Oh Christmas

You make me happy.

the glowing and glittery lights

the music

the feelings of goodwill and charity

the traditions

the excitement

the secrets

the kid-made ornaments

the pretty paper

the smiling people

the flavors

the smells

the hot cocoa

the nativities

the true meaning

the extra happiness floating around

the hoodlums who make it even more fun

the surprises

the new ornaments (my hubby surprised me with a sock monkey ornament for my birthday)

Granted I do get a little overwhelmed with the activities and hustle and bustle, and it's not quite as magical as when I was a youngster (because I'm the mom now and really... when is anything magical when you're the mom), but I do love it...and I will miss it when it's over.


  1. Oh, Merry Christmas, Lou! I just got your Christmas card in the mail and it is LOVELY! What fun. :)

    Your fireplace is positively enchanting. I just want to snuggle up next to it with a puffy blanket and pillow and a good book...

    I love your sock monkey ornament. Did L crochet it for you? He seems the domestic type. ;)

  2. Your house looks wonderful. Merry Christmas!
    P.S. Love the sock monkey.

  3. Your house looks so beautiful all decorated! I hope you guys have a very Merry Christmas!

  4. I miss your house and the Arizona sun. I'm homesick.
