Merry SITsmas everyone!!!!!

Can you believe that Christmas is only 23 days away. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's Christmas cards today. And to leaving some comment love.


I love this season for many reasons,

1. It is Christ's birthday. What a blessing to the entire human race.

2. Everyone is nicer to each other for a few weeks.

3. The children's pageants. I love to watch their sweet earnestness and wonder what is going through their minds. (Check out the Joseph in this picture.)

4. I L.O.V.E some Christmas lights. The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned.

5. SITSmas contests. ALL DAY LONG....just head on over to Sits and check it out.



How about you, why do you like this season (or not).

I love Christmas because Jesus and I share a birthday month :D Nothing like always having the halls decked and the cheeriest of music for my birthday every year! It's no wonder I'm a Christmas nut! Well, a nut any time of the year, but 'specially at Christmas!

Hi Shelly
Thanks for visiting by blog. I am glad you like our Stitching Stella idea. We wondered about asking people to sign up if they would like to be visited by Stella but then we decided it would be more fun to just see where she went on her own. I hope she gets to visit you somewhere along the line. I hope you enjoy watching her travels.
I have enjoyed reading your blog. We have quite a bit in common, I noticed you have a son who is 13and my daughter will be 13 soon. We also love Florida. Which part do you live in? We visted in 2006 and are returning next year. We can't wait!
Best Wishes
Lindsay
