Gearing up for the holidays.

Christmas time is quickly approaching, if you don't believe me - watch the television ads that are trying to entice shoppers out by offering "BLACK FRIDAY" specials every Friday up until the actual day after Thanksgiving.

In that spirit, I began the hunt for my Christmas tree. Remember from a week or so ago when I mentioned that I made some Christmas ornaments? I found and purchased that 7 1/2 foot Christmas tree from the thrift store last Friday.

It took all the restraint I have in me to wait until yesterday to decorate it! Pictures to come!

In lieu of the Christmas holiday, a little early (I have been well informed from family, friends, co-workers and facebook friends) - I wanted to share a little treat from my sister, Kait.

She submitted this picture to the HPJ (High Plains Journal) Christmas Coloring Contest. She had to submit this back in the first part of October to be eligible to compete against all the other 7 to 10 yr. olds who also drew Christmas inspired pictures.

I think she did a marvelous job, she's only 7 remember (a 2nd grader).

This is the link to the website and the rest of the pictures entered in this year's competition.

Good Luck Kait!

  1. Can't wait to see the pictures. Like I said it is a Canadian thing, that we start thinking about Christmas as soon as our Thanksgiving is over in October, and probably with you living so far north it's just rubbing off on you.
