And Let the Celebration Begin!

One of my favorite things about December is all of the Christmas parties that we get to attend. The past couple of nights, I purposefully stayed home in my jammies to rest and recharge to prepare myself for the next 3 weeks.

That's right, 3 weeks until Christmas! Whohoo!

Crazy how life can get not only on the weekends, but during the week also! And I love it!! I was going over my calendar for the next week and I am blown away that we have something everyday. Want a peek, OK!

Today: C's dance recital

Saturday: In-laws Christmas breakfast and visit Salt Lake Temple

Sunday: First Presidency Christmas message

Monday: FHE - Christmas lesson on Mary, Joseph and Savior (Jen, using your Holland story, thanks!)

Tuesday: Relief Society Christmas Dinner

Wednesday: YW White Elephant Party

Thursday: Shae day Christmas Lights

Friday: Friend Christmas Party

Saturday: Ward Christmas Party (YW have a part in the program)

Sunday: Breathe after big day of meetings

I could go on and on and I am sure that some of your lists could probably trump mine.

The only reason I bring this up, that as we are very busy this season, I am just trying to remind myself and others to enjoy the moment. Don't let the stress get to you and be sure to take a few time outs now and again. Enjoy the people and the Christmas spirit. Enjoy the time and then take a moment and Be Still!

3 weeks! ahhhhh!
I'm like you--the next 3 weeks are insane. It doesn't help that Mariko was born on the 20th.
Lets try to enjoy it--before we turn around it will be BORING January!

Wow, that is scary to me only 3 weeks to go!!! I had better get some more shopping done.

So, you're telling me you don't have time to come decorate my house. Fine, I will do it myself. :) Could you at least help me consume all of the treats?

Three weeks? I don't want to hear that phrase again until early March. Yeah, that sounds good.

Ok, we are busy, but not quite that busy! Have fun!

You guys seem just about as busy as we are. We only have 2 nights that we don't have to do something between now and Christmas. And I'm already losing my mind! Good luck to you!
