Christmas Is In The Air!

Christmas is in the air in our home and neighborhood! Just being together with our family for Thanksgiving and helping trim daughter #2's Christmas tree last night, sure bought out the holiday spirit within me. I am now in full swing for Christmas! Today I hear ladders clinking, staples snapping as we and our neighbors put up our house Christmas lights. Soon I will share with you some Christmas home decorating pictures.
Take a deep breath and enjoy the sweetness in the air! For starters, here are a few ideas to help make this Christmas extra special!
*Don't forget whose birthday we are celebrating!
*Be the first to wish everyone you meet a Merry Christmas!
*On a clear night, find the bright North Star & recall the story of the Wise Men.
*Enjoy a couple of meals illuminated only by the Christmas tree.
*Don't let a rude person steal your Christmas joy.
*This Christmas, give yourself the gift of living in peace with those things you cannot change.
*Take a shut-in a scrumptious Christmas dinner.
*Don't count calories from December 15 through January 2nd!!!!
*Give from the heart.
*During the month, crank up the Christmas music!
*Wear a CHRISTMAS apron while cooking in the kitchen.
*Throughout the holiday season, give your family the gift of a sweet disposition.
*Put something Christmasy in every room in the house.
*Remember that Christmas carols never sound better than when you sing them in church.
*Record a cheerful Christmas greeting for your answering machine.
*Watch It's a Wonderful Life.
*Pray that Heavenly Father will help you see opportunities to be a blessing to others this Christmas.
*Never ever, refuse a holiday dessert!!!
*Remember that peace on earth starts with peace in our hearts.
More to come...XO
