About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

I Bought Christmas Cards!

I LOVE CHRISTMAS! I just can't help the fact that it makes me 10 kinds of happy. I love everything to do with Christmas. I am so smitten with it that I put up Christmas trees before Halloween (I really don't like that holiday.) For Halloween, I let the kids dress up (in non-scary costumes) and we go to my grandparents' house. They eat candy that I buy them and my grandparents have for them. Then we come home and watch a Christmas movie. lol

Brent started talking about Christmas movies last night as we were going to bed. He was saying that he was sure the kids would want to see "Jingle All the Way" first again and quoting parts of the movie. That got me going in my "oh so happy Christmas mood" and I could barely get to sleep.

Imagine my joy today when I arrived at Sam's Club and saw CHRISTMAS STUFF! They have been getting in toys for Christmas for a few weeks. This was the REAL stuff though. There were Christmas cards and wrapping paper among other items. I used a lot of self control and walked away with just two boxes of beautiful cards with manger scenes on them. I can't wait to get more Christmas items though!! lol

Anyone else a Christmas looney? (Tracie, please know that I know how badly this part of me calls 'crazy' to you, but I just can't help it. lol) Is there really no one else in the world who starts to put their decorations up before Halloween? Its okay if not. I am fine with being different! :)


  1. I love Christmas but I cannot say I have ever bought cards in August. But then again I usually stock up at the end of every year because I love after Christmas shopping! As my girls get older and get more receptive to gifts I seem to enjoy decorating more and more, I have a feeling this year is going to be the best one yet because my 3 year old will be able to help. I have never had a child who could partake in the fun before. And we do go deco crazy..lol

  2. It is A.U.G.U.S.T.

    You are N.U.T.S.

    I love S.U.M.M.E.R.

    winter sucks

    that's all I have to say about that

  3. This reply is two years later, but just FYI here in Costa Rica, Christmas starts right after Independence Day which is September 15th!
