MERRY CHRISTMAS YA’LL! I can’t believe that it’s only three days until Christmas! Here’s a few blessings from this past week that I’d love to share with you.
1) Christmas with a friend
One of my close friends came over to the house on Monday and we had a little Christmas celebration! We exchanged gifts, drank coffee and cocoa, watched Christmas movies, played games and colored pictures. It was nice to take some time out of our busy schedules to catch up and visit.
2) Christmas baking
One of my favorite things to do this time of the year is to bake Christmas cookies. I love eating them fresh out of the oven. We’re finally doing some of our baking this week, that way the cookies stay fresh for Christmas! 🙂 What are some of your favorite Christmas cookie recipes? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below!
3) Christmas at Home
This is the first year in a very long time that I will be able to be home for Christmas. Usually on Christmas we wake up early, open our gifts and then drive to northern Ohio to see family. If we’re not driving to see family we have some other out-of-town relatives spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with us. I LOVE spending time with my family and getting to see everyone, but I’m really excited to spend Christmas at home with just the 5 of us. We’re getting older now and it may not be this way much longer. Next year Bradley could be working, Jojo volunteering, etc. So, I plan on enjoying every bit of the time that I can. We’ve already declared Christmas Day a pajama day around here!
What are some of the daily blessings that you’ve noticed in your life this past week? I’d love for you to share them in the comments below.
I hope that ya’ll have a wonderful Christmas!
Until next time,
