The Miracle of Christmas

The Season is upon us!
Like everyone else I am in a whirlwind of activity.
Decorating
Baking
Knitting
Crocheting
{and praying it ALL gets done on time while I fortify myself with plenty of hot tea!}
I have several half finished projects lying about that are not quite ready for a photo shoot as of yet!
But when the hooks & needles are finally out of them and all their nice little ends are neatly tucked in they will be happy to strut their stuff for all of you.
It has been a busy week with other things around here.
My daughter, son~ in~ law, and granddaughter moved into the house 2 doors over on
 Saturday, December 1st.
I consider this the first of my Christmas Miracles for this year! :)))
We have been trying to help her settle in a bit.
Other than that, I have finally decorated the house.
I ususally do this closer to Thanksgiving, but........
some years are just fuller than others.
The Tree just went up yesterday.
Here it is in all its
FROSTY
glory.
{I thought if I used the word "frosty" instead of  "blurry" it might seem more magical}
We are still awaiting our first snow of the Season.
Hubby is never quite as thrilled as I am.
But I AM always holding my breath in hopes of a
WHITE CHRISTMAS
Of course I do hate all the shoveling he has to do while I stay snuggled inside with a hot cup of cinnamon tea.
Even my weenie dogs love the Christmas Tree.
They lay underneath it until the packages begin to crowd them out.
So here's hoping you are all having the
Merriest
of
Days
as you prepare your Households, Families and Hearts for the wild, wonderful, miraculous frenzy of it all.
And that in the midst of everything you find
quiet
moments
of
love
joy
hope
&
restoration
as we all celebrate
The Birth of Our Savior
The Miracle of Christmas

      I pray You and your lovely family are happy and healthy this Christmas Season. Especially after weathering all those fires and that dreadful smoke you had in your area this year.
