It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas


Well can you believe its almost December? This year has flown by for me what about you? I have been listening to Christmas music for the past three weeks which excites me. I love Christmas time....everything about this time of year is wonderful. I love the smell, sound, feel, spirit....love it all! So most of the Christmas decorations are up so now we can sit back enjoy it all. I finished the tree about an hour ago....excuse the picture I took it with my phone {I have "misplaced" my camera}. I'm frustrated and sad about this but I'll find it...its somewhere in the house...Im just not sure where!?!?!


So Santa surprised me early with a Christmas gift {well kinda...Ive seen it but I don't get it until Christmas} I got a NEW camera! I have about 4 compact cameras and I promise they all have had great use but its time to upgrade!! I got a Nikon SD5000 {aahhh...Im so excited} I was definitely not expecting this gift either!! I cant wait to put my photography skills to use.


I not only got the camera but 2 lenses...the one above and the one below.
My church founded "Christmas in a Red Bag". CRB is for single parent families. You adopt a family and purchase Christmas presents and deliver them in a red bag. My girlfriends and I have decided this year instead of doing dinner and a gift exchange, we agreed to adopt a family. Today at church we received our family. A mom, daughter and son. I am so excited to be able to pray and shop for this family. God is so good and I pray this family realizes and can feel his love for them.
My birthday is the 20th! Im not sure what all will be going on but dinner with friends and family is always a must!! oh and a cake. haha! {my mama has never let me down}
I hope everyone had a great weekend....my dinner just got here so we are off to eat and watch a movie!
Have a great night!!
