Day 10 - Little Signs of Christmas
Oh, there have been rumblings of Christmas decorating going on, but nothing serious yet. I am holding off until this next weekend--I don't want to be burned out on the tree by the time Christmas comes around. But Sabrina was eager to start decorating so we pulled her cheesy and magical ceramic Christmas tree out of the attic, together with some snowglobes.
She slept with the tree lit up all night as a kind of holiday night light. I have to say it is pretty magical and cozy! Patrick got it last year because he remembered having one like it growing up, and when he brought it home I instantly remembered also having something similar in our home when I was little. Like no other time of year, during the Christmas season I take such joy in just recreating my childhood, for my children and for myself.
