spt - my holiday is filled with joy



Christmas trees make me happy.



in the past week, i have:

performed with my vocal group (Without A Net) on live local television;
attended matty's company Christmas party;
rode on the cub scout float in the first of two parades;
had lunch with my dad and two sisters to plan "writing" a musical;
attended my own company party;
heard a high school Christmas concert;
and, yes, i've run out of gas.

it seems like a lot, but now we have 2/3rds of our holiday commitments behind us.

tonight, we will enJOY a quiet evening at home as we put the ornaments on our own tree... after which, i will curl up in my pyjayzees and finish up my Christmas cards.

you?

You live a full life, Lelly, my dear. And that is definitely something to enJOY!

Kelly said...

The beginning of the month really packs it in, but having a smooth second half is almost worth it. Rode on the Cub float! Wow! THAT is Joy!

carlo said...

writing a musical? performing on live tv? you are a star!

on top of all of the other stuff, you are my inspiration!

we are gearing up for serious holiday hoopla over here!

concert last night, scott's bday on wed, cass concert on thurs, and little gathering this weekend. then the weekend road trips begin.

but still, JOY!

oh ps. I added a link without changing the address. Can you delete it so I can try again?

Kelly said...

Well, I'm glad for you that 2/3 of your holiday events are over, maybe the closer to Christmas the more peaceful it will get?

I think there should be video of you performing live on TV -- how cool is that?

Missy :o) said...

sounds like you are having a wonderful season. tonight might be kinda quiet for us, too. love your picture today! :o) merry christmas!

Liz said...

What a great reflection of JOY. I love having plans for nights like tonight.

Sarah said...

You have been busy. It must be a nice feeling to finally have a quiet evening at home. I have had relatively few activities so far, but next week will be a challenge. But a good one. Have fun decorating your tree.

Ann said...

I'm wondering if you constantly wake in the night wondering if you missed something you were suppose to do that day. It must be so hard to keep track!

Good to hear that you are going to relax tonight.

Live performance....is there a place to view this? I would love to hear you sing.
Happy Tuesday!

I can actually hear you say the way you spelled PJ's! I still have a lot to do to be done with engagements and such - but it's all in fun - or it shouldn't be done - right?! Enjoy your quietness!

Crystal said...

OH BUSY LELLY!!!

Glad you're taking some time out of your hectic schedule to enJOY yourself.

TinaAKAPeachez said...

Wow - what a busy week you have had. I am still trying to get myself into the Christmas spirit and you are just full of it! Mind sending some my way?

Alisha said...

So much fun stuff!

I love your clever self-portrait. You never cease to amaze me with your clever-ity. (I think I made that word up just now.)

Neighbor Jane Payne said...

What fun! From the parties to the planning to the pjayzees.

I love your topics this month. Such a great idea to help us capture specific moments.

Hannah said...

So fun Lelly! I wish we had more going on in the first weeks of the month instead of all the week before Christmas!

Love seeing you in that ornament!

michelle said...

Ooh! I wish I could see your TV performance!

Singing with a group would be the only thing that would improve my holiday...

Hooray for relaxing at home, too.

Chris said...

Sounds great and busy, but to have that all done at this early of a dates, fabulous! An evening of decorating and PJ's sounds delightful. Enjoy some down time for me, alas I have meetings, my down time will soon come. :-)

Aranne and Dan said...

I thought my December was busy... Make sure you have some time to enjoy yourself!

Jeanette said...

I am so jealous of your talents. Writing a musical? How cool is that?

Janiece said...

WOW!!!
What a full holiday you have!

Katie A. said...

Wow, you are busy! I'm glad that you've gotten 2/3 of it done, and in only 1/3 of a month! And singing on TV? Cool, I would have loved to hear it.

Alisa said...

Busy, busy, busy!
I can't wait to hear more about your musical!
Hope your relaxing evening went as planed.

Rachael said...

Its crazy how busy the first 3 weeks of December get! Tonight kicked off my busy time! Looking forward to it but also looking forward for it to be over with!
I love the tree lights on with all other lights off-and the smell of a real Christmas Tree! That is enJOYment!

Jill said...

You've had a super busy and festive week eh? It's nice that 2/3 of your commitments are behind you so you can soak up the relaxing parts of the season.

crystal said...

i LOVE that I can see you in that ornament! This is my favorite spt to date.

crystal said...

Hey--where's the youtube video of you on live tv???

Natasha said...

enJOY the rest of December!

Becky said...

What a busy, happy week! I hope that the rest of your month is just as joyful :) Merry Christmas!

mommy nurse said...

Christmas cards and actually decorate the tree...things to come for me! Busy Busy Busy!

Rhonda said...

I am so trying to keep it VERY simple. We have to, after tuition and the wedding. But, it's all good as it is helping us all to focus on the beauty of Christmas...

Tonight we worked on our Christmas cards too.

Amanda :-) said...

Thank you to Jack, love Erin

Elizabeth said...

Your blog is full of Holiday Cheer too. What a cute banner.

Amanda :-) said...

Stop it, I just read this (Erin waded in on me the other day for that reply above). A musical?? How brilliant would that be. What on EARTH is it about? I just wouldn't have a clue what to base a musical on - oh, hang on, no...the wonderful world of blogging, perhaps? I'd probably end up doing something awful, like that 'Springtime for Hitler' song in The Producers :-/

I'm glad you got snuggled up in your jim-jams and twiddled with the tree. I've just had a big, hot coffee and a mince pie in front of mine. Nice!

Ive admired SPT from a far and now I'm jumoing on ship!

Good job stopping to enjoy a quiet moment.
