Today, I’m guest posting for my dear friend, Glynnis Whitwer who is celebrating A Sweet and Simple Christmas on her blog. Glynnis has been sharing with her readers different ideas on how to make this time of the year very special and memorable without it becoming overwhelming for you and your family.
If you’re stopping by from Glynnis’ blog today, welcome! I’m so glad to meet you and would love to introduce you to my family.
As you can see, I live in a house full of males, so Christmas can sometimes be extra tricky for me. My guys are not into baking cookies, long leisurely trips to the mall, or sipping lattes while getting Christmas pedicures. But, they love celebrating Christmas and always want to keep this mamma happy. After all, when mamma’s not happy – nobody’s happy. Or, so is the saying in our house.
We do enjoy going to Christmas concerts and celebrating the holidays with friends. A nighttime ride through neighborhoods while looking at Christmas lights and a quick shopping trip for presents works too. There is always Christmas music and candles lit at our home during this time of year. The sweet aroma of cinnamon, french vanillla, and spruce pine greet our guests each time we open the front door.
Something extra special that we love as a family is getting Christmas cards in the mail. I’ve shared the reason why how we make this a very special time for our family on Glynnis’ blog. So, hop on over to her sight and find out more.
While you’re there, be sure to sign up for my giveaway or leave a comment here. Since 2013 is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to give away a Proverbs 31 Devotional book called God’s Purpose for Every Woman. It’s one of my favorite devotional books of all time!

Merry Christmas from our family to your! May you experience God’s love, grace, provision, and presence this holiday season and draw closer as a family as you seek to serve Him.
