Christmas in SITSville

Photobucket

Now that the Christmas shopping season is upon us like flies on poo, I find myself falling into my usual bah humbug mood. In the race to find the right present, make the right foods, get to everyone's parties that "I just can't miss", I've stopped enjoying the holidays. In fact, I'm usually grumpy, tired & downright miserable.

Well this year I've decided to take back Christmas. I vow to make Christmas about the family that was created in that manger so many years ago & the family that I have here for myself today.

I invite all of my SITS friends to do the same. Just say no to another day at the mall. Make some cookies, put on some Christmas music (Elvis works best for me), grab someone you love & smooch them up good!

Merry SITSmas! I am saying NO to the mall - I'm hand-making my gifts this year (well... most of them, anyway). Hope you have a more cheerful holiday this year!

Good for you Mimi. That is the best thing to do around this season. Celebrate the baby child born so long ago and spend time with those you hold dear. Perfect!

I love your idea for Christmas, and with money so tight for so many, what a perfect year to forget all that stuff & focus on what Christmas really is. Merry SITSmas!

I completely agree!! We make homemade gift from our kids to our families every year. It isn't about the most expensive gift, but the love and thought put into them!!

What a pretty tree!

Merry SITSmas! I saw your post on SITS. She's a mastiff. You know like the Turner and Hooch dog or the dog from Harry Potter.

Merry SITSmas!!

I found a way to get over that blah! Adopting a family! We adopt a family each year and it is so much fun picking out presents for someone who rarely gets anything, let alone a bunch of Christmas presents! So much fun!!

But the flies on poo thing is genius!! hehe
