My goal for December is to round up all of the Christmas fun I can find, wrangle, or create. I do not say no to an invitation, and I try to do a lot of inviting to others too.
Luckily, I have a couple of partners in my quest for holly jolly joy.
We gathered up all the sisses and a buddy for a night out to see Beauty and the Beast at Theatre Lawrence.
And we have non stop craft-a-thons by the Christmas tree or in the cardboard cottage.
And of course, delicious cocoa parties that come afterwards.
The rule around here is "First one up turns on all of the tree lights", so the house always feels festive.
After the holidays end, and the decor comes down, I think it is the lights that I miss the most of all the decorations. Sometimes, I leave some white lights over the windows thru January as a transition to help me survive the end the celebrating.
For now, I'm still revelling in the joy of it all.
And in the cookies. Maybe the only thing better than white twinkle lights throughout the house is decorating and eating sugar cookies.
Especially in good company!
