Busy Day

I got so much done today! It feels great!!! My house is all Christmasy, I checked lots of things off my "to do" list, and my dog is clean. Life is good! :) Mike is grooming Kasha right now--she is going to look so nice! He worked at school all day getting tons done too. If I only I could accomplish this much everyday! :)

It's that time of year!!

I am so excited that it's time to start putting up the Christmas decorations! I LOVE this time of year!! Our extra room closet is full of boxes loaded with Christmas related things! I think I might put out just about everything this year...we'll see!
December is always such a busy month. My to-do list is quite long--Christmas shopping, Christmas cards, wrapping presents, decorating, planning a Christmas party, celebrating Las Posadas ( and doing our regular daily activities too. However, I LOVE doing all of those things so it's a fun time of year for me. :) In all the chaos it's easy to forget the true reason we are celebrating Christmas. K loves to tell me the story of Jesus' birth--that's what it is all about!!
Tonight we are kicking off the holidays with a visit to Tohono Chul Park. Listed as one of the "Ten Great Botanical Gardens in the World", the park is decorated with 500,000 lights and luminaries! We are going to walk through and enjoy the beauty and then eat some cookies. :) Frosty the Snowman is supposed to be there too! It does not get anymore exciting than that!!!

We have come to "know" many people through adopting from Guatemala. I recently started to follow a blog of someone who adopted her daughter from Guatemala. She in turn, posted about a beautiful little girl named Abby who was also adopted. Abby needs prayers--lots of prayers. Please check out her blog and add her to your prayer list. I cannot even begin to imagine what it would be like to watch my 3 yr old battle cancer.
