Finally it feels like Christmas


Hooray! It's finally starting to feel like Christmas! I was worried there for a little bit--that we'd hit the New Year without it feeling much like Christmas, but then it all hit! Today, I was able to spend some time working on the homemade gift that I'll be giving my Sis, Tammy, for Christmas. The girls in my family are doing a homemade gift exchange this year, so it has been fun thinking about which project to choose, and I am looking forward to seeing what has been created by everyone else! Tonight Brooklynn made her (and Asher's) first ornaments for the tree. I am excited to accumulate all the handmade ornaments made by the kids over the years! I just think that they are precious. She did a great job, and I am amazed at how detailed she is at only two-and-a-half! While Brooklynn finished her ornaments, I baked Pear Crumble, with the Asian Pears that Nathan got from a client. And now the house smells wonderful! On top of the thoughts of gifts, decorating, and baking, we are even getting snow! Although the forecast for this weekend looks wretched in most parts, we'll take it for now. It's not every year that we can celebrate the holidays with snow!

I can't wait to see what everyone creates as well. I am a little late at getting Jeannie's gift in the mail, but it will be something their family can enjoy every Christmas.

I love the idea of letting the little ones create an ornament. My older two always come home from school with oodles of crafts for the home & tree. I should let my little guys have a hand in it too.

Merry Christmas Cassie!

love,
Brittany

It's fun to hear about your festivities. I'm happy you guys have snow, but it does sound a little crazy there. I'm scared for all of you!:) It is crazy here too though. It's been snowing HARD - all day! But, it's beautiful and I LOVE it! I love the ice cicles hanging down from the rooftops and the snow/christmas lights at night. It is a winter wonderland and I love it. And, don't you just think everyone is so friendly and helpful and extra kind this time of year. It's such a great time of year! I hope you have a very safe and merry Christmas. I miss you!

P.S. I hope your handmade gifts are going well. I can't wait to see pictures!

The ornaments turned out so cute. Fun pics too. Hey, BTW, means "By the way", I guess. I don't know where I saw picked that up, but that's what it means. I want to hear about how your handmade gifts turned out, so I'll give you a call soon!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
