Slowly ,but surely its beginning to look a bit like Christmas in my home. I have a feeling the season is going to come and go this year very quickly,although I am trying to take it slow and easy and savor every second. I will be in and out of my home some helping my parents get my brother back and forth to his doctor appointments...he has two this week for more test,then on December the 3'rd he will go back for the results. We are praying the cancer has not spread to any other place in his body. Tonight is the Christmas Parade in the little town over from ours..we always try and go watch it,my little grand Jaxon may be driving his John Deere tractor he got for his birthday in it. Meme sure can't miss that :) Speaking of Jaxon...he is so excited about everything to do with Christmas this year...being three years old now....he is much more aware of all the fun things happening. He loves the Polar Express movie and refers to Santa Claus as HO HO! Its really very cute,but mama is making sure he understands the true meaning of Christmas,that it is all about Jesus' birthday,and that's the reason for the celebration. In my home...I have decided not to do Santa as much as I have in the past (refer to title here) ...so my vintage cloth Rubber faced Santa's are staying packed away in their tub this year. The rest I gave up! I collected all kinds of Santa's at one time. I do have an old World St. Nicholas I brought out,and several snowmen as well. Still,I am keeping Christ in my Christmas...more than anything else! After all...he is the reason for the season....Right?
Jaxon helped his mama decorate their tree...he was so excited about hanging all these Christmas balls together around the bottom of the tree, his mama didn't have the heart to rearrange them...although they were driving her batty :)
The little country bunny in this picture I bought from a friend who handmade them,as a Christmas gift for my daughter when she was about 13..her big sister got one that same year,but she no longer has her's.
