Well it hit me finally. I got the Christmas bug again. I have been listening to Christmas music on the radio since Nov 1. Yea I know. But I love Christmas and Christmas Music. And this week has proved once again life is to short not to enjoy each and everyday to its fullest even if it isn't so perfect. God has a plan for each of us and I read a cute verse this week that I will be using more than once. It said " WANT TO MAKE GOD LAUGH? TELL HIM YOUR PLANS!!". That is so true. But I want to be like the next one "I want to be the woman that when she gets up in the morning the devil says O' Crap She's Up!". So I have been sitting a my desk for over a week now trying to come up with my Christmas design this year. I would make one and it wouldn't look right so I would try again only to get angry and leave the room. Well I was determined yesterday to make my design. Well I did I made 3 actually. So I went from nothing to 3. But I am very pleased with them and will be making many more to get in the mail this week.
SO here they are... And if you are on my Christmas Card list you never know which one you may get.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

God Bless,

Wow how time flies. It is already the 8th day of December. Thanksgiving came and went. You cook all day to have the meal gone in 30 minutes. Now we move into Christmas. I have been enjoying the Christmas music on the radio since before Thanksgiving. Of course Brittany tells me if I hear one more jingle bells mom! Yeah Yeah Yeah.
I have been slow at Christmas cards this year. Not sure why. I am excited to get them done but can't get them right. I made one tonight as a tester and kind of like it but just not sure yet. Today has been a day... My daughter attends a private christian school where there are 350 kids from pre k to 12th grade. So needless to say we are all pretty close. And with me subbing there I tend to meet mom's in the lower grades as well. Today I had some heart breaking news. one of the 2nd grade little girls lost her father Sunday morning to a massive heart attack. He leaves behind a 2nd grader a 9th grader and a wonderful wife. Of course unexpected. Then later on in the day as I waited for the email on what we were needing to do to help out I received word that one of the 6th grade girls lost her father to cancer Saturday morning. Her birthday was Friday and from what I understand he went home from the hospital to be with her.
I know God has a plan for everyone and we have to praise him even in time of sorrow. I am praying these two families find strength in the Lord during this sorrowful time.

Back to my card.
