Time to start watching Christmas type movies with a crackling fire, silk nog and hot chocolate, chips and dip. I love digging out my mom's special recipes and making cookies and breads with the boys. Making hand made Christmas gifts for those that are special in our lives, remembering family that are not hear to celebrate with us. Just a time to give special thanks for all the blessings in my life, thank my boys for choosing me as their mom, etc. Can you tell we LOVE Christmas.
We do celebrate Solstice as well, I will blog about those traditions later in another post. This weekend was dedicated to our Christmas tree so I have a few pictures.
This next picture is one Phillip took, from underneath the tree looking up.
