Santa is in the Hood ~ 2013

Last night we enjoyed an evening at the neighbors celebrating the holiday season.  The kids were thrilled when Santa arrived!  We had such a wonderful evening visiting and catching up and watching Santa talk with all the kids one on one.  He gave them kuddos, advice, and then they all got a stuffed animal and a gift!

Yesterday, I spent the day frustrated with all on my to do list.  Everywhere I went things were not going my way.  However, last night we started our evening with a program at our church and ended it with a gathering in our neighborhood.  Seeing the joy in our children's faces and catching up with our wonderful neighbors brought my attention back to what really matters this holiday season, the birth of Christ, family, love, and memories!  God Bless all of you!

The Simple Things

I love this Little snow family. Every year when we take the Christmas stuff out I always smile when I unpack these. I placed them behind my sink in my kitchen and smile multiple times during the day when I see them. These were given to me by one of my very best friends from childhood and still today! Mrs. K made these for me a few years back and gave them to me for Christmas. Sometimes in life it's the simple things. I thought this was appropriate for today since we are having  our first snowy day here!
