" Honey, I'm always ready for Christmas because ever since I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior every day is Christmas to me! I was given the gift of salvation and that is Christmas. Then she said, "How about YOU? Are you ready for Christmas?
Well I was trying to pay for my items and listen to the conversation all at the same time...(you know how we women can be?) GOOD THING I can multitask like that! I didn't know either of those ladies but I can tell you that we had a little church that day in Walgreen's. I couldn't help myself and I had to chime in on the conversation. Don't you just love it when things like that happen?
Speaking of Christmas....I am just loving sitting in my living room at night when all is quiet and looking at the lights burning from my Christmas tree and mantle piece and all my little Santa's shining bright. Just something about the pretty lights that draws me to quietness.
So last week I ask you a few questions about Christmas and I appreciated all of your answers. I always enjoy hearing how others celebrate the wonderful holiday season.
Let's have fun with a few questions today.
1: What is one of your most favorite childhood memories of Christmas?
2: Do you decorate your Christmas tree with homemade ornaments, a particular kind of ornament you have collected over the years, color theme or a particular theme?
3: Last question for this week: Do you bake goodies and give for gifts during the holiday season?
I have several favorite memories but my most favorite ones has been when I had the opportunity to stay at my grandparents home and be there on Christmas morning. My Papa would wake me up around 3 am to tell me that he was pretty sure he heard Santa and the reindeer leaving off the roof of the house. I would be so excited and jump right up to run into the living room to see what Santa had brought me. A few hours would pass and I would fall asleep in my Papa's lap only to awaken to the smell of bacon cooking. Granny would fix us a big Christmas breakfast.
With decorating the Christmas tree...for years we decorated of course with all of our homemade ornaments and ornaments that the girls would make and I loved it! But as they became adult women, married and on their own our tree became "My Tree". I decorate it with ornaments that I love and usually with a color theme that stems from red, gold, clear and some added greens. I also love to use flowers on my tree. This year I did add a few new ornaments to my tree and bought a new topper. Actually it's a door swag but I wanted it to go on top of my tree and I love it! I usually do three trees. But this year I let my youngest daughter use my Country Christmas ornaments and I decided to not put up my little tree.
And....I guess you can tell that I LOVE SANTA'S!
I do hope that you all are having a great week.
I have a question for you though?
ARE YOU READY FOR CHRISTMAS?
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
