I hope everyone has a wonderful day. We are staying pretty simple this year and not making to many leftovers except of course for a large turkey. It seems the simpler you stay the more calm things are. I think my most favorite thing my youngest daughter and I have made was a Red Velvet cake. It turned out so pretty and it is sooooo yummy.

There is a special give away today over here at Scrapping Servant Hopefully you will be able to take part. If you aren't able to make it over maybe I should do a give away of my own? Hhhhhmmmm, if enough people are interested I may just do that.

Many blessings to you and yours this day. Search for your heart for the things you are thankful for, then don't let them go!! Scrapbook them!!

Christmas????? Oh my!!!

I know that everyone seems to be saying it this week BUT I can't believe Christmas is only 7 weeks away. I find myself not really in the holiday mood. I'm not sure if it is I have so much to put together or if my mind is just changing. Over the years the way I approach Christmas is so different. I don't want to give gifts that don't have any thought to them. I would rather give nothing than impulse buy........that is a BIG step for me!!!

This year I took a challenge from Ali Edwards and chose a word for the year. I may have shared it before but my word has been contentment. To be honest with myself I have to say I have been anything but content this year. I just can't seem to put my finger on it. I do feel a shifting taking place as Christmas is approaching.

I'm going to slow down and take a few things in, sites and sounds. The forecast is for snow this weekend. We shall see.
