Christmas Recap and After Christmas Sales

Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and even better I hope you have a few days to catch your breath and relax. We had a wonderful Christmas!

We snapped a quick family photo right after our Christmas Eve service. Of course, everyone wanted to leave, but when you have 1600 people at the service, you’re not going anywhere quick so why not get a photo?

In case, you haven’t seen my whole family, our son Cory is on the far left with his girlfriend, Anna. Then our daughter’s family is on the right of Wayne and I, Courtney, Colt, Claire, and AJ.

Christmas Recap and After Christmas SalesI did not want ANYTHING for Christmas, really I didn’t. Being with my family is my Christmas gift. Our kids surprised us with tickets to see Amy Grant at the Cincinnati Music Hall in February.

We had tickets to see her Christmas show in November, but we didn’t get to go because my mother-in-law passed away. They knew I was disappointed, so they made up for it with tickets to her concert in February. I was thrilled!

We had all my family and Wayne’s brother and his wife over for Christmas dinner yesterday. It was so fun, and the big hit was Colt’s go-kart that we got him for Christmas.

A bunch of us braved the cold weather and went outside to watch the kids ride, and Wayne got his four-wheeler out for the big kids.

This was Claire’s first Christmas, and it was special.

Christmas Recap and After Christmas SalesWhile Christmas is wonderful it’s also a little exhausting so I’m going to do as little as possible today.

Now let’s talk about sales, if you received some Christmas money or just want to grab some winter items, you are in luck. The sales are good!

Here are some of my favorite sales going on right now.

Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale

  1. I dont usually make resolutions as I am sooooo weak willed. However, I would like to loose weight for our daughters wedding in 2019

  2. I don’t necessarily make New Years resolutions but I do love God’s Grace in giving me new beginnings and new opportunities to live a purposeful life in Him. I have things I want to accomplish, like declutter and organize but I’ve learned to take life a day at a time and look for the blessings and opportunities God shows me. Happy New Year Cyndi! Be Blessed!

  3. Cyndi….looking forward to your Blog in 2019, lets see what the “future fashion” holds! Wishing you a Happy New Year🎉🎉

  4. Thank you for your encouraging words and focus on our Savior! I bought the Loft pink sweater. I’ve had so many compliments. I love it!!
