Merry Christmas (and Giveaway winners)

This is what I’ve been up to the past week.

My girls are home from college and its a delight to see them. I have truly missed them. This is an older picture. My middle boy is now taller than I am.  Christmas at our house involves lots of music, a little bit more good food than usual, and almost no shopping at all so it’s a joyful time.

mormon-lds-ideasI’m the stingiest/meanest mother in the world and the kids are only allowed to ask for one modest gift. They get exactly what they ask for so there are no surprises. Poor things. They have never known any different and so far there haven’t been any complaints. We do service throughout the month so they see that Christmas is about giving and helping and making the world a better place. If you have a moment click this link and watch my favorite video about bringing the spirit of Christ into Christmas. It’s a sweet, and rather unusual christmas pageant.

So Merry Christmas to you and yours!

No matter what your belief, I think we all share a wish for  love and peace and a better world. Mother Theresa said “Let no one come to you without leaving better and happier.” We can do that!

And here are more giveaway winners!

  1. What a beautiful family!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I can’t believe that your girls are in college already! The best lesson you can give your family is the joy that comes from giving to others and you have done a beautiful job. My Gram made dolls and clothing for the children in Foster care in her small town. When I was old enough, I helped. The thought of children not receiving a gift for Christmas was heart breaking for my young heart. That lesson stuck and I continue her practice of making sure a few kids have a gift to open. The kindness of this season is something I wish I could bottle up and open throughout the year. Wishing you a beautiful day with your family gathered around. Be joy-filled! xo

  3. What a wonderful video.

    I so enjoy reading your blog. It is gift to the creative spirit.

    Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas.
