Christmas time again!

I was thinking back to my post from last year around this time and how sad we all were around here. I remember feeling like it was so unfair for everyone to be so happy about Christmas, when we were stuck in a FEMA trailer with a one foot Christmas tree on the table.

This year, we are in so much better spirits! All three of us were so excited to go get the Christmas tree. We didn't even hesitate to put up the lights on the outside of the house, which is usually a big pain the butt! We got it all done last weekend together and it is so nice to have the smell of Christmas back in our house again!

I am still passing tons of trailers around the city, and I can't help but wonder if those families are feeling like I did last year at this time. I'm sure they are, so my heart goes out to them, along with a prayer. They will have their day in their homes again, too.

I love so many things about this time of year and I especially love getting the mail everyday and seeing whose Christmas card we have received. The photo cards are so much fun. They are already filling up our refrigerator! It's so nice to see how everyone has grown and changed over the year.

Well, I hope everyone is having a very happy holiday season! The weather sure feels like Christmas around here...we were in the 20's this morning! Burrrrrr!!! Stay warm, enjoy these days and don't take one day for granted! I know I am enjoying it this year!!!!
