Do you hear what I hear?

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

Yummy Christmas cookies are some of the best things in the world-- teehee. Not so good for my wedding diet, but YUMMM. Our sweet neighbors brought over some cookies-- peanut butter cookies with hershey kisses and sprinkles.


Josh had a couple and then I had 3! haha. Sooo good.
(I need to make some!!)

We got a light dusting of snow this morning and it was just gorgeous! The snow actually glitters! It's the Christmas glow :)

Christmas came quick this year... perhaps it's just a sign of getting old(er) or maybe I just need to slow down some. I know sometimes I get so caught up with all the responsibilities of being an adult... or at least playing the role. As a little kid, I looked forward to Christmas every year whether we had presents under the tree or not, but as I get older, it kinda just creeps up on me and it's hard to not get caught up with getting the ultimate gift for someone or even for yourself or just worrying about the year coming to a close, the economy, and all the other things that we "don't have."

I pray that in the midst of everything going on this year-- economy-wise or any other change that has currently bogged you down, that God's grace and love rains and pours all over you.

It is with great love and the warmest wishes, Merry Christmas, you!

Take the time to breathe and just enjoy!


  1. I felt really good after reading your post dear :D The cookies look really scrumptuous!

    As for Christmas coming by so quickly, yes I guess as we grow older, some of that concentrated Christmas magic and replaced it with a bit more of Christmas "consciousness" to the realities around us. Nevertheless, Christmas is still Christmas - the day when our Saviour was born. Merry Christmas dear and have a great time!
