Every Year...

I promise myself and my family that THIS will be the Christmas where we do minimal visiting, stay home lots and just regroup and connect with the six of us.  Alas, we get notices for dance recitals, family functions, last minute haircuts, and before I know it, the calendar is full of events and appointments.

This year was the first time I didn't feeling doing more than setting up the Christmas tree.  My heart just wasn't into the holiday spirit.  I was reminded that we were going to be hosting at least two Christmas functions and that it would be a good idea to ensure the house was all decked out for the season.  And so I did.  I put on Boney M Christmas and began to pull out all the decorations that stay hidden for 11 months of the year.  The next day, Arianna and I whipped up a batch of shortbread... the cookie that is reserved for Christmas.  It IS beginning to look like Christmas here and slowly my heart is getting into it as well.

  1. Your tree looks great! I have had a hard time getting into the Christmas Spirit this year, too. I am trying for the kids, but something is off with me this year.

    Merry Christmas, Stephanie and Family
