So. We’re getting close to Christmas now. Is it just me, or does it so not feel like Christmas yet? Where’s the snow? And yes, even the cold? Things I’ve been doing to try and get in the Christmas spirit:
– watch Christmas movies
– read the Christmas story
– make it snow here, on my blog
– sing Christmas songs or something unrelated to the tune of Christmas songs
– listen to Christmas music
– write about Christmas
– look at Christmas pictures (all these kids I used to know are growing SO MUCH! Is that allowed?)
– eating/making Christmas cookies
Oh, during church this last Sunday was the Sunday School Christmas Program. It was fantastic, and everybody did a great job! There’s always a kid who yells the songs and it makes me smile. This girl is gonna be an alto, for that’s about where her notes were. Too bad she was louder than every other girl in her little group of 4-year-olds and kindergarteners (I think it was that group). It was apparent when she didn’t know the words, for she would keep hitting the approximate notes and just “ahh” if she didn’t know the words. I’m not making fun here—it was precious! I thought it was lovely. But THAT was a rendition of a Christmas story and it made me smile lots! And going to Christmasy events is totally something else that helps get into the Christmas mood!
So tell me about how you’re making it feel like Christmas without snow! Christina said something this morning along the lines of “With no snow, it’s harder for people to slow down for the holidays.” True, isn’t it? At least that’s how I’ve been feeling lately.
But, I’m smiling, ‘cuz CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE! Anna =)^2

Wairwaitwaitwait WHAT?! You guys don’t have snow?? I thought I was the only one stuck in a bunch of muddy snow that fell yesterday (which is going to be the only snow I’ll get for Christmas..).
That is sorta shocking!
For me, wrapping presents is a great way to get into the christmas spirit…it took me forever to wrap all of the ones for you guys and now I’m gonna move on to the “German” presents =)
Oh, and it’s finally christmas break, so that helps, too =)
Lots of love!
Christmas really snuck up on me because the snow hasn’t been here to give me a hint. At least it snowed a bit today to get me in the spirit of the season!
