Happy Christmas Eve!!

It’s almost here. My goodness gracious. Christmas 2011 is right around the corner. I’m loving every second of it.

We have had the best week, full of simple and sweet things. My Jaxy, myself and my sweet parents went to the movies yesterday. It was Jaxon’s first ever trip to the movies. He did so awesome!

Can you guess which movie we went to see? “We Bought a Zoo.” And we loved it. Jaxon loved the animals and kept yelling out the types of animals as they flashed across the screen. He knows what lemurs are and when they mentioned them he kept asking ((out loud)) where they were? Ha ha. Super sweet movie.


My agenda for today is to:

1--drink coffee with my mug-snuggie my Mom made for me. Don’t you love it? It takes coffee-drinking in the morning to a whole new level of warm-comfort-love. Aaaaaah. In love with it.


2--Make reindeer food for Jaxon to put out tonight. He’s going to be ecstatic!

3--make cookies to set out for Santa tonight. I bought pre-made sugar cookies with colored tubes of icing for Jax to decorate with. FUN!

4--wrap Jaxon’s gifts. I keep forgetting to wrap them! Oh gosh! Someone remind me that TODAY is my LAST day!

5--finish Jaxon’s Grandparent gifts. ((My Mom subscribes to my blog so I can’t reveal what they are just yet. But his Grandparent’s will LOVE them))

--RELAX and revel in the beauty of the day. I can’t wait to see Jaxon’s excitement in the morning. We have had a truly blessed Christmas season. We kept things so simple, yet we had such a great month. Blessings abound in every aspect of my life.

I won’t be blogging for a few days to celebrate Christmas and to take a virtual break. I know you too will be hugging your loved ones, eating yummy food and reveling in your own blessings.


May you be blessed this Christmas. May you feel God’s love in all that you do.

Much love and blessings-
