Merry Christmas Eve, y’all!
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
Today is when our immediate family celebrates Christmas and it’s a beautiful day! I woke up to what felt like the inside of a snow-globe. It’s not snowing now, but it’s cold enough that it might start snowing again, which would be wonderful!
I just finished making my sister’s present. This year we each drew a name for one of our siblings and I got Helena’s name. I’ll have to show you what I made for her (it’s what she wanted) after everyone else sees it. I also made my mom something. I really enjoy making gifts!
Last night one of my sisters, Mariah, made a whole array of yummy sweets. She was extremely kind and even made three things that were sugar-freee (pictured above). I’ve been off of sugar all year, so it’s such a huge treat to actually have sweets to eat! Amazing sister of mine! (And in case you wonder, they are delicious!)
Last year I continued my daily and weekly goals all year long, and when the new year started, I wished I had left myself some ‘reward’ time without all my goals. So, at the beginning of this year I put an amendment in my goal list that from December 23rd until the beginning of next year, I would have ‘free’ days, except for writing 100 words a day and marking it in my notebook. Since I have about 7 daily goals and 7 weekly goals, I cannot even explain to you the amazing feeling I have when I think of the fact that I can just be free for several days!
So yes, this is the first time in two years that I’ve not done my daily and weekly goals! Yea! =)
Have a Merry Christmas!!!
