Happy December 1st!

 Christmas!

“The very word brings joy to our hearts.  No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given - when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.”

~Joan Winmill Brown

Yesterday we made the trip to the Christmas tree farm to cut down our tree. My son was working so it was just my hubby, my daughter, our dog Harley and myself. I look forward to this tradition that we do each year.

We came home and decorated the tree and then my daughter got a little crafty. She made mason jar Christmas globes, gingerbread houses with her boyfriend, and then she made Christmas sugar cookies! I love this time of year!, the house seems to be filled with December magic!
