Believe in what your heart is saying...

hear the melody that's playing
there's no time to waste
there's so much to celebrate...

Ahhh Sunday, how I love thee. And it looks like I'll be baking the day away with my mom and sis so this will be loads of fun. I've got the music cued and ready to go with the Glee Christmas CD up first and then the Lynn Anderson Christmas album after that. In our family Christmas just isn't Christmas until you've listened to "Ding-A-Ling the Christmas Bell" at least a couple dozen times. It's tradition, LOL! :)

Ok,ok time to get to my card... yesterday it was all about the Pure Innocence little boy and today the little girl is back on the scene looking just as cute as she ever does. I also broke out some cool Hero Arts Christmas tree stamps to complete the scene which kind of reminds me of the Peanuts Christmas when they are at the tree lot with all the big fancy trees and it is the humble, little tree that is chosen. Hmmmm... we may need to watch that cartoon today too now that I think about it. ;)

I hope your day is as sweet as can be, later gators!

Amy this is so sweet. I love the tree she picked out. We put up the tree after I got home from work yesterday.(Mitchell did NOT! want to put it up without me there. He is my sweetheart and very loving kiddo.) Anyway, we listened to Glee and put up all the decorations. I am super glad my boy wasn't having it without me. :O) Have fun with your family. Hugs, Lisa
