I have seen several posts about how much longer we have to the BIG day:
In fact, you might want to know, I just left MJ’s Christmas Crunch . . . 6 days left. If you’ve been there let me tell you now–I-DON’T-WANT-TO- END-UP-LOOKING-LIKE-MJ’S-CALM-FACE– got that? So with that said, I am making a Christmas resolution with you as my witness.
I, resolve right NOW, to stay calm, strive to live the next
six five days in simplicity and in a good cheer.
How I plan to keep my Christmas simple :
First, I have to accept my fate in holiday home decoration that I was never handed any talent in this department so no matter how many DIY holiday photo blogs I visit in hopes of creating the magical Christmas home, it will never happen. I mean really. Just a few days ago I visit Eryn over at Life on Mars and you know it, she
drags charmingly shows me her Christmas in Making with her beautiful holiday centerpiece and Christmas wreath. Gorgeous. Our simple holiday centerpiece looks like this:
Seriously, I need Erin’s holiday centerpiece talent.
The nativity scene is very simple to assemble especially when you use a teenager more interested in playing on his X-Box than create that beautiful nativity you so wish for.
Now look closer at the photo. What the heck!!!
Where is the rest of the nativity pieces????
Helllloooo . . . excuse me, Hire-A-Teen Manger Scene person. I say, this is not complete. Just two animals in the scene? Where is the crib, the three Wise Men and the shepherds????
Oh, that?? Simple. They haven’t arrived yet. And I know you’re gonna ask what’s up with the big rocks so yah, I thought I would add some nature to the scene. You don’t mind, do you? Adds a touch of my creative genius . . . aww, man, Brute Chieftain just killed me!!!
WHAT, ARE YOU SERIOUS . . .?!?
My, oh my, keeping this simple resolution is grr . . going just fine. I’m still calm. Well, I see only five more days now to keep my resolution since its taking me forever to hit the PUBLISH button.
I’m going now and thanks for helping me be a good cheer. Five more days and . . .
