I have definitely neglected this little blog of mine this month.
I have to say that while my house has been decorated since Thanksgiving, and I've been entirely done with Christmas shopping for days now, I'm still feeling pretty Grinch-y lately. Or maybe kind of like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree--->
I've been feeling pretty down and all the busyness of the month is just making it worse. There's no time to deal with these feelings when there are a million places to go and things to do. So I put on my best happy face and pretend everything is ok. But really, when you ask me how I'm doing and I say "great" or "fine"... I'm lying. Mostly because that's just a normal question to ask and most people either don't really have time to go into a lengthy discussion of how crummy you feel in the hallways at church, and they especially don't want to hear that you are feeling pretty crummy around Christmas.
I am excited for Christmas Morning, though. I put a lot of thought into my gifts this year and I know everyone will love what I got them. I'm especially excited for Luke to open his gifts this year. This is the first year he really understands presents and will love more than just the boxes & wrapping they come in!! In fact, I did such a good job, it may be hard to get him to move onto each new present after he's opened one because I know he will love them all!!
Anyway, this is all I've got to say right now, I may or may not blog tomorrow with pictures of my Christmas decor.
