Christmas Cheer

I have been waiting for the day after Thanksgiving to get excited about Christmas.  Don't take me wrong, I'm very blessed and thankful.  This year we spent Thanksgiving with family.  My kids and I are in south Texas with my mother and aunt.  We are having a good time with my sisters, who are my inspiration and best friends.  They open their homes to us and I know I always have someone count on.  They are beautiful women of faith.  I admire them and hope one day I can give them back as much as they have given me.

My kids and I will head back home to cooler weather.  There is a lot of Christmas shopping to get done.  When I get home we need to put up our Christmas decorations.  Here are some of my favorite Christmas things from my dream shop, Crows Nest Trading.
