Christmas spirit

I'm starting to feel the Christmas spirit finally.  I am usually done making/buying gifts by now.  I've fallen behind this year.  I have been sick for the last 3 weeks, so that hasn't helped the situation.  Charlie and I did manage to find a tree (fake, and fairly cheap -- but it does the job) and got that up and decorated.

It has been snowing here in Michigan -- and holy wah, it has been cold!!!  It sure looks pretty though.  

Our landlords have put up some decorations outdoors.  I thought these guys were cute and festive.

So, I have some Christmas shopping to do this next week.  I've got tons of cleaning to do to get ready for my family coming out for Christmas Eve -- not to mention figuring out Christmas baking and planning some meals.  I really like this time of year though -- so it will be fun.

I didn't get that job that I really wanted.  I didn't even get an interview.  I am trying not to let it bother me too much.  I am the type of person that believes things happen for a reason.  If this job wasn't meant to be then who am I to disagree?  There must be something better in store for me.

nice tree. I need to post a photo of our skinny fake one. It's funny, but I can't kill it by forgetting to water it!

Sorry to hear about the job. How disappointing.

I'd love to barter some Christmas gifts with you. I've got lots of stuff made up. Hope you can make it to town soon! I miss ya!

Love the photos. I am opting out of Christmas shopping this year and don't miss it one bit. But I am going to start crocheting blankets for each family next year. Or 'afghans' as they are called.

I hope God has something better in store for you, but how dissapointing about the job. IT is so hard to understand sometimes why things don't work out the way we thing would be best. I'll pray something even better comes up. Your tree looks great... :)
