She's really sassy! . . . .
She's a cutie!! I've been having fun embroidering guest towels for Christmas. Actually, I've done about 50 of them so far. Some for Etsy and some for gift giving myself. They're always nice to have for those last minute little "oops I forgot" gifts.
I think her attitude perfectly depicts how we all feel during those bustling days during the Christmas Season. But heck, they really are fun, and the joy of giving always makes up for it in the end.
I've been in several stores that are already decorated for Christmas. I remember when the Christmas Season really didn't begin until after we had celebrated Thanksgiving. How did we ever get it all done in just a few weeks???!!
How did we get all the cooking and baking and cleaning and shopping and visiting, done in such a short time??!! Well, for one thing, we weren't glued to a TV or computer, and evenings were spent baking cookies, getting things ready for company, etc. Since department stores were open only two evenings a week, and not a single store was open on Sundays, we did some time management applications, and adjusted schedules to get it done on the available days. And you know what? It all got done.
I loved those Christmases . . . yes, it was hectic, but the delight and anticipation of seeing your children open their gifts, being with your family and friends and enjoying the Holiday with them all, was worth every minute spent.
