yummy snacks and cozy fellowship made for a completely love afternoon! I was so pleased and blessed to have such a compilation of amazing women in my home, at one time! What a blessing!

I will post some pictures of our house soon. I suppose I should pick things up a bit and then take pictures! :)

I could have made about 5 different posts out of this one post, but I have the time to sit and write this afternoon and I haven't had the time in quite awhile. My best friend is home. aaaahhhh. Although she is home, we've seen each other once. hahaha. talked quite a bit, but have not hung out. I'm so ready for sunday night! That will fix it. :)

Suppose that is all for now..who knows, I might be back later today....never know what I might think of to write.
