The Countdown has Begun

Yes, it's 5 days until the excitement begins at our house this holiday season. Our daughter and her family will arrive either Christmas evening or the following morning. We will have our family Christmas next Sunday afternoon. Between now and the time that they arrive, I have lots I would like to accomplish.

I have a grocery list a mile long and I plan to take care of that in the morning. I've been busy thinking through meals, looking at recipes and making sure I get all the ingredients and food items I need tomorrow. I do not want to have to go back to the grocery store if I can help it. I have plans to make a couple of cakes and will buy the Pecan Pie. Mrs. Smith does a good job with hers and my family will never know the difference. Thank goodness!!! ~smile~

I packaged up all my fudge this afternoon and prepared it to be delivered to the "chosen" recipients. Hubby and I will have fun delivering it in the next few days.

I still have a couple of gifts to bag up and a few to bring from Hubby's office to the house.


Last, but not least, I want to spend time in preparing my heart for our celebration. Preparing to remain calm in the midst of confusion, preparing to enjoy my family to the fullest extent, and most of all remembering how different my life would be if Jesus Christ had not been born in that lowly manager.
