It's Christmastime!

Probably like yours, my time this week has been filled with grocery shopping, wrapping presents, addressing Christmas cards, menu planning, shopping again for the one thing that I forgot on the first run to the grocery store, and doing some cleaning of my house for company. Whew!  My time online has been limited. 

Yesterday, my Mom, sisters, and two girls baked and decorated sugar cookies.  My Mom always says that a messy cook is a good cook- so we must be super great!  And our results were works of delectable art!!! Yum!

 Some in the family are more conscientious artists at work.

Sand-tarts~ Great Grandma's Brown's recipe.

                                               Sarah made a special cookie just for Santa.

As we are in the midst of this holiday season, I wish you the
  Merriest of Christmases and a very Prosperous New Year!

Enjoy the simple pleasures of colored lights, smells of pine and chocolate cookies, and a roaring fire in the fireplace, children's laughter of delight, and warm hugs from loved ones.  And may the magic of the Christ Child, grab your heart in rapture once again.

I will see you in the next year with fresh ideas of starting my year with perspective, purpose and passion.  Look for my study of "Mom's Planning" and free printables for you.  See you soon!

Nicol, first of all I commend your use of the word "conscientious" - that some family members are more - conscientious. That made me will smile – my family is the same. I'm dropping the number of posts I write from 10 per week, to 8 per week – the idea is to give me a little more time to read blogs that I heart. I heart yours. So I look forward to reading your words after the new year. And thank you for the award – it really meant the world. God bless and keep you and each and every one of yours.

Thank you Craig! I do not know I do not know if I could ever get to 8 posts! Four is a lofty goal for me! It is so good to hear from you- Happiest of New Year's.
