Love and Light

Are you in the thick of the holiday rush? In the last minute scramble to  cross off to-do lists? On a cleaning frenzy right before the guests arrive?

I love this time of year. Just think, in a couple of days, the countdown to Christmas will reset to 365 days. Which means if it’s only a couple of days…

It’s almost Christmas!

This week has actually been a relaxing one for us. Our oven is still broken and believe it or not, that’s been quite a gift. Not being able to bake freed up tons of time.

Instead of having my cookbooks sprawled about, we made our usual peanut butter balls, but this time we fancied them up with chocolate chips and cake decorations. They are sooooo cute!

Wednesday evening, we took a drive. About 15 miles from here is one of the most festive houses I’ve ever seen. They have hundreds of those blow up holiday lights.

Every year since Little Bit was a little bit, we have slowly driven by there. There’s so much for the eyes to take in. Last year, we drove through their circle driveway and this time, we parked and got out.

Talk about some fun! We were both smiling from ear to ear. Almost every character you can think of was there including Mickey, Rudolph, Hello Kitty, Santa, Hocas Pocas, Snoopy, and more. Can you imagine being a kid there?

They also had lights that moved about and looked like glitter on the ground. Oh my, we loved running and dancing in them! What wonderful memories we made!

I hope that whatever you do this weekend fills your heart with joy, love and light. 

Merry Christmas.

    I will savor the fine dining at a truck stop so another driver can stay home with his kids. At least I have my kid Vinny with me!

      Hello sweetheart!! Thank you so much! It’s going well so far. Came to my parent’s yesterday and had a houseful of laughter, game playing, food, and present opening last night. 🎄🎄 Santa will arrive this evening and there will be 3 happy lil kiddos tomorrow morning.

    I love looking at the Christmas lights and decorations too! We have an entire street near our house that is decorated, called “Candy Cane Lane” and we make sure we visit every year. Happy Holidays!
