Time Flies

I am always amazed how fast time goes by!

Before I knew it we were on a plane heading to Hawaii after months of planning and saving.  Then we were home (9 days later that went in the blink of an eye).  Then it was Thanksgiving.  So crazy!

Hawaii was beautiful!  We didn't do all we wanted but we did what we needed to, rest and relax and enjoy us time.  It was wonderful!

Now I am preparing for Christmas!  I can't believe it!  I actually started making Christmas crafts tonight for gifts. I am so excited for Christmas.  I am going to make many of the gifts for the people that are important in my life.  It is right in line with the Advent Conspiracy project we do at church but it also touches a deeper part of me.  My mom would stay up late at night for weeks leading up to Christmas working on our gifts.  She made wonderful gifts.  She was very talented with a sewing machine.  I wish she would have been around longer so I could have learned more from her.  Her life was way too short.

There are so many people who have touched my life and I want to be able to bless them with a piece of myself.  I know, that probably sounds pretty cheesy but that's me.

So, just wanted to pop in here and say I'm still alive and well and am looking forward to all this months activities and fun times!

What are you doing for Christmas this year?  Do you buy gifts or make them?  Which do you prefer to receive?  Do you like a combination of both store bought and handmade?

Those are the thoughts and questions running thru my head at the moment.

Hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and had much to be thankful for!

  1. I like to make presents, but I think the presents I want this year are mostly store bought ones. Look forward to hearing what you made.
