"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!"

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is now focusing-on-Christmas-time!  Sorry folks, I'm afraid that my blog posts will be few and in-between until the holidays are over.  I'll post whenever I can, but I cannot promise articles or even poetry.  Maybe pictures and a few words every now and then, for my time is numbered.  I should be knitting right now...

One thing I really enjoy about the holiday season is all the goodies.  Yeah, call me addictive, but everything is just always so good!  My mama has a knack for making the best stuff each year.  Her peanut butter fudge is to die for!  Honestly, I'm not kidding.  

Our Christmas tree was put up the day after Thanksgiving, and we had a blast decorating it.  Isn't it wonderful that we can have a symbol of eternal life right in front of us, all shimmering and beautiful?

Liberty loves the tree so much that she has the temptation to touch it constantly...even when she isn't supposed to.  "Be a good girl, Liberty!"

The weather has actually been cold enough to snow! (Wishing...hoping...praying...)  Some days have been colder than up north in Indiana.  Hopefully a sign?  Yeah, my siblings and I are (secretly) hoping that it snows again this year (probably a record for Georgia).  Georgians just don't know what they are missing without snow: SNOWballs, SNOW fights, SNOWmen, hot chocolate, SNOWflakes, SNOW-laden trees, icicles, SLEDDING, etc.etc.  They are really missing out.  Christmas just doesn't seem like Christmas without snow.

So, it may not be looking like Christmas right now, but it sure does feel like it!  I get to use hats and gloves and scarves and coats and sweatshirts and socks and pants all at the same time.  Now that the cold weather is here, I find I can bear it so much better than the summer's heat.  This is also the perfect weather for crocheting and knitting.  I've been so busy preparing for Christmas, but hallelujah I'm almost done!  Just in time too, for it is two weeks away!  I'll post some pictures of my finished creations soon.

To complete this post, Grace and I always have so much fun together (okay, most of the time anyway), so we took a few pictures yesterday.  The last one is pretty crazy; she knocked my hat off.  I know, we sure are oddballs.
