Steps of Faith

My actions have not been very good as a role model for those around me.  Especially, when it comes to decorating for Christmas.   Truthfully, I've been moving more like a snail crawling in the snow.  

Good grief....this is totally not like me!  My focus has been on this weather of ours....the temps have just been way to warm to decorate for Christmas!  I'm in great need of some COLD weather!

This past Friday, I finally made a move to get "amped up" for doing some decorating.   In other words...I got some fire in my pants, and got it done!  (Fire in my pants, as in energy and excitement)

I really prefer a fresh Christmas tree....instead of the artificial trees that you buy in stores.  I know that some of those fake
trees can look NO WAY can they compare to a real live tree!  hey, I have lots of memories of fresh cut trees and Christmas.

Last year, I purchased some new ornaments that I was looking so forward to using again this year....BUT....I packed them away and could not find them this year.   I finally found them this past Friday, but it was too tree was already decorated!! :(

Where did I find them????  Packed neatly in a container under my bed!

A few decorations here and there.....

I was very surprised when I found this "P"...... Seems like the P's always seem to go first....   I grabbed this one up real FAST.

The mantel!   I fell in love with this Buffalo Plaid Ribbon!  I really didn't know that this was the name for it, until Shanda dropped by the other day and said she loved the Buffalo ribbon.  I had no clue what she was talking about, but sure buff.....this is what it is called.

More of the mantel.... 

And More..........

This is my Old door that I decorate for each new season!!
Love this old door.....

I'm feeling Blessed and Life is good...

I know that we are in the month of November.....I know that
Thanksgiving is still a few days away.....I really do!

I still have pumpkins on my front porch, and I still have Autumn decorations in our home!  You know, all the orange, red, brown and green decor!

I also have a lit tree in our living room!

It's not decorated yet....only lights!

That's a Fall Wreath on my front door and Fall flowers in the vase on the cabinet....   Fall flowers next to a Christmas tree!!
Crazy isn't it??

It might take me a few more days to get the tree decorated....but that's ok.

Wow......check it out!!  I decorated the tree.   The truth is, I started writing this post a week ago and had to save it in a draft. I'm back to finish this post and my tree
is now decorated.  

I actually have a couple more trees to do...but at least this one will be done at Thanksgiving.   One of the reason's I wanted the tree to be up, is because Tyler is coming home for Thanksgiving ....but he will not get to be home for Christmas!

:(  :(  :(  :(   makes me sad....but it is what it is and I'm thankful to get to spend Thanksgiving with him.

I love making sweets at Thanksgiving and Christmas...
Coconut pie, Chocolate pie, Pecan cobbler, German Chocolate Cake, Pumpkin roll, and more...

BUT....guess what it is that my kiddos want?

Dirt Cake!!!!

Same dessert every single time.......They are not interested in any of the desserts that I want to make....only Dirt Cake...
and I don't really like it!!

I have much to do.....but I did want to wish you
all a 
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Blessings and hugs!
