Where has the month gone?

Evidently, I went to bed last night on December 1st and woke up today December 17th! I can't believe it's only 8 days to Christmas! ACK! I still have orders to make! Don't worry, I'll get it done. I just haven't posted in so long I missed it. These two weeks have been chock full of stuff to post about. So, without further ado, here goes!

First, I received this BEAUTIFUL Believe book from Darlene!

I knew it was beautiful from the pictures she had posted (of those this pic is one), but I didn't realize HOW beautiful it was until it came in the mail.

Speaking of it coming in the mail, not only did she send me the book, she also sent a lot of other fun stuff:

Reindeer Poop? I laughed out loud! Actually, it WAS chocolate covered peanuts, but we took care of them pretty quickly. Hee hee.

A sample of Bellagio Caramel Praline hot chocolate and a sweet card from Darlene completed this beautifully wrapped gift that I was so happy to receive. I haven't had the hot chocolate yet. I think I'm waiting until I can s-a-v-o-r it! Thank you, Darlene!

I will end this post here, because as I was working on telling you about our Women's Christmas party, I realized I wanted to go into much more detail than I wanted to here. So, I will save that for later. In the meantime, here's one of my favorite renditions of a classic. James Taylor is the best.

I know what you mean! I think a lot of people were taken unawares at how fast Christmas is coming. I just realized Monday that it is next week and not two more weeks, as I was thinking! I'm hosting the family for Christmas Eve, so I need to get myself in gear!

I know what you mean about this month going by fast. I sent out my last few orders today. Now I have time to focus on our family's gifts. What a busy season for anyone with a shop.

Have a wonderful Christmas!!!! :)

Hi Heather! I'm sorry I haven't been by lately! Sounds like your Etsy shop is really doing well! A lady at Curves is telling me I ought to put my jewelry on there! Maybe, after Christmas. I hope you are all doing well! Merry Christmas! Aunt Laura

I just jumped across from your comment on Squigglemum

I hope your wish comes true and that you spend many more christmases with your mother.

I think this Christmas has flown by faster than any Christmas I remember.

I'm so sorry I haven't been by for a while. Google has had my blog so messed up that I have spent hours daily trying to get it fixed and they have no idea how to help.
I have missed coming by and wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas
