Starting to feel the Christmas Spirit

I really do love Christmas, but I sometimes get bummed out about all the commercialism (is that even a word?) of it. I love the Christmas spirit. Just the way I feel, different, better, happier this time of year. For some reason I am not feeling it as much this year though. We were getting way behind on our decorating. We just put our tree up last night and finally completed decorating it tonight. Now I am feeling it (just a bit!) We love to go through all the ornaments that we have collected over the years. It is one of my favorite traditions. Here is our tree. I know the photo is a bit blurry, but I really like the look of it:

I also made some cupcakes for our Christmas potluck at work tomorrow. Who doesn't love a good cupcake. These definately make me smile. I even had 2 extras that would not fit in the container. Bryant and Daddy sure were happy to scoff those up. LOL!!

So just remember during this time of the year, as hectic as it may be, take time out for yourself. Even if for a few minutes and enjoy all the special little moments.

OOoh, did you save me a cupcake?!! They look so yummy. :)

Your tree looks great too! I love seeing all the Christmas lights and the whole feeling of the season. I too am behind but I decided it's okay - whatever gets done, gets done.
