Merry Christmas to everyone out here in Blog land. I have been so busy with art/craft fairs the last couple of weeks that I have been a bad blogger. I am so sorry for my absence. I wanted to show you my new nativity ornament, I have been looking for one of these for a long time and finally found it at Carlton Cards in the mall. I was so excited. It has become rather difficult to find a Nativity of any kind these days. Last week we went into three different stores (which normally would carry nativities) and there was NOTHING, NADA, NIL, ZILCH! I was so depressed. Everything is santa, snowmen and reindeer, which is fine if you're into that, but my boys have grown up and they are not so much into that anymore. Now is my time to decorate with things that mean more to me than santa and little kid things.
There are some amazing Nativities out there, you just have to fork out the big bucks to get them. This ornament was only $17.95 - perfect for my budget!
I had the best time shopping with my son lastnight. I rented a scooter so that I would last longer while shopping (I feel old and I get some funny looks because on the outside I look just fine, but on the inside I can barely walk around the mall these days!) I have gotten to the point where I do not care what people think, I want to spend time with my family and if the only way to do that is to rent a scooter around the mall well then by golly, I'll do it!
So here's wishing you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all and I hope that JESUS finds a special place in your hearts this year!
Many hugs and blessings to you.
