I want to take a minute to say
yes I have been very neglectful in my blogging.
I have been trying and trying to find that holiday spirit, but it
still eludes me.
I see all the beautiful bloggers out there showing their homes,
so amazingly decorated for Christmas
and I just shrink away in defeat.
I have always been a Christmas nut in the past, always
decorated and all decked out for the holidays.
What has changed me so much, I have been asking
The only answer I can come up with is
that I miss my family.
There is a piece of my heart missing, it's
800 miles away in Oregon.
I have always had all of my kid here with me for the
holidays in the past. We would celebrate all month
long as a family, making baked goods, Christmas Crafting and
Last Christmas was my sweet little Jackson's first Christmas.
What a great time we had watching him try to open his presents.
He didn't know why all the hub-bub but he loved it and
gave it his best shot.
This year will be even better for him, I so wish he could be here.
I know he will be here in January, but I'm a grandma and very needy.
Who wouldn't be just look at this little man.
He makes my heart ache with all the love I feel for him!!
There is one bit of fun to look forward to,
my daughter Alex will be making it home for Christmas this year!!!
I can't wait to have her home and in my arms.
I'll have her home for two whole weeks!!!
I can't wait!!
My sweet honey has been so very patient with my funk.
He put up the Christmas lights and bought the Christmas tree.
I so appreciate his effort and love him a bunch.
I tried going to the mall to see if I could find a little more
Christmas spirit, but all I wanted to do once I got there was leave.
I so don't mean to bring anyone down, but through it all I
believe I have found the answer.
Christmas is not in the stores or malls,
it's in our hearts and mine is just a little lonely.
I'll be fine, this to will pass.
I am so blessed to have such an amazing family,
and a life I love!!
So please accept my apologies for being neglectful and a bit of
It's reassuring to know that even Scrooge got a
Lot's of love to you and yours this
