A Christmas In Need

Posted 10-11-2008 at 09:56 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I received an unusually bitter email this week. As the financial markets have melted down world wide it seems to have reached us here in an odd way.

"How can you celebrate Christmas with the clear suffering going on in the world?" the emailer asked.

Believe it or not, we get this from time to time. It is not that people hate Christmas. For whatever reason they seem to resent the fact that we celebrate it.

The email went on to ask what we're going to do about all the misery in the world this Christmas.

Wow.

Well, Mysterious Emailer, I'll tell you what we're going to do about it: we're going to celebrate it again.

It amazes me how Christmas can be so misunderstood and misinterpreted even still. Some out there seem to think that we're part of some big plan, some organization, some nefarious element with an agenda to push.

Some suggest is, by it's nature, a religious thing. That Christmas...

Back around.

I know I went MIA (missing in action) for a couple of days but I'm back now. I had to prepare for our camping trip, and then i wasn't feeling well so I was in bed for a couple of days.

Camping was fun. The weather really held on well for us. It didn't get cold until about 4 am and it warmed up around 7 am. By the time it did get cold all the kids were cuddled up and snoozing so they didn't even realize. We had a wonderful time. Everyone got along well. I believe the adults had just as much fun as the kids.

Now we're planning our Fall Festival for church. It sounds like it is going to be really nice for everyone. Face painting, moonbounce, and pony rides...who wouldn't love all that??? (lol). We're making apple butter and vegetable soup too for the festival. I'm just sooo blessed to have a wonderful little church where the people are so nice, and supportive. It really is like family.

The economy has me rethinking Christmas gifts. I wasn't planning...

Busy life...

Posted 10-01-2008 at 07:30 AM by Christmas Snow Angel

Time is flying and Halloween is right around the corner. So many things are planned. A camping trip with our youth group from church is this Friday. Friday is also Fall Picture day at my daughters school. A field trip to the pumpkin patch in a couple of weeks. And lets not forget PTO meetings and 4H meetings.

Lets start with the Camping trip this Friday. Luckily it's only a overnight/day trip and not the entire weekend. One cold night is enough for me HA! It's mostly girls going on the trip with a couple of boys. We're going fishing, nature walks, and flashlight hide n seek. Lots of good food and fellowship.

Fall picture day...wow those pictures can be expensive!!! Hair must be done, clothes must be ironed! The girls want to look their best because this is their yearbook pictures. I'm going to be taking my daughters to a farm to do their Fall pictures myself. I can have more then one pose and it's not gonna cost me a arm and a leg!

For the life...
