I can’t believe December is here! It seriously snuck up on me and my goodness–this is the last month in 2013! I’m looking forward to so many things in the upcoming weeks–Holiday cheer, concerts, The Chipmunks Christmas Carols (Yes, I still love them), peppermint mocha coffee, peppermint bark, and baking my favorite sweet eats like peppermint bark fudge, found here. I’m sure you see a trend here. The older I get, the more I appreciate this time of year. I get to spend time with family, go on a random Starbuck’s run for a Gingerbread Latte, or just relax in my Snuggie by the fireplace.
I found this cute, little mug at the Dollar Tree to go with my Mocha Mint Cappuccino. Cheers to the Holiday Season!
Looking for some great Christmas music? Check out Highlands Worship A Highlands Christmas-My King Is Here CD! You can find it here.
Let the countdown to Christmas begin! Do you have any plans for the holiday season?
Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! I’m so thankful for family and friends. This time of year is especially hard for those who have lost loved ones (including myself). May the peace of God be a comfort to everyone. My prayers are with those affected in Sandy Hook and their families, Mr. Han’s family, and many more.
Regardless of the reason…THIS season brings people together! There’s nothing like family time, amazing friends, giving, and just being thankful.
Enjoy and be blessed…for Jesus is the reason for the season!
Merry Christmas to all!!!
Lovely collage created by my awesome nephews, Preston and Winston!
I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! You’ve probably noticed I haven’t posted in a minute…I’ve been sick and shut in. I’m feeling much better now…thank God! I was quarantined last night*side eye* lol but I guess it helped!
I enjoyed the holiday with my family and ate pretty good, but I almost feel like I need to redo Thanksgiving dinner, because I couldn’t indulge like my normal self. Everyone else did eat good!
I made a few sweet potato pies! This is the before pic. Sorry there’s no after they got demolished! lol I also made a Butter Pecan cake…Mmmm mmmm!
Oh and my Dressing was OTDC! Yes it was that good! Of course this wasn’t all…we had the works! And my Mom’s Macaroni and cheese was heavenly!
Went by Earth Fare to look for E-Boost, but they only had Emergen-C! Gave em’ a try, didn’t really see a difference probably, because my cold got too for along.
I cheered for the Alabama Crimson Tide (from the couch)! It was still good times all around.
I’m super excited about the Christmas holiday season I can’t wait to see what Santa brings!
I’m really missing my Dad so much right now! He loved Spring/Summer holidays–especially since he could show off his grilling skills. Lol As I listen to Barry White, it reminds me of my Dad grooving to his favorite songs, drankin’ a Budweiser or Sterling beer or even a Crown & 7up, preparing THE BEST baked beans, ribs, and burgers on this side! So I guess I’ll let the music play! I love you Daddy! <3 <3 <3
