Christmas Prep 2012

In typical fashion, this month is flying by. Is Christmas really only a couple of weeks away? We’ve already been enjoying some fun December traditions in our family. Of course, we are getting the house all decorated for the holidays. Every year I try to figure out how to rearrange the decorations I have to make it look fresh and new. My sister came over this year and she helped me think outside the box and I am loving our little decorated abode! Last weekend, we went down to the Davenport and saw the Christmas Tree Elegance trees and enjoyed lunch and a little shopping downtown. Today we were back at the Davenport checking out the gingerbread building competition. I have to say it seems more and more people are out and about in downtown Spokane. The holiday hustle and bustle is alive and well! Today there was a skiff of snow and as I watched the horse drawn wagon go by outside, it just made me smile!

In the coming couple of weeks, we’ll be shopping, baking, wrapping, visiting friends, watching our favorite holiday movies, listening to great Christmas music, watching the children’s program at church and hopefully, finding time to spend with family and friends just enjoying the season.

I hope you and your family are staying safe and sane this holiday season and taking the time to take in the spirit of the season!
