Merry Christmas!



I love Christmas so much.  My feeling is that life is generally really difficult and anything that can bring some magic to our world should be embraced.
Here's my girls being silly after they decorated the tree. 
My oldest decorating the tree.
My youngest puts on the star.

Life is such a struggle.  It never seems to get easier or better, at least not for me.  I'm glad that for at least the next month, they'll be pretty music on the radio, twinkling lights on the houses and people trying to treat one another the way we should.  I love all the magic and promise the idea of Christmas brings.

I am so with you on this! I LOVE this time of year! and I wish people's compassion for others during this magical time would spill over to the other 11 months! What a nice tree! And your oldest looks a lot like you!

Merry Christmas! I'm going to post my sad photo of my little tree. I took it quick this morning because my cat had already terrorized it twice since I put it up last night.
