Merry Christmas!

Or at least Happy Holidays for those of you that think it's too early for Christmas. Not me!! We're already decorating for Christmas mainly because our home will be featured in the Holiday Tour of Homes this year but we do love Christmas in the Haugen household. I actually just signed up for a Journal Your Christmas scrapbook class earlier this week. It is to help you slow down and think about the true meaning of Christmas and really enjoy this festive time of year. I'll be posting my LO's for my journal here for all to see. Maybe it will inspire someone else to slow down and reflect on what the holiday and Christmas mean to you and your family. Another reason I wanted to Christmas-ize our house early is because Lance and I really need to slow down and enjoy life. We've been living by the "Work Hard, Play Harder" motto for the last 2 years and it's time to sit back and relax. To enjoy each other, our animals, the dream home we're making, and the fabulous life we lead. We have been truely blessed in our life so we need to enjoy it and not run around like chickens with our heads cut off!
So here are my Christmas resolutions:
1. To slow down and smell the Christmas cookies (eat lots of them too!!)
2. Spend quality relaxing time with my wonderful hubby
3. Go to church every Sunday in December
4. Get together with friends and family without feeling the stress of trying to fit everyone in
5. To take lots of pictures to document the festive time (hopefully with my new camera!!)
6. To stay current and on task with my Christmas Journal

hmmm....what else?? If I come up with more I'll update my list! :)

Happy Thursday!
