Getting Close to Christmas

I can’t believe it is almost Christmas. I really believed with a scaled down Christmas schedule the season would stretch out and seem forever. Would this be a bad thing? Maybe, but I must admit Christmas this year is much less chaotic and rushed. I’ve enjoyed our decor and simple holiday traditions. Baking sugar cookies was actually a highlight of a day rather than an add-on activity. Shopping from the house from the comfort of my couch was also pretty great. I did miss the last week of school flurry of business as we pivoted to virtual school temporarily, but delivering gifts to my students’ homes was delightful…in a safe distant masked way.

Enjoy some Christmas cheer from my home to yours!

Lovely cross-stitch from my mom

Another beautiful tree!
We could all use some Hope and Joy right now
And of course, Peace on Earth
Gingerbread makes the season yummy!
