Christmas Is Upon Us

Are you ready?

I sure am.  The kids’ presents all wrapped and tagged from Santa, yes they are still young enough to believe.  Heck, I still believe. 

My seven year old, Connor had asked me about Santa, all I told him was “As long as you believe in him, Santa is always going to be there.”  Hopefully the kids at his school aren’t mean to him about it. 

I had taken them to get Santa pictures and they both know that our Santa here is their Papa, which they have been told that he is helping Santa.  That it’s a lot of work to get all the little boys and girls names and their favorite things to put under the decorated tree in their house.

Believing is always half the battle when wanting something.  I believe I will pass all of my classes this year at Full Sail University, so far I am. 

Our tree is decorated in blue, white and silver, my dad’s, Gampy’s favorite color.  It is very pretty and he likes it.

The Christmas candy mom always makes this time of year has been made and passed out.  I was able to send some to my best friend that lives in Oklahoma.  My favorite treat is the Oreo Truffles.  The recipe I will post on my cooking blog, here.

The kids get out of school on the 19th of December and go back to school on the 2nd of January.

The accomplished feeling is a wonderful feeling to have to one has completely a task such as buying and wrapping all gifts with enough time to enjoy the Christmas break with ones children or family and friends.

I hope you are ready and enjoying your special time with those special people.  Until next post Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.


  1. I think it is really cool that your sons believe in Santa, because as a child it is fun to have to go to bed before twelve, leave out cookies and milk, and wake up extra early with all the presents under the tree. Christmas is a time to spend with family and friends you haven't seen in a long time. The Oreo Truffles sound like a great treat. I love the colors you chose for the Christmas tree blue,white and silver are different,but also some cute colors when you put them together.
