Good morning bloggers,
Happy Friday, This weekend the Monroe family begins to get into the Christmas spirit. We intentionally don't start our Christmas decorating or celebrating until December. So this weekend we'll head up to Gordon College to enjoy their yearly Christmas concert. If you live near a college, I highly recommend you check out their choir performances. We feel the Gordon concerts can rival Boston events that are much more expensive. Gordon has a big music dept so they do a fabulous job and it's become somewhat of a tradition for us. It will be a little sad this year since Sarah won't be with us, but Jessa is coming and I'm sure we'll enjoy it. Then Sunday is decorating time. The patriots game will come on at 1:00 and we'll start to put the tree up. I don't go overboard at all. A tree (with reasonable #'s of lights and ornaments), a mantle display, some table decorations (napkins, candles) and some greenery on the stairs. I may also do some lights in the front windows and I might (might) put a christmas towel in the bathroom. Compared to others we know, this is very modest, but I think it's just right for us!
So, today's card is 'anything but a card' so I decided to make a fun gift bag. Isn't he the cutest thing. Love how he turned out with this fun patterned paper.
Oh and before you go, if you have any holiday entertaining to do this December, I have a fabulous recipe for THE BEST lasagna. It's more of a meaty lasagna and not so much a cheesy lasagna but YUM - it was good.
Thanks for stopping by today. Make it a great day.
