It's failing outside my window.

It's sticky, cold and beautiful.

I am listening to Bebo sing about the Christ child and I can see the white lights of my borrowed Christmas tree out of the corner of my eye.

It's my brother's birthday.

I wonder what he is up to today and wait with eager anticipation to see him in a couple of weeks.

I miss my family.

I cannot wait to celebrate our Savior's birth together.

It is going to be crazy and chaotic, fast and loud. And people will ask "how can you do it all" and I will explain again I do not know any differently.

I'm excited to see my cousins son, how much he's grown in a year and to meet his two new baby sisters.

I am praying about/for the conversations that will happen.

It's not going to be long enough. I'm praying for time to stand still, that although it may not be quanity of time; it'll be quality.

I'm also hoping there will be snow.

I hope your Chirstmas is wonderful and feels like forever, but in a good way! And at least for the moment, it sure does look like there might be snow for Chirstmas. It's been on the ground for weeks now and still coming! It is falling right now even, and you are so right, it is beautiful and I might add peaceful.

Not sure if you heard, all our snow has melted! Do not fear I ordered up some fresh snow just for you! I think it may star arriving as early as tonight! LOL!
