I can’t believe how fast the holiday season has crept up on me. If it weren’t busy enough this time of year, I am having the interior of my house painted this week. So, at my house it will be a mad scramble to get the tree and decorations up before Christmas day is upon us.
There are so many things I enjoy about the holidays. I always love the opportunity to get the whole family together for a fabulous meal, sharing laughter and stories. Waking up Christmas morning to a fresh blanket of snow on the ground is always the icing on the cake.
My children are teenagers now and I had to laugh, when I asked my sixteen year old daughter what she wants for Christmas she said a Skittle cloud. If you’re not sure what that is, the candy skittles has a commercial where skittles rain out of a cloud (picture below). I guess Santa will have his work cut out for him this year.
For me, the best part is spending time with family and friends. It is a magical time of year, and aside from all the hustle and bustle it is the most exciting and most memorable time of year for me. It is a time of year that memories are made from and hearts are warmed.
From my house to yours, I wish you all a joyfull and memorable holiday season.
