The Season

The season.  December.  Winter.  Christmas.  The Santa mugs are on the kitchen window sill.

Pretty stained glass wreaths suspend in front of windows.

Vintage ornaments fill glass jars.

And our tree is trimmed with handmade ornaments from years past.

Our house is warm and cozy.  The weather cold.  The date on the calender approaching school break. Each of these things is a favorite.  I usher in December with glee.

As I washed dishes the other night and looked up to notice these two outside doing a synchronized dance,  December was completely summarized in that moment.

Life is good indeed! Christmas break is so nice to take a break from the daily homework and hussle of life going by so quickly.

I love seeing your reflection in the window while to take the pic of the girls! Can't believe they are out there in capris! It's 21 outside! Oh..and we had about 9" of snow!!;P

Tell the girls we want to see the dance!

The Santa mugs are so cute!!! I have seen some of them, but not all.
The girls outside dancing made me smile. It is so wonderful to see them together dancing.
December is here.
Enjoy all those favorites.

Lovely as always.

I'm still trying to re-home a snowman teapot to you. ;) The one that scares the girl in this house. lol

Dancing viewed through a window, wonderful.

Seeing a tree decorated with memories, wonderful too.

May the rest of the month be just as good as these past few days/weeks.

You know how people have those calendars with inspirational uplifting phrases on them for each day? Well that's what your blog posts are for me. You just lifted my spirits. December is a rough month for me and you just made today a lot better.

such great moments. I have a huge collection of santa mugs and yours are lovely! Mine always makes me smile. I even have the one from when I was a little girl that my mom saved for me.

Must bring a smile to your face to see your girls do stuff like that. My kids haven't quite gotten to that point where they can do stuff together and one of them, the youngest, not get hurt. Their game last night was "tackle". It didn't end well.
