SHS 12/23

Christmas is almost here.

All shopping is done,
all decorating is finished,
most of the presents are wrapped.

Now to relax and enjoy the magic.
Tonight we will be caroling with friends,
and tomorrow he kids open a gift while
we watch The Nativity Story.
I love Christmas traditions.

For now, my Scavenger Hunt for this week....


Not only is my sister's name Joy,
but there is so much joy on their faces.
I love that my kids love their aunt so much.


While I was out for a walk this week,
I found a tree with a lot of tangled branches.


This pretty silver star is my Christmas decoration for the front door.
I like it so much, I think I will keep it up all year.

Guilty Pleasure

I recently discovered this flavor.
Oh My Goodness! It is divine.
If you haven't tried it yet, I highly recommend doing so asap.
And hide it from the kids and husband.
They try to steal it.


This is one of my oldest Christmas ornaments.
I absolutely adore it.
It is always the first ornament I put on my tree each year.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
And don't eat too much.
On second thought, go ahead.
It's Christmas, after all.
You can work it off later.
