Christmas “Lists”

Searching around online at all the “stuff” there is to do, to see, to make, to buy, to have at Christmas time–can be a bit overwhelming. In fact, sometimes it feels like my brain’s going in 17 directions at once. A person can blow up that way.

There’s just so much. But sift through it–I did–and bookmarked everything that made me sigh or smile or slow down for a minute and think happy thoughts. The rest can just blow away.

Now, understand–all I can really show you are things that work for me–but that’s ok. People have been scooting closer to whisper good ideas in each others’ ears since before the flood.

I think it’s how we keep each other warm.

  1. Happy Birthday Grandpa!!! ***:D*** I hope we’re making you smile down here!!!

    Now I suppose I should check out those links!

  2. The funeral today for Elder Wirthlin reminded me of a lot of things they said about Grampa. I miss him… Glad to be doing the gingerbread houses today though. That should be good.

    And I’m glad you put that Christmas tree on there. Makes me happy since we usually only see it once a year that way 🙂
