Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day celebrating with friends and family!

Merry-Christmas

Christmas is a wonderful time of year but many of us remember loved ones and experience a mix of emotions because we are missing them.

Christmas in Heaven is a song dedicated to all of us that have lost a loved one. May we find peace and comfort during this time of the year.

 

From Our Family to Yours…..

Seeing Christmas Through The Eyes of a Child

There’s something about seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child. They make Christmas magical!

This year I’m seeing Christmas through Colt’s eyes. He loves the Christmas lights and when we drive by a house with lights, he says, “Merry Chrithmas” (that’s how he pronounces it. :-) )

Seeing Christmas Through The Eyes of a Child

I also love to hear children sing at Christmas. They’re voices are sweet and innocent.

Here’s one of my favorite Christmas songs sung by children from the Brooklyn Tabernacle in New York City.

 

Merry Christmas and have a blessed Sunday!

Keeping Christmas Simple

keeping-christmas-simple

Merry Christmas friends! I hope you have all your presents bought and wrapped, your goodies baked, and your house decorated. If I did, it would be a Christmas miracle! But this year, I’m Keeping Christmas Simple.

Last night my husband and I did some Christmas shopping. We had fun, but to be honest I saw a lot of people who didn’t look like they were having fun.

(Of course, I had to take a picture of us shopping!)

Keeping Christmas Simple

It seems the more secular Christmas becomes the more miserable it becomes. Have you noticed that?

The older I get, the more simple I want our Christmas.

  • I want to celebrate Christ’s birth.
  • I want to enjoy our family and friends.
  • And I want to slow down.

Anybody want to join me? Let’s enjoy this season!

 

Have a blessed day!

Our Christmas Pajamas Tradition

Well, it’s December 9th and I’ve decided I need to get some Christmas shopping done! I’m not sure what I’m waiting for??

One of the traditions my Mom started was to let us open one present on Christmas Eve. It was always our Christmas pajamas. We loved getting those pajamas!

I’ve continued the tradition and I usually get myself a pair of pajamas too. I’ve been looking for some pajamas online.

Last year I ordered mine and Courtney’s from Victoria Secrets and we loved them. Victoria Secrets pajamas have 3 different lengths to choose from which I like. I don’t want my pants to be too short!

Here are some of the pajamas I found:

The Dreamer Flannel Pajama

The After Hours Satin Pajama

The Fireside Long Jane Pajama (Courtney likes this style of pajamas.)

With Christmas just a few weeks away, I think I better get some ordered!

Do you get Christmas pajamas in your family? Any other traditions you do, I’d love to hear!

Beauty For the Heart~~Dearest God, please never let me crowd my life full to the brim. So like the keeper of Bethlehem’s inn, I find I have no room for Him. Instead, let my heart’s door be ever open, ready to welcome the newborn King. Let me offer the best I have, to Him who gives me everything. -Rosalyn Hart Finch

Have a blessed day!
