December Is Almost Here !!
At my home, all of the above are signs that we're soon starting the month of December. It also means that I'm knee-deep in planning the annual Christmas party for the Potter's House girls and the Melba's Manor girls. (This year is the 4th year) These two homes help girls in trouble and once a year they're guests in my home and they get to have a great time eating, playing games and getting a gift from Santa when he arrives. Yes, Santa has my address and stops by on December 5th with a Ho Ho Ho, a Merry Christmas, gifts and candy.
Then each girl gets a stocking full of goodies that the fantastic ladies of Eagles Landing First Baptist Church have supplied. Shhh. Don't tell them, but this year they will also receive a specially made pillow case that is bright and pretty and will remind them each time they use it that they're loved.
But the part I love best is when Sarah Roberts quotes (from memory) the story of Christmas...the REAL story of Christmas...the birth of Jesus.
My husband plans to record it this year and with her permission, I'll be loading it for your enjoyment soon after the party.
So what do you do each year that makes Christmas special for you or your entire family? Share it with us and you'll be eligible for your very own Santa hugging a soft, cozy lap blanket.
