Festive Bits

I am still enjoying the holiday memories...

Sweet notes written by tiny hands.

Candy within arm's reach.

Looks of anticipation.

A brand new doll.

Santa's cookies fresh from the oven.

That "can't wait until morning" feeling.

A special picture for the workshop up north.

A thank you note from someone special.

If you look close you can see a piece of his snowy beard...evidence that Santa did indeed make a stop at our house.

Mounds of paper wrappings.

Sorry, landfill.





More play.

A happy little girl.

A happy little boy.

It's bittersweet:

Tomorrow the decorations will be packed away. The tree carcass will be carted off. The pine needles swept from the floor.

But the magic will return again...

...next year.
