I'm having an idea....

about what to do for our Christmas card this year!
If you know me, which I assume you do if you're reading this...or if you don't's a glimpse into one of my *issues* -- I can't send out a "normal" Christmas card! Ever!

It has to be different. Creative. Not previously done.

And I finally came upon some inspiration! Can't wait to get them in the mail!!!

I love this time of year. The wonder is never lost on me. The miracle of Jesus coming to earth as a babe. Not in a palace made of gold and fine stone. Not in a comfortable, warm room with graham crackers and apple juice for Mary. Not anything like that. He came in a cold, smelly, drafty barn. His first visitors were shepards - people who were at the bottom of the list in society those days. It was all designed just that way. Just a little glimpse into what he was willing to do for me. That's always the biggest thing for me...but I also love the tradition of it. It's so much more fun to be a mom during the Christmas holiday than when I was a kid. And I have GREAT Christmas memories! Going to break out the Christmas Cd's now. Oh - it's beginning!! I LOVE this time of year!
