All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth- part 2

                   Where oh where did we leave off??... Oh, right. The seventh day of christmas!!

On the seventh day of christmas my true love gave to me.. Ice Skating Gracefully

When I was little I would watch women like Michelle Kwan on the olympics and I thought to myself, " Im going to be her someday."... haha sorry for everyone who was almost convinced that I was a gold medalist.. i know I know I fooled all of you... I do love to ice skate though.. even if hitting the ground is more of my forte, than hitting a triple axel.

On the eight day of christmas my true love gave to me.. A cute christmas crush who married me.

I love my guy more than anything... We love christmas time. Goofing off, drinking hot cocoa, and going on adventures is where you can find us. I am so thankful to have such an incredible man in my life.

On the ninth day of christmas my true love gave to me.. A whovilleation party

I love all things food, christmas, red, green, and sometimes the grinch is welcome. We started this tradition last year of having a whovillation just like they do in the grinch. We eat a big meal and have a party with family. How much better can that get... all in all christmas brings people together, and that brings joy, I am pretty in favor of joy are you?

On the tenth day of christmas my true love gave to me.. A snowman who looks just like frosty.

You are NEVER too old to enjoy building snowmen. Take the time this year.. just build one.. a scarf some gloves and a few hearty vegetables is all you need (carrots included of course) Snow will ALWAYS be magical whether you are 5 or 50.. A white christmas is one of the prettiest sights to see!

On the eleventh day of christmas my true love gave to me.. HUMILITY

I have so much to be thankful for and every time I look around me and take a minute to truly see all that I have I feel humbled. There are many that dont have family to be with on christmas, many who dont have money for "gifts". Be the gift. Give what you have. And love who you give to. It doesnt need to be something materialistic it can just be an extra smile.. a wave.. shoveling someones driveway.. but remember the things you have and not what is on the wishlist this christmas..

Last but not least the twelfth day of christmas

On the 12 day of christmas was quite special to me.. Our savior who gave his life in Calvary..

He was born in a stable with cows by his side... 
He had no money or jewelry with pride..

The savior so humble so loving and meek..
Dare we forget him on his special week?...

He spent his life giving and never asked more..
Than simple acts of kindness, maybe a knock on a door?..

Christmas oh christmas what are you all about?
One person who changed the whole worlds turn out.

He died on a cross, and gave all he had..
This Christmas lets honor him and make others glad!!
