Hi! This time next week, it will be over — Christmas 2012, that is.
(I bet you were thinking of the end of the Mayan calendar weren’t you?)
Have you noticed how slowly Christmas-time seems to be in coming, say, in October. Then the first of December gets here and wham! It’s Dec. 25 before you can turn around!
Amid all the hustle and bustle of shopping, cooking and preparing our homes for the holidays, it can be easy to overlook the “reason for the season.” May you and yours have a blessed and safe Christmas.
Some folks not only get presents at Christmas, but December is also their birth month. Happy birthday wishes go out to Jeanne Caldwell, last Saturday; Melanie Cuzick, Saturday; and Juanita Smith and Kathy Jefferson, Christmas Day!
I’ve heard rumors Santa Claus may be cruising around our vicinity on Saturday, on top of a big fire truck no less! Keep a watchful eye out and you just may see him!
(Our Waco Volunteer Fire Department must have a direct line to the North Pole, or have friends who do!)
That’s about it for this week. Have a great one! I can already smell the pumpkin pie!
