When I pull out my Christmas Decor, there are old favorites that make me smile and then there are new things I purchased that I had forgotten all about and I am happy to see a new trinket or two. I know I need to STOP buying Christmas things but I cannot help myself.
I did get one new ornament this year.
Thanks for your prayers for Gatlinburg. I was watching a news broadcast this morning and the reporter was interviewing a local resident. She asked what they needed( I am sure she meant in the way of supplies etc). The man looked straight at the camera with tears in his eyes and said, Prayer!! So keep those prayers going up. Downtown Gatlinburg is intact but several hotels and many cabins in the area were lost. We are getting a good soaking rain and I pray that east Tennessee and North Carolina get it too. Along with the rain we had some tornadoes but hey, we are all okay. There are some trees down and power lines on the ground but we are used to dealing with that here in Tornado Alley.
Off to do some Christmas errands today. And tomorrow I will announce the winner of my December Giveaway. I decided to take the names of all 11 winners and put them in a drawing for the December Giveaway. I have so enjoyed doing these giveaways this year. It has been a lot of fun.
