It's only 3 days till Christmas!!!
I am beyond excited. I just got back about an hour ago from buying the VERY last present I have to buy. Now I can just relax and enjoy the "season". I love everything about Christmas. I love the festivities, the shopping, even the crazy Alabama weather. It's 61 degrees right now.
And I love the "reason for the season". I know that's a phrase we throw around casually and I must confess that I haven't taken any time out to really think about the real meaning of Christmas this year. But, I'm thinking about it now.
I am in awe of that young, virgin girl who replied, "I am the Lord's servant" when the angel told her she would give birth to the Son of God. I will be anxious to talk with Mary in Heaven someday. I can't comprehend or grasp the level of emotions she must have gone through in her lifetime. What could it have possible felt like to hold the Son of God in her arms? I'm not sure why Mary is on my mind so much today....

The first thing you see when you walk in the front door is my O Little Town of Bethelehem. I got this when Jay and I first got married. They had just retired it and I found it on my Ebay. I love to look at it when the lights are out and it's lit up.
Our dining room and living room are all open. Here's a few pics from the two.

First I would like to apologize for being MIA for so long or, maybe you've enjoyed a break from a series of totally random posts. Either way, I'm back and oh so happy to be in the bloggy world again!
Last week was a world-wind of Christmas festivities. Monday night was a Christmas party for the preschool workers at church, Wednesday was Jay's work party, Friday night was our neighborhood party and yesterday morning we left for Nashville for Christmas with Jay's family. All of that was A LOT for a girl who loves a routine that rarely changes.
Nashville was great. Kay and Keith (sis & bro-in law) rode with us. I don't think I have laughed that hard in ages, nor do I think I have acted that immature in ages. And if you believe that, I need you to also know that I make up my bed every morning and cook supper every night. I wish I could remember all the things that caused me to double-over with laughter and possibly wet my pants but everything was just so random.
I guess that's what happens when someone like me provides a music selection that included Debbie Gibson, Old School Hip Hop, Ultimate Love Songs, Kenny Rogers, and Monster Ballads. I know some people might be embarrassed to whip out their Debbie Gibson CD, but I like everybody to know the real me. And with that said, I want you to know the real me went to a New Kids on the Block concert when I was in the 9th grade.
I'll post more about the Nashville trip later. I've gotta get busy reading all your posts! But because I love you, I'll leave you with this.

But, I shall look for the positive.
I'm sitting in the living room, glancing over every so often at my Christmas tree (I think I just saw one of the lights winking at me!)
It's raining - hard - and the wind is blowing - even harder. It's going to be COLD tomorrow! I can't believe I'm excited about that, but for some reason I am.
It's 24 days till Christmas!!!
And, I'll leave you with these two precious pictures from Thanksgiving:
