Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

'Tis the Season for Christmas!

It is now legal in our house to decorate for the Christmas season.  On Friday we started putting up the outside lights and put up a few decorations around the house.  We finished up the tree decorating and have just a few odds and ends to finish.  I realized that I don't have a whole lot of decorations for the holidays, but I'm okay with that.  I also took some time to update the blog header as well as my computer desktop.  We are so in the Holiday Spirit!  I've even started with the Christmas music on my iPod.  Love, love, love it!

My only complaint is that we as a nation/world forget the true meaning of Christmas.  I am going to put an extra effort in making it a Christ centered holiday this year.  I know that my kids have everyone asking what they want from Santa.  I hope to turn that expectation into what they are giving to others.

In other topics of consideration...have you ever played Apples to Apples?
We played this game with my family at Thanksgiving dinner.  It was the funniest game I have ever played!  In fact, I was laughing so hard I cried!  My two younger brothers both had tears streaming down their faces as well.  I think everyone's sides hurt from so much laughing.  This is one game we are going to invest in!  I really made the evening so much fun for all of us.

Love to all!!!

Yeah for Apples to Apples. Our friends introduced us to this game years ago, and we too were busting...so we invested in the game as well. It's a cool, laid back game for everyone to enjoy!
