Comfort and Joy

Home Sweet Home.

The tree is still up. I plugged in every light this evening, inside and out.
We are awaiting our first winter storm, with anticipation and excitement.

Little winter friends sit all around the house, we've been waiting for it to feel like winter.

My house has this warm glow. It's all sweet and shiny.
On Saturday, most of  the decorations will come down, as is the new year's tradition. But tonight, I'm savoring this bit of holiday that is left at our house.

It's been a week to remember. Healthy kids, good weather for travel, lots of good times with family to cast a magical haze over this holiday.

Legos. American Girl. G.I. Joes. And fairies.

Gratitude. Peace. Love. Joy. And Hope.

Happy New Year.

I love the twinkle of the tree and mantle and all the holiday decorations. Your house does look warm and cozy.

Sounds like it was a lovely Christmas. My girls are so frustrated by our lack of snow...hope you guys get enough to play.

Have a wonderful New Year!
