Its starting to look like Christmas in these parts. The last of the Fall decor has made its way back to storage and the rotten pumpkins from the front yard have been thrown in the garbage. The orange and brown and wheat and gourds have been exchanged for red and garland and Christmas lights.
I love this time of year. If Fall didn't bring cozy feelings then this season will with cool nights and cocoa. Christmas movies and traditions. Last night I found myself sitting with my mug of cocoa staring at the tree.
I wanted a real tree this year. I decided to go with a miniature version. I love it. It goes perfect with a good book.
Cinderella is also enjoying the season. We have found that she loves candy canes. I came home from work to find that she had eaten three. The only part left were the wrappers and some broken pieces. If you look closely you can see the crazy glint in her eyes from all the sugar!
I'm looking forward to old traditions and starting new ones in our first home. What special traditions does your family enjoy this season? I would love to hear about them!
Excuse me while I go watch the tree lighting from Rockefeller Center on TV. My cocoa is getting cold...
