oh, hey, christmas...

gah! the past few weeks have been IN-SANE. insane. did i mention they have been insane? i have a pretty neat job - one that allows me to work part time... yes. part time. but these past weeks it was more like full time + a baby + being a wife + mrs. social. add those together, we get insane.

most of you know me. and most of you know that i am a "go-getter." i had too much on my plate but like every type a personality, i got it in the bag already. so here i am, two weeks later and i wonder where last two weeks went. the other week, i worked 14 hours straight. good thing i had plans this past monday or i would have been stuck at work again.

but here i am, december 9th and i can't believe christmas is in like what, 15 days?!?! last year i did a blog type advent calendar thing. i actually had a blast doing it. everyday i did something "christmas" related and wrote about it. well, i am a bit behind, but that doesn't mean i can't do something similar but different. so this year, i am going to do the "12 days of Christmas." yeah, yeah - i know it is about "gifts" but i'm going to do 12 different christmas activities from our christmas card, to wrapping gifts, to decorations, to a cute colton christmas shoot - you will just have to wait and see...

so putting my insane life aside, let's grab some warm coco or coffee, turn up those christmas tunes that we only get to enjoy for like 30 days, sit by the fire and now until christmas day my blog will be dedicated to the glorious season of christmas.

and as i dive in, i want to really us to dwell on matthew 1:21, "she will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." as i really think about that, i continually dwell on the fact that we can't separate the manager and the cross. they go hand-in-hand. he was born to save us from our sins. what a strange but amazing way to save the world. may you also dwell on that this christmas season.
