Monday Sparkles

Hiya dolls, I hope the weekend was great! Mine went rather quickly. But, I am very excited that we're finally on the home stretch to Christmas Day - I say again, where did the month go!?! I still have a lot to do, but I have my determination hat on and I will get everything done. I will spend the night before baking up a storm :))) This is just a short post today as I know everyone will be tired for a Monday, but I always like to stop and remember the good about Christmas & not the stress and just wipe away the negatives that get piled up during the month from crazy shoppers, longer work hours and preparing and just think on what it's really about!! I hope all of you have a great Monday & week ahead!! Keep warm and safe!!

Love love!
xoxo




He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.  ~Roy L. Smith



Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.  ~Janice Maeditere



Christmas gift suggestions:  To your enemy, forgiveness.  To an opponent, tolerance.  To a friend, your heart.  To a customer, service.  To all, charity.  To every child, a good example.  To yourself, respect.  ~Oren Arnold
 
 
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976

Mmmm, are you gonna show us what you baked in your kitchen for the holidays! I know it's YUM YUM!!! Enjoy this time with your family and continue the spread of positive energy into 2012. We all need it. I surely do appreciate it.

  39. I love these Christmas light images. This month has crept up on me too. I've been madly doing my no-bake chocolate Christmas goodies (truffles and mousse to be made tomorrow), and more to do today. But am looking so forward to a party we're hosting on Friday, which includes kids who still enjoy the magic of making gingerbread houses! Hope you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. xx
