Just the two..

The day after Christmas, we took some time to relax and enjoy our time just being home. My oldest daughter and my husband decided to build a robot.-A rather cool box robot.
 Just the two..sitting together, being hands-on. I sat nearby.-Taking pictures and listening in on their conversation. They needed this time. Just the two, together. I enjoyed watching the two of them work together as a team.-Building, brainstorming and enjoying time together. I honestly enjoy these simple moments in life. It was a simple, relaxing day at home.

Merry and well.


“Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart...filled it, too, with melody that would last forever.” 
― Bess Streeter AldrichSong of Years













I haven't been around much. But I can say- we're all doing well.  I'm sure I've overloaded on sweets and I've listened to way too much Christmas music. And I'm sure I have enjoyed way too many of my favorite Christmas movies. -One thing I'm certain of,- I've enjoyed every minute of it. We're all cheerful and filled with so much joy. It's all so very special to us. And I hope the same goes for all of you. 
Sending warm wishes to all this Christmas.

Home. -Lately...














At home, we're all enjoying this beautiful holiday season.
I've been enjoying some time in the kitchen baking a few goodies. I normally have our kitchen radio on while I prepare meals. Sometimes I  take this time to reflect on a few  things. - Happy thoughts.
I recently purchased an oil to use in my warmer. - A mixture of nutmeg, orange and cinnamon fill the air. - It's a very calm and refreshing scent.

I enjoy this time at home. We recently finished our Christmas shopping and oh my! - I'm really considering doing most of my Christmas shopping online next year. Stores were packed and people are just so rude this time of year.

Our oldest daughter has enjoyed her  time playing tea time and putting together most of her puzzles.
She's also been enjoying her time with her baby sister. I catch her giving her sister gentle kisses and holding her hand while she sings her a sweet song. - I absolutely love these moments.

In the evening we turn on our Christmas lights and gather around our tree. -This is a time that we sit and read a few Christmas stories. -Do  you have any favorite Christmas stories you and your family read together?  We recently read, One Night in Bethlehem and Llama Llama holiday drama.

The weather has been shifting. This week it has been a bit warmer out. - I'm thankful. I hear we're going to get a winter storm pass through sometime soon. So I'll enjoy this warmer weather while I can.

How are you spending your time this holiday season?
