I could skip both but Gabe has a concert coming up and I missed last weeks tap class due to a stomach virus. I have the least experience in the class and can not afford to miss any. The instructor says I'm doing great but so far I can't crack a smile. I must appear to be very serious. I don't know what I am. I'm nervous and embarrassed. I hate when I'm not good at things. I must be a glutton for punishment though because I keep putting myself in situations where I perform lousy. You know, like kitchens and dance schools.
I was still nervous driving this morning but I managed not to white knuckle it or cry. I was remembering the first time I got "caught in the snow." I was buying groceries when about 10 flurries fell from the sky. I prayed through clenched teeth the whole way home. Hahaha! I guess I am a little more mountainy now then I thought.
So now that I have run all of my errands; I am "in" for the day! There is no where I prefer to be this time of year then at home! I think my home is just beautiful when decorated for Christmas. Yuletide touches are in every bit of my house. Even the bathroom has an especially cute Christmas shower curtain and some other fun accessories.
One Christmas Past, Shalah visited.
"Michal, your house looks beautiful.... I mean, it's like Santa threw up all over the place!"
Yea! What a compliment!
Here is a little tour for you:
|Best seat in the house|
|The lounge...so to speak.|
|The Holiday does not begin until Auntie Cutie's mistletoe arrives!|
|I think books make such pretty decorations. I have more on top of the piano.|
|The nativity I painted a few years ago on the basement mantle.|
|The scene outside makes the basement's look complete!|
|I love peeking into my sleeping boys' room that is lit up with their own little tree!|
