My Favorite Time of Year

I think I say that every year.

I mean it.

Not only for the reason for the season, but for the season itself.

I LOVE Christmas time.

I LOVE giving my children gifts, and can hardly wait for them to open them.

Can you tell my love language is gift giving?

Tonight the kids and I wrapped our gifts for our nieces and nephews.

I used my very favorite paper from Target.  (The BEST place on earth.)

When I put the presents under the tree, I started looking more closely at the things on the tree.

I mean, I looked at them when Grace and I were putting the tree up, but I forgot how much I LIKED the things I decorate my tree with.

Some are things I made, and some are treasures I all the shiny brite ornaments I've come across in the last several years.

Then I stepped back and really looked.

There really is nothing more pretty then a tree all lit up in a warm, dim room.

I love Christmas.  Hope you're enjoying the season too.


  1. I agree... nothing like a tree all lit up for the holidays... of course that's why I can see mine from just about every spot in the living room and the dining room ;)


    PS and I think that's is some pretty sharp looking wrapping paper you've got there!

  2. I love your garland. Did you make that? I had some serious luck with finding vintage shiny brights in the last two months. I found a couple of shoe boxes full at different places and paid $6 total for both boxes. Crazy! I've got them spread out all around my living room right now and I think they're one of my favorite things this year. (Can't put them on the tree b/c the cats steal the ornaments off the tree! Rotten cats!)

  3. Love when my tree is all done too! Is that MY present I spy under the tree? I'll try hard to be patient!


Thanks for commenting...I love reading what you all have to say!
