🎼🎶Put the tree up before my spirit falls again…for we need a little Christmas, right this very minute. 🎄🎶
Today was the first day back to normalcy for us after 5 straight days of Christmas festivities. Don’t get me wrong. I love Christmas. LOVE IT. I love everything about it – twinkle lights, the smell evergreen and cinnamon, pretty wrapping paper, the tinkle of bells, carols everywhere. I even approve of snow around Christmas. I wore flip flops this year, but I still approve of snow. However, 5 days of constant going and doing and seeing lots of people is hard on a 3 year and a 7 month old. (Who am I kidding? It’s hard on a 28 year old too.) So, getting to play dress up with Ellabelle and take a nap with Mattie was very welcomed today.
But as the season goes, I think I need one last little dose of Christmas before I bid farewell to my favorite holiday.
To start – cookie day!
As sad as I am to see the holidays heading out for another year, I’m very much looking forward to 2016. 2015 gave me my Matilda, but it’s been a rough year otherwise. I hope everyone had a great December and has a happy new year! 🎉
