Archives For December 2012
Although Christmas is already gone, I am still finding myself with quite a few Christmas-related posts; if it's okay with you, I'm going to extend the Smithellaneous Christmas season just a little bit longer.
As you can probably imagine, the best part of Christmas for us was last Friday night when Nathan and Meagan walked in our front door after flying in from Florida.
Since Christmas decorating is not my forte, I am thankful for the small army of women in our church who transform our space into a landscape of lit up loveliness.
It has occurred to me that I am woefully lacking in a few important mothering/house-wifery attributes.
This sad thought came to me recently as I was perusing a few blogs of a few friends. Over and over I read about how these various wonder women have been baking dozens of batches of cookies with their families, trading out their festive fall decorations for their splendid Christmas decor, and creating fabulous centerpieces using just three pine cones, a graham cracker and a glue gun.
