A Few of My Favorite Things

Christmas was wonderful! It was busy but not stressful. The weather was good for traveling. There were fun chaotic family gatherings and quiet moments for reflection. And now it is done for another year. But I take away some special memories.

Like Tyler being Santa for the first time at my Mom's, Haggis that nobody wanted, "Who's Your Daddy?", playing Euchre, the re-gifted sweater and the grey sock hat. (Don't ask!)

I also received some very special gifts and I realize the thought that went into them. Each gift was from the heart, knowing it would be perfect for me. I am grateful for each one and I thought I would share a few of them with you.

:: a hand-painted snowman plate from my 11-year-old niece, Hannah ::

:: hand-made cards from Carolyn ::

:: the perfect gift from my hubby - spa gift certificates! ::

:: the Planet Earth series from my boys ::

:: cozy jammies from my nephew, Patrick ::

:: a journal from my sister-in-law ::

:: an exquisite hand-painted, glass ornament from my Mom ::

Each gift specially chosen. Lovingly given. Warmly received. True treasures.

"It isn't the size of the gift that matters, but the size of the heart that gives it."

I am grateful ~
