You know it's December when....
~My grandparent's antique Christmas decorations sit on my coffee table.~
~The Festival of Trees comes to town and ice sculptures line the walkways.~
~My boys spend hours playing games they haven't played all year.~
My puddle jumping boots sit forgotten on my deck,
filled with frozen puddle water and wondering why they weren't properly put away.
~Our Nativity Set sits on my window sill.~
Kids offer to bake and use ingredients not normally used any other time of the year.
~Hot apple cider with special (
spiced rum) ingredients.~
I walk around with tape in my hair from wrestling with the
wrapping paper and tape dispenser.
Hearing the annoying squeak from this plastic santa -
that I used to run around with and squeak when I was a kid.
Moments just sitting enjoying the quiet and lights,
being thankful that the busy-ness of fall/winter activities has come to an
end for a few weeks.
Wishing you all a wonderful first "December Weekend"!
