I blogged a bit about my "December funk".
I did still LOVE the idea of counting down to Christmas with our little family. Taking time to remember and cherish the season of celebration. Honoring our Savior. and savoring the family he has given us, both immediate and extended.
But ya'll DECEMBER was nutso. SO very busy. So not all of the days got their just-due. Some were quite half-hearted. But that's the great thing about doing this countdown thing intentionally, even when you don't "feel" like it. Memories are still made, love still extended and hope still REIGNS. That's what Christmas is all about.
insert how it is now March and I'm just now getting around to wrapping up the post about our Christmas countdown as an indicator of how we rolled at the end of 2012.
Here's a super quick recap (ha- when have you ever known me to do anything quick in deeprollingrightfield? ha.)
I decided to scrap the idea of making our own Christmas tree. I mean, I loved last year's green Taj Mahal and all, but seriously, what was I thinking? Instead, we had die-cut Christmas lights to hang. They started out all white but "turned on" one at a time, all month, for a fun multi colored decoration in our dining room.
