With all of the meal preparations, gift buying and gift giving, card writing, party planning, Santa visits and everything else to do with the Christmas season, it is easy to lose focus of the true meaning of Christmas. Our good friends gave us a copy of "The Nativity Story" dvd for Christmas a year or two ago. I am embarrassed to say that when we pulled it out of the cupboard to watch it this year, it was still in it's wrapper! I must say, I am so glad that my hubby opened it up and put it in the dvd player last week. It was such a wonderful portrayal of the first Christmas and reminder of what we are celebrating. We really enjoyed it and it's now on our list of must-see movies for watching each year at Christmastime! In fact, I think we'll add it to our agenda for Christmas Eve dinner next year...along with the new found favorite Salmon Chowder! I highly recommend you pick up a copy of this dvd for your own family if you don't have it already!
That's it for now! I am hoping to share some pretty things with you later in the week! I am dreading taking down all of the Christmas decor...aren't you? The house always looks so stark to me after the tree and all of it's glittery glory goes away. Maybe if I get busy and make some pretty new throw pillows or get creative with new decor ideas for the mantles, I will get motivated to put away the Christmas stuff. Surely my fav. bloggers will have some inspiration for me this week! I'll start seeking that inspiration by heading off to the Show of Your Cottage Party at House in The Roses! I am also joining in on the fun at Tablescape Thursday at BNOTP.
Best wishes to you all and many blessings!
