Christmas Fever...

Good morning! This was my view this morning as I snapped the world waking up. It is a lovely fall day but I feel Christmas coming on. I love Thanksgiving time SO much but I just have to hold back and not get into Christmas mode too quick right after Halloween. It is a struggle! ha.
I do have a rule that I can't start decorating for Christmas until the day after Thanksgiving. This was put into place by Sid for fear that I would start listening to Christmas music in July and decorating for it in Sept.
I. Love. Christmas.
When I was at Mom and Dad's house a few weeks ago I volunteered to bring home several boxes of old pictures to sort through for her. I have had more fun looking at old pictures that I have never seen before. This one is of my older brother and I. Don't you think this Santa is the real thing? Love this picture.
I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and spied these way cool coffee mugs. I have to admit I have a coffee mug addiction. My collection of mugs is way too big but I love each and every one of them. So...I am not decorating yet but am drinking out of these festive mugs just getting ready for it!
Blessings on this gorgeous fall day! Amy

Wonderful scripture from my morning study time:

Ps. 145: 4, 7 & 16

One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts.

They will celebrate Your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of Your righteousness.

You open Your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

Too funny about your "non-decorating" Christmas mug purchases. Sneaking it in where you can. :)

I loved the photo of you and your brother with Santa. Oh, such simpler times...

I loved the blog entry today! I share your love for all things Christmas...I must admit that I did buy quite a few things last week at Hobby Lobby when they had their 50% off Christmas decor sale. Sadly, Chad has the same rule for me that Sid has for you about when the decorating can commence. He humors me though, and is willing to put up lights on the house every year. Love the picture of you and your brother with Santa. Have a great day, Amy!

I love Christmas too! I also have the rule of no decor until the Evening of Thanksgiving, usually the day after! I love decorating and enjoying my tree-something about it all decorated, lit up and enjoying the peacefulness in the early am with my cup of java!

I love coffee mugs too! :)
