I Believe...

...that Christmas is pretty symbolic. Maybe some things weren't originally meant to be but I made them that way in my own mind ;). The tree and decorations - part of the celebration, like anyone would do for a party right? :) Party for Baby Jesus' birthday! ^-^ The star or angel at the top of the tree reminds me of the star the three wise men saw that guided them to baby Jesus or the angels that sang and rejoiced the night he was born. The presents we get to give to each other are wrapped and we get to wait in anticipation to open them all of the old testament - throughout the pages it shows Jesus was on his way... what an awesome present He is ^-^. So while St. Nicholas is another story as well having brought gifts to people, which is another cool story :) the symbolism I see in the shirt I wore is more that I believe in the "magic" of Christmas and the possibilities... that anyone who truly wants the way, the truth and the life can have it, in abundance through Christ. Its a pretty awesome story - why not be excited for Christmas!? :)

I added a few embellishments to the t-shirt for the Christmas Holiday party at work. Of course this was brought on by a co-worker who said we should don tacky Christmas shirts :) though I think I may have failed because most people just said the shirt was cute lol :)

It was a good time - my coworkers get up reminded me of a girl in the 1960's who would be ice skating. Super cute :) And while I wore my santa hat I did not come home with it - because I SOLD it :). (yay!) :)

Alright - I hope you enjoy the pictures! :) We had a lot of fun with them :)

In a Winter Wonderland

And the tacky shirt itself :) 
I added a pompom to the top of his hat and pieces of felt and yarn to the shirt :)

Christmas time prayer...

The tree is up! The stockings are hung with care. The kitchen window and other areas have been sprinkled with dashes of Christmas items... as I sit here typing by the light of the tree I remember Christmas growing up. I thought our house all decorated and Christmasfied in the living areas would give someone an idea of what a gingerbread house would look like if you could live in it! :)

 I LOVE to decorate, create and imagine, so Christmas has a special place in my heart, 2nd place on Christmas anyways. ;)  Christ being born a babe and endure all he did remaining blameless and sinless to be an offering for us all is the most beautiful love story to me. I love what Christ did and what he has done for my family through the years, though times have gotten tough (and they do! ;)) He's always brought us through and will ever be, faithful. The twinkling lights are fun and I'm thankful for the income He's given my family so I can buy gifts that put smiles on peoples faces when opened, but I realize its because of Him that I've been blessed with so much. That I'm in a position to give...depending on the season He's allowed me to give of myself to others, my time, my talents, my money, etc. may Christ be glorified in me and that others would experience Christ for the first time this Christmas season.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas! Thank you for reading my blog and following along in my creations. I appreciate and pray for you! Be blessed! ~Dawn
