and a Merry Christmas to all!

I've had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. We've had some drama going on in our lives. (Thankfully, not between Joey and me - we are rock solid now!) The drama - aside from the homeowners insurance dilemma, has put us in a financial bind which put a damper on our holiday spirit. We have to come up with money to drive to Mississippi and pick up Devin, bring him down here and do it all again a week later. we also have to pay a down payment on our new homeowners insurance, buy presents and pay all of our bills - which always happen to be due the last week of December and the first week of January. Excuse me while I wallow in my self pity.

We have tried to get ourselves in the spirit despite the circumstances. We have a great family here in town that sells firewood and Christmas trees. We firmly believe in supporting local businesses and these are good people. We were able to get a 6'ft tree for $25.

We are lucky enough to have a fireplace to decorate which makes it so fun to decorate!

All this has been a blessing in disguise though. Joey and I have realized that we really do have everything that we need and we were already incredibly blessed this year. We bought our home, we have jobs, and most importantly we have each other! Really - what more can we ask for?
