I am still around. I have blogged a little but they have involved pictures so those posts have been on the family blog.
I really need to stay off Facebook.
I do. I enjoy so many things about it but I also end up feeling "beat
down" after reading some of the posts. Especially posts that call into
question family traditions.
So I am going to lay it all out there.
Santa does come to our house. He does. And he brings gifts.
I know the reason for the season. So do my kids.
I don't feel like I am any less of a Christian because of jolly St. Nick.
I grew up with Santa and so far haven't been tainted for life. I know I am only 42, but surely there would be some sign by now?
And yes, I sometimes say "Happy Holidays".
Again, I am not trying to take the "Christ" out of Christmas.
It just seems to cover all the holidays from Thanksgiving to Valentine's Day.
yes, we have one of those "creepy" elves at our house. For us, it is a
fun tradition started two Christmas seasons ago. Every morning my kids
get up and go on a Buddy hunt. Where is he today? What is he up to?
There, confession over.
Now I am going to move on. To a post about the creepy elf who hangs out at our house for most of December.
December 1, the kids woke up and found our dear old elf friend hanging
out in the bathroom...They were quite excited he was back. I wasn't as
excited that he used lipstick to write on the mirror but I guess that
was better than permanent marker...
Happy Holidays! (And Merry Christmas to you!)
