Holiday Snapshot #9 ::

The holidays seemed to go by in a blur --
and when life moves at that pace --
it's hard to slow things down --
and hold on to the memories we are making.

Children giggling as they play 'Santa's Helpers' with Papa Bill
The orange & spice scent of wassail
Stars scattered across a cold black sky
Christmas Eve Service
All these things I will treasure and hold in my heart

Holiday Snapshot #8 :: Something white

If the local 'weather-wizards' are correct -- looks like it will be a White Christmas. 
Santa and his reindeer will feel right at home !

Holiday Snapshot #7 - Little Mama

When my daughter was small, my Dad made her this wooden highchair for Christmas.
And, now --  it's being used by a second generation, Little Mama to feed her hungry baby.
My Dad would have loved this !

Holiday Snapshot #6 - Santa Knows

What my grandson wants for Christmas.
Posted (literally on Post-it Notes) above his bunk bed. 
Each square represents something he wants for Christmas.
But, the message is in code. 
A code that only Santa can read. 
Sounds like a true believer to me !!

Holiday Snapshot # 4 - Cold & Colorful

It was 17 degrees when I left my house this morning. 
When I stepped outside into the cold  -- this took my breath away. 

Even the heavens are decorated for the season !
