Merry Christmas Eve!
It’s about 7:30 on Christmas Eve, and as long as I’m on my computer I should do something productive right? Gets me out of being social at least.
Okay, so today I am going to talk about snow.
It’s snowing pretty hard here right now. It might not be the first time in my lifetime we have had a white Christmas, but certainly the first time I can remember. I really hope it sticks and we get our white Christmas after all.
Here is a picture I tried to capture of the falling snow. It’s not great, but I like it.
I love snow. I love almost everything about it. I don’t care if I am not four, I will squeal SNOW!!! and run around in it.
I love the sound of the snowflakes hitting the ground with soft thumps. I love how the snow dims the world into a white wonderland. I love being alone outside in the snow, hearing nothing but the world transforming. I love how the moonlight bounces off the snow in the dark. I love soft footsteps in the snow. I love feeling snow on my hair. I love seeing the unique snowflakes. I love waking up after a hard snow and seeing the white world. I even love being cold in the snow.
When it snows, to me at least, the world becomes peaceful. As if nothing else matters. Just snow.
Okay, there’s this year’s Christmas Eve post.
Merry Christmas Eve, enjoy Christmas tomorrow, and remember the real reason for the season. Jesus.
I survived Christmas!!! YAY!!!
I received a lot of gifts, all of which I am very thankful for. Here are a few of my favorites.
Disclaimer: I am not trying to brag in any way, I just thought you might like to read about some of the things I received.
Gel A Peel Set
My grandparents gave me a Gel A Peel set which is tubes of gel stuff that you squeeze out into designs. When the gel drys it is rubbery, perfect for bracelets and other stuff. I love this set! It comes with a lot of gel, and you can make other things than bracelets. Currently I am making doll shoes.
One of my friends gave me a pair of shoes that don’t fit her anymore. They are not new, but they fit, and I love them! They are pink glitter slip on shoes. I love glitter and I love pink, so I love these shoes!
My Grandma gave this to me. I love to bake, but I didn’t have a stand mixer, so this is going to be really helpful. It mixes my cake batter (Or cookie dough, or frosting, or anything besides cement) so much faster then my little hand crank egg beater did. I am so happy with this
What did you receive for Christmas? I’d love to know! Leave me a comment!
Every year I have so many plans for Christmas, which I never get done.
For example this year I wanted to do a gingerbread house, make presents for everyone, and survive. I am still working on the gingerbread house, I had to narrow down my list of gifts so I could make them all, and I still finished them just yesterday.
Survive. Hmm, I don’t know. When I was younger I would get so excited for Christmas, and have a huge letdown. I’ve learned to not get excited about Christmas. I don’t ask for very many presents, mainly I don’t have a lot I want that I can’t get with my own money, and partly to be surprised. I don’t really get into Christmas until a few days before.
But survive? Well I don’t actually hate Christmas, but it can be quite a nuisance. However, so far I have survived.
But I do know how to have fun with Christmas. Which I do.
One of my very favorite things is wishing people Merry Christmas. So…..
However you do it, have a good Christmas.
Now if you will excuse me, Christmas is tomorrow, and I want to finish my gingerbread house. And to finish something you have to start it….
