Who all thinks we will have snow on Christmas? That would be great. The weather man is saying we may get some tomorrow and maybe it will stick around. I guess we will see. We have a couple places to go, but local, so I say bring on the snow. The kids would love it.

Today I finished shopping and wrapping. Everything is ready. I am finally feeling a little more in the Holiday Spirit. I have done a lot of thinking today. I remember back when I was a child and how excited I was. How excited I was about Santa coming. I used to get so mad at my brother, because he was so slow about going to bed the night before and I was so afaird that Santa would pass us up if we were not asleep. I remember my favorite doll that I got one Christmas. She would turn her arm and her hair grew. How neat is that!!
Now I see the same thing through my children. Such a wonderful feeling. I was also thinking today that I want my children to really understand that Christmas is not just about a man in a red suit, it is Jesus's birthday. I do not want anyone to forget what Christmas is really about. I saw on a show where the mother and children bake a cake and celebrate Jesus's birthday. We maybe doing that. I thought that was a great ideal.
And before we know it 2010 will be here. Through everything that 2009 has brought our way, I really feel like 2010 will be so much better. I think mainly because I am stronger now. But, I really feel like we will get through everything. Things are going to get better. There is a lot I want to do and change in 2010 and I just know things are going to be better.
