Can you feel it?! The excitement is brimming! It's a busy fun time - a red, green, white, and sometimes silver - time, a bursting into Christmas Song at any random moment time. I feel the child inside me giggling, enjoying the suspense like a well placed pregnant pause, so full of anticipation. Many of my Christmas wishes have come true - family is here or on their way, gingerbread messes have been made, fits have been had, and the ground is laden with fluffy sparkling snow!
Making candy with my mother and grandmother until we all got tummy aches,
shopping and crafting gifts with my mother-in-law, wrapping presents...Christmas seems to be the only time I can keep from spilling the beans - and it is an odd addicting mix of excruciating excitement to patiently wait for the day when we can shred all that pretty paper and put bows on our pets.
The Christmas tree. A plastic monstrosity; a relic covered in sweet vintage thrift store finds, too many lights, and some of my favorite local artist ornaments.
|Star thing, all time favorite, blazing in it's glory near the top of the tree. Thrift Store Score.|
The Season has kept me busy; when I get a chance to go back to the Nampa location I will post more photos for your viewing pleasure :)
