Christmas Traditions

”Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner”

This is the first year we have started our two 'traditions'. The first one is Elf on the Shelf... Meet Ernie...

Ernie was sent to us by Santa to keep an eye on Jayda...every night he heads back to the North Pole to 'report' Jayda's behavior... IT WORKS!!!

Click here to adopt yours!

Our other tradition is 'Key for Santa'...since we do not have a chimney, we have a magical key that only works for Santa on Christmas Eve!


We do the usual leave cookies by the tree and read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" as well. Christmas is our absolute favorite holiday! Oh and we can't forget our letter to Santa!

Thank You

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice.
~Meister Eckhart
So, here it is, THANK YOU...
Thank you for it ALL Lord!
May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving and don't forget to just say 'thank you'.

My Greatest Blessing

A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart.
~ Author Unknown



I thank God daily for my greatest blessing, Jayda. I can only hope that I never let Him down and waste a single second with her.

Words to Live By...

Found this on one of my facebook friend's page... I LOVED it! Makes so much sense.
Written By Regina Brett, 90 years old, of The Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.. It is the most-requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone...
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and
parents will. Stay in touch
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.
35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36.. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood..
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time.. You already have all you need.
42. The best is yet to come.
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
