I'm doing my usual last-minute scramble to get ready for Christmas, so this will probably be my only chance to say "Merry Christmas" to you.
I'm trying to get the cookies done today, then wrapping gifts this afternoon and tonight, then I'll start my traditional Christmas morning cinnamon rolls and sticky buns tomorrow, while finishing the wrapping... Then the 25th will arrive and I will finally get my chance to have my annual breakdown (what I like to think of as my Most Festive Collapse of the Year), when I will cover myself with cookie frosting and sprinkles and
And then, before I know it, the 1st of January will be here, when I will resolve to do a better job next year of making Christmas a joyous, Spirit-filled, relaxing, wonderful time for myself and my family, where we truly remember the reason for the season. Just as I did last year.
Actually, the 1st will bring a whole new round of stress, since we're having a huge family dinner for those who can't be here with us on Christmas Day- complete with more gifts and cookies and probably the tears in the bathtub, afterwards. So, maybe I'll make my resolutions after my secondary breakdown.
However, my wish for you is to do as I say and not as I do- I wish you a stress-free and joyful time with family and friends! I hope you all have a very merry and blessed Christmas. God bless you and your families!
Come back after the holidays- I'll try to get some pictures of the kiddos put up for you!
