Christmas Spirit



It really is Christmas time already. I can't even believe it. I t seems like each year the year goes by faster and faster! Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. I love the twinkling lights, the music, the joy and the celebration of Jesus Christ. I LOVE giving presents and picking out the PERFECT gift for my loved ones. So...to get everyone in the mood I put new music on my blog and I AM DOING A GIVEAWAY!! This will be our first Christmas giveaway BUT not the last!!



OK...here's the rules....You MUST leave your name in the comment section on the BLOG and you must tell me your 2 favorite things about CHRISTMAS!! YEAH!! I just love giveaways!


Also...I want to encourage EVERYONE to go to their local store and get an angel off your local Angel Tree. My hubby and I picked one out this evening while at Wal-Mart. This time of year is about giving, celebrating Jesus, being thankful for what we have, and sharing the love with absolute complete strangers! Why not?? Its Christmas and there are so many children out there that will end up with absolutely nothing on Christmas. As my hubby and I were looking at the Angel Tree and trying to pick someone out, I noticed that some of these kids want clothes and shoes for Christmas, not just toys. That told me that some of these kids really don't have much at all...they would just be SO happy with a new pair of jeans or tennis shoes. So...go out and make just one child's Christmas special!


OK...so here is what I am GIVING AWAY!!
This is an ADORABLE Christmas Tree Headband. It is on a green cotton headband and it has a real jingle bell in the center! :o) You can request it on a clip or headband if you are the LUCKY winner!
Also...we will be having a SECOND WINNER AS WELL!! YEAH! The 2ND winner will receive a small Christmas bow/headband of my CHOICE, but it will be CHRISTMAS!! So, make sure you leave your comments on the blog and lets make this giveaway bigger than the last!! The more people interested in the giveaways, the MORE I will do...I PROMISE!! SO START LEAVING COMMENTS AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!
PS: This CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY WILL END ON DECEMBER 3RD, SO GET THOSE ENTRIES IN!!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend and let's get in the giving spirit...I know I AM!!
XOXO
Noelle♥

Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love that you get to be with friends and family and slow down and enjoy I enjoy seeing the kids faces just light up when they open a gift that is something so small but so exciting to them. This year as well is our daughters first Christmas which makes this one extra special!

Wow--it is so hard to pick just two favorite things about Christmas time. I love this time of the year so everything is great. I would have to say that the Christmas musicals at our church is something I always look forward too. I love reminding my kids of the TRUE meaning of Christmas. I also love the decorations and the music. It brings such a peaceful, joyful feeling to me. Christmas really is the BEST time of the year!!!

1. Taking Ava to HallMark to pick out her new ornament for the year! That is super fun. Just when you think she is going for the Disney princess, she demands Star Wars Chewbacca. That's right...big hairy monster in the center of my tree for the next 15 years!! Don't be jealous!!!

2. Another excuse to eat pumpkin pie!!

Kristina said...

Kelsey said...

My name is Kelsey, and there are soooo many things I LOVE about Christmas! The weather alone, makes this time of year PERFECT! The lights, music, decorations, giving presents, seeing the look on my daughters face over and over again as a fun present comes her way! It is all just amazing!

Katy Reininger said...

i love this time of year! too bad it cant be this time of year all the time!

1. GIVING. i love giving. we are all reminded this time of year of giving. i think it is unfortunate that we only think to do this simple and necessary act once a year. also, i feel we give to the wrong people. we give to people who already have so much instead of the people who have nothing. as Jesus said...what you do unto the least of these, you do unto me.

2. FAMILY. the holiday time is time to spend with family you dont usually get to see. often times we forget we are surronded by these people everyday. we should have to wait for a holiday to see them! i love going to the christmas eve service at church with family! its priceless! im also getting a new neice for christmas!! =) she is due christmas day! i cant wait! that will be the best gift ever!!

Hi Noelle!

Here are my two favorite things about Christmas:

1. Celebrating the birth of Jesus! I love the candlelight service my church does and the opportunity to really acknowledge the fact that Jesus humbled himself enough to be born into this world as a baby.

2. Sharing all the fun stuff of the season with Ayla - Christmas dresses, ornaments on the tree, lights throughout our neighborhood, and cheerful gingerbread houses!

This is a fun question. I could go on forever. :)

Merry Christmas,
Tessa Yeakley

This year my 2 favorite things about the Christmas/Holiday season are:

1. Being surrounded by all the little ones in our family. My cousins and I were all pregnant at the same time so this year all our children will be 15, 16, and 17 months so I will enjoy watching them get excited about lights on the tree and house, opening presents and playing with one another.

2. My daughter being able to spend time with her great great grandmas... yes she has 2 that are still alive and I know this is such precious time that we will not have much more of.


This is so great Noelle~ I love reading what is so special to everyone else too!

Love,
Kristen Lindner

TwinsTwice said...

My favorite things about Christmas are:
--watching my children light up when they see Christmas lights and hearing them squeal with delight when they spot a tree/ decoration. "Yook Mama, a Cwistmas Twee!"

--I also love that my husband gets to stay home from work for a few extra days. He misses so many of the amazing things I get to see because I am lucky enough that he works to support our family so I can stay home. I love listening to him tell me all the wonderful things he sees our kids do!

Thanks,
Christy K.

2 Favorite Things About Christmas:

1. First and formost, celebrating our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!

2. We donate a turkey to a family in need and adopt a child to give gifts too b/c their parents are in prison. The child never knows about us, and the gift is from the parent.Such a wonderful thing!

Although there are many more, these are my favorite two.

Merry Christmas!

My 2 favorite things about Christmas are standing outside on a cold night & watching the Christmas lights twinkling while seeing a falling star in the sky. My other favorite thing is watching my 6 & 3 year olds asking did you see that & did you make a wish.

My most favorite thing about Christmas is seeing my girls on Christmas morning opening their gifts. As a child we didn't get much maybe a few things if we were lucky so I love seeing their smiling happy faces.

My 2nd favorite thing about Christmas is being with family. We all live busy lives and it's wonderful when we can all come together and celebrate such a wonderful time of the year!

the Boysen Team said...

Super, fantastic, absolutely favorite things about Christmas.... My husband makes a big fire in the fireplace while we decorate the tree. The kids all sit on the hearth with their backs to the fire and every 2 seconds run up to us to feel their backs because they think are on fire! My favorite is when my youngest does it. Last year she was 1 1/2 and couldn't talk, but would run up to us, grab our hand and put it on her back and just laugh and laugh! Just such a simple, wonderful, easy family time.
Second, when my son was 2 he was really excited that it is Baby Jesus' Birthday. So every year since we have made a birthday cake for Baby Jesus! Kids will always keep the imporatnt stuff in perspective! So fun reading everyones! Thanks for sharing!MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Mellissa said...

Hi Noelle! Hmmmm I have so many favorite things about Christmas, I dont know if I can narrow it down to only 2!
Okay, here goes...
1. ITS JESUS CHRISTS BIRTHDAY!
2. Every year I get an angel or adopt a family, I get their lists and purchase everything on it and then take it to them on Christmas Eve...Hang on a minute Im choking up here...to see those little children and their moms and dad or whoever it is raising them faces and the tears of joy and the smiles is almost more than I can handle...I get my true reward being able to enjoy them for a moment that they did not even know if they were going to be able to have...Whoa!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

It's so hard to pick just two, but my absolute favorite thing about Christmas is the quiet that you can find (in between all the hustle and bustle of EVERYTHING). It seems that I always have a chance to take a breath and reflect on the past year...

I also love having the chance to visit my large family and extended family and trying to cram visits into as few of days as possible. My husband and I call it the "Tour of Texas", and we do it every year!

Cheers!

There are too many favorites of mine during this time of year, but this year my #1 favorite will be watching my 8 month old little girl experience her very 1st Christmas!!! She absolutely LOVES Christmas trees...the lights, the sparkly ornaments, and the Christmas music! She's too cute to watch...she gets so excited and starts giggling and laughing!!

My 2nd favorite thing about Christmas and the most important is the True reason for the season...Jesus Christ. I love all that God has given me and my family and I would'nt want anything more than to celebrate Jesus's birthday!

I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!

DyingRose said...

My two fav things about Xmas are.... Decorating the tree with family... sharing the experience with new ones and even sometimes new friends...

Second... seeing the looks on little kids faces, even the children I don't even know... There smiles just lights up the world and make me feel so alive and know there is happiness in this world, even with saddness and fear of what's could happen tomorrow.
