Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more! (Dr. Seuss)
After I submitted my research papers this fall semester, Kepi and I got busy with decorating our home. Here's our Christmas Tree.
This year, I decided to bake cookies and muffins as gifts for our neighbors. These are the chocolate chip cookies.
Blueberry Muffins with crumbs.
After they've cooled down, I packed them in Christmas boxes with candy stripes liners.
Each neighbor got ten chocolate chip cookies and four muffins.
I love the candy stripes liners.
This is the set up of our dining table.
I think we're ready for our Christmas dinner.
Simple centerpiece - a red lamp and jars of red and silver ornaments.
Yes, I've been so excited for this year's Christmas. I have so many reasons to be excited. First, I am getting nearer my one year re-birthday for my bone-marrow transplant. Second, I have a beautiful home blessed with a loving husband and two pets who love me unconditionally - Dizzy and Daisy. Third, I have the unending love and support of my family and friends. Fourth, I will be another year older next month.
Truly, Christmas doesn't come from a store, but lives in the heart of each and everyone.
