Snippets of Holiday Magic - December 8

IMG_8869 When I saw this little marquess Christmas tree I couldn't resist it. I had no idea where I was going to put it, but bought it anyways. Now there's a little Christmas cheer in our bedroom and I love it!

I might be tempted to keep it out year round.

Snippets of Holiday Magic - December 7

IMG_8821 Glue splattered, red pompom nose, googly eyes and crooked antlers. These are the best ornaments filled with childhood memories. How I wish I could go back to when they were little.

Snippets of Holiday Magic - December 6

On a cold, rainy day there's no better place to be than in front of the Christmas tree, knitting my first sweater. I'm so excited, it's actually looking like a sweater.

Snippets of Holiday Magic - December 5

IMG_8793 Driving home from Girl Scouts tonight, I did a slow drive around our neighborhood. Christmas lights sparkled on every street. I drove past a house where the young mother passed away this summer from cancer, leaving behind 3 little ones and a husband. There were no Christmas lights. My heart went out to them. The first Christmas without her.

I pulled up to our house, all aglow and thanked God for life and the loved ones I still have with me, and prayed for the little family missing theirs.
