Merry CHRISTmas!

I always love going to church but I REALLY love going to church in December.  I think it's way too easy to forget what Christmas is all about but being in church singing Christmas songs today was amazing.  I got chills every time we sang a Christmas song.  I play Christmas music all month long but there's something about sitting in church and reading the words of the songs as you sing them.

Last Sunday, we were sitting in church and McKenna was doodling and she wrote X-mas.  I leaned over and told her that she shouldn't take the Christ out of Christmas.  She kind of gave me a weird look and continued on with her doodles.  A few minutes later she tapped my arm and showed me her paper...
Merry CHRISTmas
was written on her paper.  What a little punk, I guess she showed me :)
I think Linus sums up the meaning of Christmas best...
So now that we all know what the true meaning of Christmas is I want to let everyone know that I will be doing the 12 Days of Christmas...On the 1st day of Christmas Lil' Mama gave to meeee!  Oh wait, you will have to wait a couple of days but make sure you are checking back often because I have some pretty awesome giveaways!

What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
We always go up to Logan on Christmas Eve to play Bingo with Jake's family.  We win really awesome (or not) prizes!  We always spend Christmas day with my family and eat a grand feast :)  I also make sugar cookies with my kids on Christmas Eve Eve and they are the most delicious cookies EVER!  We have a few other traditions but I will save those for another day.

What is your very favorite Christmas movie?
I have so many favorites but one that I haven't seen for far too long is The Muppet's Christmas Carol.  Everyone thinks I'm crazy but I really do love that movie :)


  1. I really like White Christmas. I especially like watching it with my dad. We're known to bust into song right along with the movie. My kiddos are learning to join us. :)

    My favorite Christmas movie is "Elf", best movie ever! I need to see this Muppet Christmas movie :)

  3. Muppets? I really thought that your favorite would have been Elf!
