christmas is coming

Dec 20, 2010

Christmas is coming,
The goose is getting fat,
Please do put a penny in the old man’s hat.
If you haven’t got a penny,
A half-penny will do
If you haven’t got a half-penny then God bless you.

I grew up singing this song at the top of my lungs, over and over again, all Christmas season long. Good memories.

Christmas is coming and I have SO enjoyed this lovely month of December. We went to SLC to see Christmas Carol at Hale Centre Theatre. What a treat! What a lovely way to fall in love with humanity and the goodness that is in all of us. A big THANK YOU to my mother for gifting us this fun family trip and spending the afternoon with us. The lights on Temple Square were beautiful and it was so fun to watch my children’s faces light up with wonder at the magic of it all.

Yesterday I was blessed to be able to sign a beautiful song at church and miraculously (it was miraculous because I hadn’t made it through the song once without making some major errors before the performance) it turned out so wonderful! The spirit of the Lord was so strong. It was such a privilege to be part of it.

This week I have family coming into town, lots of sewing to do (laughing hysterically at myself because the reality is, Kat will be doing the sewing and I will be doing the pressing), grocery shopping, and I still need to find presents for a few important people in our lives. I also need to finish my friend presents…when you have as many friends as I do, the friend presents take quite a bit of time. They might not get done till after Christmas, which is fine by me. It lengthens out the season, don’t you think?

Well, I am off to sew press.

p.s. What fabulous-ness do I need to do for Kat and Jennifer for creating the cutest Christmas skirts ever???????? Send your ideas my way!
