Watch out, because one of these days I am going to do a post with about ten cards on it. Now that Christmas is nearer, I am focusing more on family time and the traditions that we share during this special holiday rather than on making cards. Some of our traditions include: decorating gingerbread houses, baking and decorating cookies, reading Christmas books, looking at the Christmas lights in McAdenville, going to see the Bear Orchestra in Founders Hall in Charlotte, spending time with friends, attending Christmas Eve church service, and sharing brunch with my husband's parents. This year, we have added the Elf on the Shelf to our traditions, and I hope to add visiting the Billy Graham Library. What are some of your Christmas traditions?
Quote of the day: "The first home was made when a woman, cradling in her loving arms a baby, crooned a lullaby. All the tender sentimentality we throw around a place is the result of the sacred thought that we live there with someone else. It is our home ... the place where we retire and shut the world out." -Elbert Hubbard
