Christmas preparations, in a nutshell.

First and foremost- please hug your loved ones. After the national tragedy of the loss of those beautiful elementary school children, I’ve been reminded to tell those special people in my life that I love them. Like this handsome face!

We’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas in our home.

I love our Charlie Brown tree! I have almost all of our gifts wrapped and ready, under the tree. I wrote out all of our Christmas cards, too!

We spent some time working on our homemade gifts for the family, as well- home brewed beer! We bottled at Joe’s house on Saturday.

So far, I have all of my Christmas print orders fulfilled, and everything framed and matted, waiting to be happily given as gifts 🙂
This may be the most prepared I’ve ever been for Christmas, as long as I can remember. I’ve been getting spiritually ready, too…
Our church has been discussing The Advent Conspiracy for the last few weeks. If you’re looking for a deeper meaning of Christmas, it’s not too late. Check it out!
I’ve had a few short, fun runs this week- I’ve mostly been cross-training and doing some exercises to strengthen my hips. My physical therapist checked me out upon my return from Boston, and my muscles aren’t quite in balance. Bring on the resistance bands and ArcTrainer!
