Christmas Time is Here


I had so many things I wanted to share with you this holiday season: decorations, crafts, recipes. A 6 day trip to Missouri to visit my Dad made the season pass much too quickly. I can't believe today is Christmas Eve. I wish I could stretch the season out a bit longer. But since that's not possible I am just going to enjoy every bit of what's left. The gifts are all bought. The errands are all run. The snow is on the way. This is my favorite part. I'm going to spend the next 24 hours watching Christmas movies, knitting, reading, playing games and generally enjoying my family.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Thank you for sharing the ups and downs of my life with me this past year. It has meant so much to me.

  1. The season got away from me too. I just don't know what happens to all the hours in each and every day. It seems like I blink and they are gone.

    Happy belated! I can honestly tell you that turning 40 was fantastic for me. I felt like I grew up and really started to find the me I was meant to be. It's only gotten better and I'll be 45 in February. :)

    Merry Christmas to you and yours. All the best for the New Year. Tammy

    Dang, is your family ever good lookin.
    I hope you're getting your White Christmas. (I checked your forecast, but NOAA didn't go so far as to say "it's snowing at the Cottage in the Village."

    Stay cozy and enjoy the rest of your day!
