The Magic of Christmas

Awww, the Magic of Christmas does something to the soul, especially when one has young children this time of year. My oldest is just captivated by everything he sees. This is my favorite year with him for sure!

My tree is adorned with so many Christopher Radko ornaments, too many to count, but this very simple silver bulb with a small white deer stands out amongst them all. It is my favorite ornament. This bulb hung on my grandmother, Honey's tree, which means my mother hung it it too as a little girl. It is surprising it lasted this long because my mother did not care for antiques or anything old. I of course love everything old. So funny how opposite we were. When my mother was a little girl, she went to bed with nothing Christmas and woke up to a fully decorated tree and very few handmade presents. Her mother must had to work very hard all night and through the weeks before to sew and make all their presents. She was quite a talented lady and made everything they ate and wore.

If you haven't joined Pinterest, what are you waiting on? I cannot tell you enough about this site! Seriously, every party or shower or school function I have attended within the past few months as been greatly enriched thanks to Pinterest! What do I mean? Well, it seems everything I go to now has the yummiest desserts or the most beautiful crafts because everyone is Pinning. Just the other night I was at a Christmas party with such delicious food. Where did the recipes come from? Pinterest of course!
