Yeah, so theres one week til Christmas. One of my most favorite times of the year. This weekend was supposed to be full of Christmas activities, but a foot and a half of snow cancelled most of them. A little depressed but I did get to play in the snow. (and make snowmen!!!!) I do love making snowmen, with little hats and scarves. I haven't gone all out with corncob pipes and button noses though. at least not yet :) Maybe when I have kids. . . .
Friday night a group of us did get to go to Longwood Gardens for one of the Christmas concerts they have there. I can't believe that I have lived this close my whole life and this is the first time I have ever been there for Christmas. It is amazing!! They have Christmas lights on all their trees and bushes! And I mean the whole tree is lit up. Absolutely gorgeous. Inside the Conservatory they have all kinds of poinsettia and amarillis of every size and color. And christmas trees made out of all different types of plants. The concert was pretty good to. Its so rare anymore to hear a concert in a public place that actually glorifies God! Jesus is the reason for the season and its so sad to see people take him out of it!
Our progressive dinner was cancelled Saturday. I was really looking forward to that. I have been really been getting involved with the college and career group at church. I enjoy spending time with them. Hopefully they'll be able to reschedule it for January. I was asked to be a part of the 4-part devotional. I am so excited to get to share a bit of my testimony and my heart with my peers and friends.
Since I had the extra time on Saturday I made little candy packs for all my coworkers. Most of them probably won't care one way or the other, but I am so excited to give them out! They were simple, I just stamped them up and added a few pieces of candy. Its not alot.
I can't afford to go out and get everyone a gift, although I would love to. I love to give gifts. I enjoy the looks on peoples faces. Its just a little something to wish everyone a merry Christmas.
Besides theres something about giving away homemade stuff that really warms my heart. Like giving away a piece of myself :)
