It's starting to look...

...a little bit like Christmas! I am not ready to really decorate yet, but Isabelle has been asking for the musical snow globe that Santa brought for her a few years back, so I found it and I will slowly be putting things out each day. I really like to wait until we get our tree, but for now a few items here and there will be fun! What memories, opening a Christmas Box does bring!

Cardinals - My beautiful magical winter birds. I seriously cannot get enough of these bright red beauties in the snow! They come in the summer, but it is nothing compared to their winter visits. Every time I see one I get the kids are excited too...except they go running to the window and pound on it to say "hi" to the birds and the birds...leave. hehe - who can blame them! I would be cautious too.

Isabelle brought this cute Santa home from School. She is so excited to glue a cotton ball on each morning. We put the cotton balls up high so "Benny doesn't get them".

I decided to get out our holiday collection of movies! My absolute favorites of course: The Christmas Story and will ferrell's ELF. My other favorites: it's a wonderful life and chevy chases' Christmas vacation...I will need to add these two to my collection some day! I love Christmas movies! Last night the classic from when I was a kid- clay animated "Santa Claus is coming to Town" was on t.v., I let the kids stay up and watch it.
I am having a hard time deciding what to do for CHRISTMAS CARDS this year. My heart wants to make them because I so enjoy it so much, but my head tells me that things are too busy crazy right now and I will regret it. My brain tells me to get Walgreen's photo cards. So I am having this debate with myself.
I am on a major search for the fisher price little people Navtivity Set. I hope to find it locally and for a good price!

I am excited to be signed on for helping with Isabelle's Christmas Class party. I have to start thinking of some fun ideas for the kids. She will also have a sing-a-long on that day. Tomorrow marks my last day of Bible Study. This has been such a wonderful thing for me, such an amazing group of women. I hope with all my heart that I can take part in the next session! Tomorrow also is an informational/registration meeting for Girl Scout Daisies for Isabelle. Last night I tried a new recipe: Spinach Ravioli Bake. It was good. I have some bananas going bad, I should make some bread. Twilight: The Book - I wasn't going to read this book because of all the hype and that I thought nothing can compare to Anne Rice when it comes to vampires...but my step sister in law (Ellen aka Gumby) convinced me to give it a try...and I must say I stayed up for 2 hours straight last night reading it so far. hehe o.k., I guess I should go rouse the troops. Although I see no Sun, morning is here. May your day be blessed and beautiful.
