I must be losing my mind

I don't know what possessed me to do it, but I made and sent out Christmas cards this year. For those who know me, I'm not really a Christmas-kind-of-gal. Too high-maintenance for me. But something possessed me to download pictures onto a Wal-mart card and actually mail them out. Wow! Next thing you know I'll be baking cookies and hosting parties.

Aaron and I chose 7 kids to buy for off the Salvation Army tree this year. We usually choose 2-3 but this year they have a ton of kids due to the economy. So we got a few extra. We have now bought 3 bikes, 2 scooters, clothes, an exersaucer, toys, etc. I'm hoping this brings good karma our direction for the next few months. What goes around comes around. Right?

Things are about to get really busy in our world. We have Aaron's work party this Thursday, his extended family on Saturday, his parent's house on Christmas Eve and then my family Christmas Day. Lots of fun, but I'm sure we'll be tired and a little chubbier than before. I'll post pictures of our ridiculous outdoor Christmas decorations next time. (Think the Griswolds).


  1. That is so nice that you bought all that stuff for kids who need help. I hope it does bring you great karma your way. Have fun with all the parties.

  2. The title of your blog caught my eye and now I'm following praying for your journey! I have a good feeling about you, and soon you will be able to complain about pregnancy symptoms with the best of 'em. Good Luck!

  3. I can´t wait to see your outdoor christmas decorations, I love the Griswolds, I watch christmas vacation every christmas :)

  4. Wow, bikes and scooters? Those kids will be excited. Looking foward to seeing your pictures.

  5. How nice of you guys, 7 kids. Those kids will have such a good Christmas because of you.

    Enjoy all the Christmas fun you have planned.

  6. You are so generous - so important during these tough economic times. Here's hoping to lots of good karma headed your way!!
