Happy 2009

I hope you have a blessed 2009. I am looking forward to all that lies ahead for my family and I this year.

I'm excited about going with my hubbie on a long-awaited mini vaca to NC in a couple of days. Just the two of us. First time we have left the boys since, well...ever. I will miss them terribly, but it will be good to get away and have some time - just us.

After we get back, I will be getting ready for my Valentine's Day rush. I absolutely LOVE Valentine's Day and filling orders for that special time.

HAPPY NEW YEAR and be safe out there.

Merry CHRISTmas!

If you have kiddos at home, you hafta check this out. I bought mine a few years ago at Walmart and I tell ya, our boys LOVE it! It's called WHAT GOD WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS by Family Life Publishing. It's a nativity that folds open and stands. Each day, the week of Christmas, your child can open up a box and inside there is a character. In box number 7, there's a surprise (I won't tell you what it is), but it's what God wants for Christmas. There is a book you read to your child, a short description of each character, each day. It's very sweet. My oldest son who is now 6, called it the "activity" for years because he couldn't remember "nativity". I guess there was alot of activity in that stable.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and may your 2009 be very blessed!

So far, I feel a little ahead of the game. Most of my Christmas shopping is done and those gifts are already wrapped. The house is decorated and the stockings are hung. We took our Christmas card pics this past weekend....

In the hustle and bustle of this time of year, remember the real reason we are celebrating. God sent His one and only Son as THE PERFECT GIFT. Probably not the first thing you had on your list or something you even realized you needed, but once you receive Jesus, you know. God has hooked you up!!!

I'm feeling under the weather today, but I'm having fun finishing up orders. Here's a little of what I've been working on. I had a large order ship yesterday and now that it's gone, I can take a breath. Ok, that's enough.

Heading out now to get a haircut for my 4 year old basketball star. My Dad calls him Prince Caspian, so I think it's time to trim the tree.

Have a happy day!
