Happy December! Christmas is coming! Are you ready? I still have a long shopping list, but I’m really looking forward to buying some fun things for my family and friends. I love Christmas. The house is decorated inside, and my husband outdid himself with lights outside. I’d show you a picture of our lights, but most of them are buried under lots of snow!
We put up a small tree this year because of our smaller house, but it’s still pretty, isn’t it? Our angel isn’t on top of the tree yet because she’s missing her head. I guess we packed the head in one box and the body in another. So, not wanting to top our tree with a headless angel (yikes!), we’re waiting until we either find her head or buy a new tree topper.
We’re so excited to spend Christmas with our kiddos without having to drive all the way back to Wichita once the holiday is over. We’re having a blast seeing Aidan, Danny and Shaen whenever we want to. It’s wonderful. Besides celebrating Christmas this year, Aidan will be a one-year-old on December 25th! What a wonderful day that will be. He’s getting bigger (and cuter) all the time.
Katie Johnson won a copy of GATHERING SHADOWS. I’ll send it to you, Katie, when I get my copies in the spring.
WHAT’S HAPPENING BOOKWISE
A WEDDING TO DYE FOR is out! The third book in my Curl Up and Dye series has finally been released. I’m so excited about it that I am giving away an eBook copy to someone who leaves a comment telling me why they want to read it.
IF YOU WANT TO ORDER A SIGNED BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS:
Please email me as soon as possible. Our goal is to send out all the books by December 16th. Cost for a signed book is only $15.00. That includes mailing.
Merry Christmas. No one will stop me from saying it. No one will stop me from celebrating the birth of Christ. Although there is a move on to strip Christ from Christmas, it will never happen in the Mehl household. And before I get emails, yes, I realize Jesus wasn’t born on December 25th. But it doesn’t matter. Although we should celebrate His birth every day, setting aside one day to remember the day the world changed forever is special, sacred, and glorious.
So…Merry Christmas. The Son of God is born. Grace and peace has come to all of us. Thank you, God.
