Christmas 2011 was extremely exciting for me.
This was the first year that my son had any clue what was going on, so that was extremely exciting.

My husband rocks and I got a new camera, computer, and other awesome gadget!

Today was very frustrating to me.
I won’t go into many details.
All I will say is this: People should be more thankful!
No matter your situation, there is always something to be thankful for.
It saddens me to see that this is the world my son will grow up in.
In light of this, I have decided to start a new project.
I want to make a difference and make the world a happier place!
As I’m sure you have read before, Beautiful Imperfection is my mommy blog.
Its kind of cute too (I’m proud of it)
Here, I am going to start a challenge. A challenge to be a positive inspiration to people.
To encourage others to be happier.
To encourage others to look around them and see what they have to be thankful for.
I will share with you when the details are complete.
Now for some fun!
I have decided to follow in an old family tradition with NighLon.
In my family, my family left the Christmas Tree up until January 2, every year.
This was to bring something good from the old year into the new year.
Following in this tradition, I am going to keep the blog kit giveaway going until January 3rd.
Just follow the requirements HERE by January 3rd, and you will receive a free custom blog kit!
On to the

Steph is inspiring!
Her blog is so happy.
I love her bucket list.
Of course, I love lists, and she has a lot of them.
In fact; she shared one today, and I am going to pass it along!
I was 8, my dad’s friend told me.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
With very special ornaments. They all have a story.
12. Can you ice skate?
I am entirely too clumsy for that! I like to watch people ice skate though!
14. What’s the most important thing about the holidays for you?
Being surrounded by those I love, teaching my son the real reason for Christmas, and helping others.
15. What is your favorite holiday dessert?
RED VELVET CAKE
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Special coffee and everyone cooking together.
The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus and A Christmas Story
21. Saddest Christmas song?
I discovered something today.
It may just be the best thing since Twitter!
I had heard of triberr.com before, but really hadn’t given it much thought.
(enter the gets distracted by shiny things side of me)
Earlier today, I was playing on Klout, and ended up on triberr.com.
I have no idea how I got there, just that a lot of clicks were involved!
I start looking into it, and I am totally dumbfounded. It seems absolutely amazing.
Basically, it is a community where bloggers support and encourage eachother.
Triberr in their own words:
“Triberr is a blogging community that solves the number one problem that bloggers have. We do that by allowing small and medium size bloggers to come together and let them tap into each other’s audiences automagically.”
Why didn’t I think of this?
OH yeah, I’m distracted by shiny things.
Anyway. I try to sign up and guess what….
I have to have an invite code!
So to sum up this post:
If anyone has an invite for me, please feel free to share!
Here is a Christmas frame for you!
Just right click and save. If you enjoy or need help inserting the pictures, feel free to leave a comment.
I have skipped the blog of the day for a few days because I have something special lined up!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
