Happy Holidays Friends!
I think I can finally say that I have finished decorating for the season although I am sure I will add some touches here and there.
There is something magical about decorating for Christmas.
Retrieving the boxes from the attic, reaching in for old memories and dusting them off to share. And the excitement that fills the children. My favorite part.
The look in their eyes.
The grin on their faces.
This is what is Christmas is about for me.
Sharing memories, creating new ones and embracing time with my family.

This is a special time of the year when I buy candy, but it's only for decoration. I never EVER buy candy. Dark chocolate (70% cocoa or higher) only. And that's for mama :)

Joshua's Manager scene makes me smile everyday.

Um...of course I had to include Star Wars somewhere!!
We have a few ornaments and I thought we could add to this collection every year.

Embrace the season.
Create memories.
Gather them close
close your eyes
and always remember....
