Wow first Friday in December already! 🙂
Christmas will soon be here….just in case you were not aware of this!
So my post this week include lots of Christmas things.
We decorated our Christmas tree last Friday. I always put it up the day after Thanksgiving. My big teenagers let me know that decorating the tree was NOT as fun anymore. But I stuck to my guns about them helping out, and we had fun with it, and ended up decorating our dear dog Nina also!
On Monday night, SportTman had basketball practice and Drums was out on errands. That left The Inventor and I home. We decided to have an impromptu girls night out. We went to our fav Chinese food place and enjoyed dinner together and then went out for a little shopping together at our local sports store. She had a gift card for the store, and purchased some cool sweat pants with her school logo on them.
I love Christmas music and Amazon has tons of free Christmas music available to download. I just download Joy to the World by Casting Crowns the other day….for FREE!

Here is a picture of one of my all time favorite Christmas ornaments. I carefully pull it out each year from a box with this written on the front, “Trevis First Ornament 1931” It was my grandparents first ornament for their tree. It’s a true family heirloom, and I so gently nestle it at the top of the tree each year.
And dear daughter had a mini spa all ready for me when I got home from a long day. She got out the foot bath, the back massager, and had my lap top already for me. She lit several candles and had pretty Christmas music playing. Isn’t she the greatest 12 year old in the world!?!?!?
Hope your week was filled with many special favorites also! For more Favs check in with Susanne!
