Getting ready for Christmas
Well it's begun. I'm getting ready for Christmas. I know it's along ways away, but when you make the majority of your gifts you need to get started early. I'll be posting about my candy making days soon (I will be opening my home to make candy!!! Woo hoo!) but for now I need your help.
There are two things that I need and I'm going to ask all of you for help getting them.
The first thing I need is crayons. If you have any broken crayons, bits of crayons or just crayons that you are not going to use, please let me know and I will come and pick them up.
The second thing that I need is clothes, sheets, towels. Anything that you are not using and you want to get out of your house. I want to make a braided rug or two and I need fabric, so if you have stuff that is stained and just sitting in your basement, or just generally ugly fabric (oh man I just got of a wack of ugly fabric... go figure) please let me know and I'll come and take it off of your hands.
Thanks so much!
While I'm on the topic of Christmas, what Christ-centered family traditions do you have in your family? What's your favorite Christmas memory? What's your favorite Christmas song/carol.
It's hard to believe that soon all of these beautiful golden leaves will be hidden under a thick beautiful blanket of snow(hopefully snow and not sleet, rain and ice). I'm very excited! And at the same time I'm not, my little boy will be 5 on the 21st of December!!! Yowza! It's actually pretty exciting, I'm very excited about the little man he's becoming, we've got a lot of fun, tears and work ahead of us. One day (Lord willing) we'll stand before God in a LARGE Wiebe clan and He will be very pleased with the work we have done! We'll keep praying for that.
God Bless your day!
