In the Christmas Spirit!

7 12 2009

Hello all! Hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend!

In my house, this weekend was deemed Christmas Decorating Weekend. My house is now filled with Santa’s, Stars, Baby Jesus’,  a tree, super CUTE Christmas dishes, a nativity, and numerous and abounding other Christmas Decorations! I thought I’d show you some of my favorite decorations! (In no particular order)

The mantle, one of the most important features!! We are actually missing a stocking here…for the doggy, of course 😉

100_8792He is the reason for the Season!  

100_8793 We’ve had this for as long as I can remember!





100_8814Please excuse the poor quality of the above photo—not the best lighting! 100_8816    100_8819 100_8820 100_8821 But with Christmas decorations come Christmas plates! Hence these delicious meals served on adorable plates!

A Chicken and Mushroom dish with a side of a sweet potato seasoned with seasoning salt, garlic powder, and cinnamon

With pretzels+hummus, a string cheese, and apple slices! Delightful! 100_8823 100_8825 100_8826 100_8827

100_8829 To clarify something, no I do not get my permit then my license in five days—I wish! I get my permit then my license one year later! 🙂

With all this Christmas hubbub going on, it’s VERY easy to lose sight of the REAL meaning of Christmas—the birth of Jesus, my Lord and Savior. With all the gift buying, money spending, and baking it’s not hard to lose focus. So it’s good to remember why Christmas is celebrated in the first place 🙂

I am SO not in the school—mood. I am in a Christmas mood! I am not slacking off of school, but I’m definitely not very focused. 9.5 days until I’m FREE for TWO weekssss! Yesss!

Off to study a little biology then hit the hay!

I really hope you all like the new theme I picked out especially for the Christmas/Winter Season! If you are curious how to add snow flurries to your wordpress blog, simply visit appearance—extras!

(I plan on doing Christmas verses from now—>Christmas!)

Verse of the Day: Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! (Yes, you can even make it through the hectic holiday season!)

P.S My physical therapy post/exercise post will come soon! It might not happen till this weekend, as it will take more thought than my normal posting! Thanks for understanding!

I obviously do not know the difference between license and permit, but I’m happy for you nonetheless 😛

I”m adding Christmas Pillows to my Christmas-must-have-list (I actually have a list, yes)

I just figured out that my vacation starts in 10 days too! I have my senior prom on thursday (next week) and that’s the last day of “school” before the vacation!

Christmas time, christmas time 😀

Wow, a year is REALLY a long time! Will you get your license on your 16th birthday??? I got my permit 6 months before I turned 16 and got my license the day OF my birthday.

Thank you for recognizing the true meaning of the season. There are many who fret because they cannot shop or watch TV specials, when that stuff is all trivial. Take care.

You’re getting me into the Christmas spirit, Jess! And yeah…alot of times, we get sidetracked on the TRUE meaning of Christmas…the grace of God, manifested to us through the birth of Christ! 😀

Hey hun! Thanks for your kind message on my blog 🙂 I’m a real Scrooge compared to the Christams spirit you are showing girl! We generally don’t even put a tree up until Christmas Eve in our house. Kina bad…
