Into the Holiday Spirit

Nativity scene on the reflecting pond at Temple Square

Hi! Just checking in. I've been working hard getting ready for Christmas and enjoying some of our favorite traditions. Last Saturday, we went to see the lights at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. They're so beautiful! By random chance, we walked into the Assembly Hall just in time to hear our very own high school choir perform. It was awesome.

Also saw this bagpipe-playin' Santa:



Haven't done much writing, but that was a conscious choice on my part. Now that my shopping is mostly done, I hope to do a little more writing this week. We'll see how that goes. Writing will become a top priority again after Christmas.

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season also!

* Don't forget, you have until Friday to enter my Fairy Godmother Dilemma Giveaway. Three e-books, plus a bag of candy! *

A bag-playing Santa is pretty cool, I gotta admit! (And that reflection pond picture is GORGEOUS!)

Merry Christmas, Angie!!

We haven't been to Temple Square yet, but I hear it is spectacular this year.

And I agree, the bagpipe Santa is pretty cool!

I have never seen a bagpipe playing santa in all my life...until now. I wonder if there are a lot of bagpipe playing santas in Scottland this time of year. That would be funny. :)

Hooray for the holidays! :o) We went and saw the lights around the Mesa Temple for the first time and they have a similar nativity I just adored. (But no bagpipe Santa though. lol)

I have the same problem--gift buying and making while no writing happened. This week should get better.

Merry Christmas, my friend! :o)
