So it is finally here...Christmas eve. This year really has flown right by. I hope you are all ready for Christmas...and I feel very sorry for you last minute shoppers....Im so tired of the crowds. Yesterday on my lunch break I had to run to the grocery for one small item and I SERIOUSLY drove around the parking lot for 12 minutes before I ever found a spot...and should I say a spot that someone did not fight or run me over for. Its a parking spot you can have it if it means that much to you...Im not running you over for it. hah!
Im working until noon and then its off for the Christmas festivities! This evening we will have dinner at Aaron's parents house and hang out for a while. Dinner is bound to be delicious bc Aaron is a GREAT cook and his mom is making my favorite...CHEESECAKE! Im sure I will gain 25 pound this Christmas but Ill head right back to the gum January 1st! Later tonight we will go to my moms house and open one gift {pj's} and then watch Christmas Vacation!! This movie has been a family tradition since I was a little girl. I love it! Then its off to bed so Santa can come! Christmas morning my mom makes a HUGE breakfast after we open all our gifts. Then its off to my grandmothers for more gifts and family time. Oh and of course Christmas lunch. {seriously the food never ends} After lunch I usually head home and crawl in always so exhausted but I only nap for a little bit because there is always too much going on....I cant miss out! :)
I have so much to be thankful for and I truly am blessed! I hope and pray that each of you remember all your blessings and the most important gift of all. JESUS CHRIST
Last night my girlfriends and I delivered our gifts to our Christmas in a Red Bag family. This is Christmas for Single Parents. Our parent was a single mom who works a full time job and strives to support her two children. It was so awesome knowing that we were allowed to help her out this year but one thing she said that really stuck out to me is no matter how hard the times are {she just got a pay cut} the Lord provides!! This is so true! Even though times have her down and out she has kept the faith and her family was taken care of this Christmas!!
God Bless and Merry CHRISTmas!!
