I love this time of year; I am surrounded by things that bring me joy.
Like our tree full of ornaments that hold so many memories of our trips, milestones and special occasions:
Our China Tree which I see when I am cooking:
The girls' stockings:
Joy on the wall:
Cozy winter coats (we had the first snowfall of the season this morning):
Tahlia's reindeer with a paper chain to count down to Christmas:
Christmas cards are starting to arrive:
I get to use the special dishes made by the girls that have been put away since last Christmas:
Ginger bread latte's:
Eggnog in the fridge:
And my trusty little radio playing holiday music in the kitchen:
But this little radio is also able to kill the holiday cheer for me in an instant and that is when that HORRIBLE Christmas Shoes song comes on! It is so depressing...
HATE, HATE, HATE that song! Bah humbug!!!!
