Highlights from Christmas & A Gift

Christmas 2011 was extremely exciting for me.

This was the first year that my son had any clue what was going on, so that was extremely exciting.

He is only 15 months old and received a guitar collection, and MEGA BLOCKS, of course!

My husband rocks and I got a new camera, computer, and other awesome gadget!

Yes, readers of Nighlon will benefit from this.

Happiness Day is TODAY!

Today was very frustrating to me.

I won’t go into many details.

All I will say is this: People should be more thankful!

No matter your situation, there is always something to be thankful for.

It saddens me to see that this is the world my son will grow up in.

In light of this, I have decided to start a new project.

I want to make a difference and make the world a happier place!

Enter: BEAUTIFUL IMPERFECTION: life is perfect, even when its not!

As I’m sure you have read before, Beautiful Imperfection is my mommy blog.

Its kind of cute too (I’m proud of it)

Here, I am going to start a challenge. A challenge to be a positive inspiration to people.

To encourage others to be happier.

To encourage others to look around them and see what they have to be thankful for.

I will share with you when the details are complete.

Now for some fun!

I have decided to follow in an old family tradition with NighLon.

In my family, my family left the Christmas Tree up until January 2, every year.

This was to bring something good from the old year into the new year.

Following in this tradition, I am going to keep the blog kit giveaway going until  January 3rd.

Just follow the requirements HERE by January 3rd, and you will receive a free custom blog kit!

Today, I am featuring The Sweet Life.

I literally just ran across this blog and had to postpone the other blogs I had lined up.

She goes so well with today’s post.

Steph is inspiring!

Her blog is so happy.

I love her bucket list.

Of course, I love lists, and she has a lot of them.

In fact; she shared one today, and I am going to pass it along!

1. Eggnog or hot chocolate?
BOTH… do I really have to choose?
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just set them under the tree?
Santa wrapped presents, but we had to pick out the paper because Santa wrapped at our house.
Thats the only way he knew which gift went where.
I think Mom and Dad presents will be wrapped for the Tbomb, and unwrapped from santa.

White!

This was the first year I didn’t

RED VELVET CAKE and Christmas Eve Low Country Boil

There are way too many, I cannot choose one!

Yes. It was always new Jammies

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
With very special ornaments. They all have a story.


11. Snow! Love it or dread it?
Dread it! That is changing now that I have a little one!

12. Can you ice skate?
I am entirely too clumsy for that! I like to watch people ice skate though!

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
Finding out I was pregnant! Yep, that tops it.
Next would be when my mom bought me a globe. She put a note on it that said:
“You deserve the world, and now you have it!”

Being surrounded by those I love, teaching my son the real reason for Christmas, and helping others.

RED VELVET CAKE

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Special coffee and everyone cooking together.

17. What tops your tree?

Organize With Sandy has become one of my favorite blogs.

Like I said before, organizing has not been my thing lately.

Its hard to believe that I was at one time the most organized person I know.

The sad part is, I have no clue what happened.

On to Sandy. She is wonderful. She is talented. She is a geek. She is organized.

What could be better? When I read her blog, I often think…

“Oh yeah, she is genius… I want to be her when I finally grow up!”

Not only will you find ways of organizing; stories about being a mom and a wife; and definitely some motivation!

Hop on over to Organize With Sandy, Just let her know I sent you!

Merry Christmas
