Hi everyone! You all ready for Christmas? Only 4 more sleeps, people! I am soooo not ready. I haven't baked a thing. I have a couple more things to get and I have to grocery shop. I've only wrapped a few gifts so far. It's just come so fast. I think the weather has me kind of in a funk of not realizing the time is upon us as it's been so nice. Oh well, there is 4 more days right? And it will be what it will be and I'm trying to relax with that. So this is the perfect time to take a pause and remember the blessings of the week and share 5 of them with you.
~my daughter's birthday gift for me~ T is an esthetician for a local salon and she gave me a lovely manicure with gel polish for my birthday. Now my birthday is not till the end of the month but I wanted my nails nice for Christmas. My nails break so easy and so they never look nice and never get long but she did such a lovely job. I just love them.
~ fun christmas crafts with the kids~ I do love December in dayhome because we get to do lots of fun crafts for Christmas. We've been doing one or two and week and having lots of creative time.
~dance parties with the kids~ On netflix they have the Wiggles "Go Santa Go" and the kids just love it. They dance away and try to do the actions and sing along. Though I swear I fall asleep and wake up every morning with one or another of the songs off of there running through my head.
~morning off~ though I love going to church on Sunday mornings this last Sunday I just needed a break. I woke up feeling tired and off so just decided to listen to what my body was trying to tell me. The last thing I want is to be sick for Christmas and with the dayhome kids showing up with sniffles and coughs I didn't need to be worn down. It really was what I needed. I slept in, sat around reading and relaxing. Then just putzed around the house. In the afternoon we visited my dad and then my mom and the day was done.
~surprise lunch~ Hubby surprised me and came home with a yummy bento box of goodies for lunch. It was a nice surprise on a work day and I love that he blesses me with this kind of thing once in awhile.
Well those are my fave blessings this last week. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. As you celebrate with family and friends may you remember how very much God loves you and His very precious gift to you in the birth of Jesus. May you have many blessings of love, joy and peace surrounding your holidays.
oops sorry here is the linky.
