How Do You See Christmas? The true meaning of Christmas will never change for me ...It's the celebration of the birth of Jesus! And yes there are a lot of other festivities thrown in throughout the month for good measure, but we should never forget the true meaning of The Season! With that said ...I found this quote in the paper today ... *********** "Christmas is not a time or season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas" Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933), 30th president of the U.S. *********** This is a great way to look at it!

Dressed Up For Thanksgiving 2012! Here's a great idea from Aimee for a Thanksgiving decoration .... You can get stack-able pumpkins from Hobby Lobby as well as urns.  To give them a little personality, take magnolia leaves and glue them to a circular piece of cardboard and set the cardboard on top of each pumpkin.  Then stick magnolia branches under the bottom of your largest pumpkin... viola!  All dressed up for the Holidays!   At least until Christmas...
