So Thankful!!!

We had a very joyous Christmas weekend! I must say.....i'm so sad it's over! I'm always the one who sits alone in the dark living room, with the tree lit at the end of Christmas day....almost crying! I know, I'm a huge SAP! :) I love all the festivities, I love being with my family, I love all the special moments, I love reflecting on Jesus......it's all so wonderful!
So....to cheer myself up....I always think of fun things to look forward to! (does anyone else do that?) Also, I have lots of plans for "everyday life" too. :) Getting my house back to normal for one. lol! I have lots of projects planned, maybe going on a mission trip, health goals....so much exciting stuff!
I love looking forward to things! haha!
I don't think I will take my tree down until after new years though. :)
I love having it around.
I will share some more details about our Christmas fun soon! I just wanted to give a little update right now.
Oh....we have SOOOOOOO MANY SWEETS IN THE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is such a good and bad thing! ugh! I am always trying to be aware of my health....and it's so stinkin hard with a ridiculous load of cookies, candy, pie and such just laying around the house.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful, relaxing day! :) I sure am!!!
xoxo,
Amanda

I agree, I'm sad that it's over, too. We spend so long getting ready for it and enjoying it, and it goes by so fast. I leave my tree up until New Years too. I just love having it up!
