A jolly good time.

Lately, we've been having a jolly good time! There has been baking, gift wrapping, board games, Christmas music and twinkling lights everywhere. I love this time of the year. Our home smells of sweet, warm scents. Our Christmas lights come on every evening around five. We recently picked up our Starbucks Holiday blend. My husband makes a fine cup of coffee. Some of our selected Christmas music brings back a few childhood memories. One song in particular is, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I have a picture of me from when I was younger; I performed this song in Germany and wore the the antlers and had a little red nose. I wasn't quite a wee one, but I was in elementary school at the time. Our oldest daughter loves asking questions about her daddy and I. She normally asks questions about our childhood. Growing up my mother never wrapped our Christmas gifts. It wasn't such a big deal, but now that I am older and have children of my own, I have started wrapping their gifts. I absolutely love watching them unwrap their presents. It is such a precious time and I enjoy this so much. We'll be baking some gingerbread cookies this weekend. We have some red, blue, white and a few other frosting choices. The weather has been a bit flaky. It snowed the other day. Today our high is 56. The sun is out and there is a slight breeze.  Our oldest has been enjoying a few hands on projects. She recently put together a doorbell. She loves it and her little sister uses it to wake her in the morning. It is pretty darn cute!  It has definitely been a jolly good time over here. I hope the same for all my lovely readers. 
May you all stay warm and enjoy this beautiful holiday season. 💗
