I love this time of year.
I love candy canes.
I love the smell of this tree.
I love that the whole family has "Wii arm". Ouch. As a result of playing too much Wii. A Christmas present from the grandparents.
I love vintage Christmas linens.
And I love these mangy beasts, lounging by the fire.... all day.
I love my new Belgian waffle maker!
I love watching my girls decorate gingerbread cookies.
I loved helping with the children's Christmas program at church.
My main duty was chasing down stray sheep that wanted to play the piano.
And I couldn't get over this little guy. He was precious.
Oh ya, here's something I don't love:
Our car was parked on the street while we were in church last Sunday. They left a note saying that they bumped into our car "Lightly." Oh, at least it was Lightly... That made me laugh. As soon as we walked out to the car and saw this I looked at my husband and started singing, "It's the most wonderful time of the year..." And he chimed right in. Now that's our theme song whenever something unfortunate happens. It cracks me up. My mom called me the other day stressed about something, so I started in, "It's the hap-happiest season of all..." Cheered her right up. And I'm too far away for her to smack with the phone.
On a creative note, I made this last night for Little Sis's Blythe doll.
And look Monica, we also gave her some freckles the other day! That was fun. And speaking of my friend Monica, look what she made for me at the retreat last month. This thing makes me so happy I can't tell you. I love it so.
It's a thing of beauty. Thank you Monica!
It's ok ladies, take a few moments to reflect..... shed a tear..... I understand.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful week full of love and family fun... and maybe some huge waffles. x
