Our stocking are hung
by the chimney on the curtain rods with care with hopes that St. Nicholas soon will be here.
Our Christmas tree is up and decorated. We've got a great start on our Christmas shopping. The Christmas cards have been put in the mail. Our wreath has been hung. We've been burning the holiday-scented candles. We've attended a Christmas party. Today I'm making a pumpkin pie.
Not sure if that last one really counts as getting into the Christmas spirit, but we have a pumpkin from our CSA that needs to be transformed into a pie.
This Christmas won't be going as I thought it would go. But we'll make the best of what we have. We share our love and time with family and friends. We'll miss those who can't be with us this year. We'll celebrate the birth of baby Jesus and we'll pray that next Christmas will bring us a new joy to our lives.
Doesn't Otis look really annoyed at me for trying to get his picture by the tree?
My Christmas pups. Some of the best of what we have.
I hope everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit!
