I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

WELCOME TO MY CHRISTMAS BLOG!!
Christmas is my favorite Holiday and my favorite time of year!

I go all out decorating our small townhouse for all Holidays but especially Christmas!

Every room in our home has a different Christmas Theme and Color Scheme!!

19 Christmas Trees in 2012!!

I prove that you do not have to live in a large home to have several Trees!

This blog is dedicated to All Things Christmas!!

Now on to the Holiday Craft and Gift Fair at our Church.......

It was a HUGE success!!

I had the best time because I was NOT a Vendor and thoroughly enjoyed myself, being able to walk around, chat with Vendors and Customers, keep an eye on things making sure everything was going as planned, making sure the Kitchen had enough food, etc!!

And I shopped more then I did when I was a Vendor in the past because I was not stuck in my Space!!

LOL!!
