Thanksgiving time already?

Well...I really just wanted to post "something" so Marshalene's blog didn't say that my last post was 1 month ago!:) I can't believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. My how time flies!
My Mom has been busy filling orders for crosses that people want to give as Christmas gifts. They are all so awesome! She's made several different colors and each one is beautiful in it's own way! She's also been busy making things in her house. A new table top for her dining room table (and I don't mean a simple table cloth either). This is a whole wood piece!! A new headboard for her new bed (again...wood is involved). I'll post some pics when I get them. She stays very busy! I just wish I had her energy to complete the tasks that she does. She's amazing and a real inspiration to me! I got to spend the afternoon/evening today with her and my youngest sister Kamron. We had a fun day! I think she wonders why she says "I'll go with you". I drag her all over the town! I got a lot accomplished and marked off of my list of "to do's". Christmas shopping done! Let's just get through Thanksgiving first!
Today Marybeth Whalen, the author of an ebook that I downloaded, posted an email that I had sent to her. It's called A Recipe for Christmas Joy. You can click on her name and go to her blog and read the email or you can click on the title and order the ebook for yourself! It's an amazing book to get you geared up for the Christmas season. I highly recommend it! It REMINDS us what the real meaning of Christmas is all about...JESUS! We need to make Him the "centerpiece" of this time of year. One of the questions in the ebook is, If Jesus were to walk into your house at Christmastime, would He know that the celebration was all about Him? We all need reminders once in a while don't we? It also has some really cool recipes too! I LOVE NEW RECIPES so this was just a bonus to me!
Also, don't forget to check out my friend Connie's blog to order candles. We spent Saturday morning making more to try and stay ahead of it all! I'm sure as Christmas gets closer...some of the spicy scents will sell out fast! So get your order in and get your house smelling yummy for the season!
I'll try and post sooner! But if I fail...I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Take time to really stop and think about what you have to be thankful for!

  1. Oh dear, I just remembered that I was supposed to come by and pick up a candle about a month ago. I'll try and remember soon.
