See you in Fall 2011!

It is always a little sad to close down my Christmas Blog for the year - I love Christmas and love it when it is Christmas Time.  I still have up our decorations - probably will leave them up during January.  We have long dark nights and the lights are so cheery and help to sooth the winter darkness. I wanted to share two things with you as I wish you a wonderful 2011.

I had a bunch of stockings left over from when the kids were little, from service projects, from gifts, and the stocking from when I was little.  I had exactly 24 of of them.  I made numbers and made a clothesline on our stairs to the basement and turned them into an countdown putting up one each day from Dec. 1-14.  I love them!

We have a little forgotten corner in our basement landing.  It is the end of a little hall that leads to a bathroom and the storage area's.  But it is a cute little corner.  I had a couple of Christmas things left and my goal this year was to use everything and what didn't get used was given to someone who could use it.   I had our five year old grandson with me when I went downstairs to get something.  He looked at the corner and said, "Oh Grandma Mimmi Sugar Ball Miss ( I don't know why he callse me all these names but I love it!) Everyplace is so Christmasy Cute!" All of the work and hassel of decorating our house for Christmas is  worth it.  He knows I love Christmas - he knows I love the reason for Christmas is the birth of a precious baby in a manger in Bethlehem that changed my life when I accepted Him as my Savior, he knows and he is five and it is all worth it.   Here is the corner.

Thanks for keeping me company this Christmas Season!
