Hello there!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, bet it does at your house too! The temperatures have cooled down some and there is less humidity here, an occasional day where we must wear shoes other than flip flops.

Sunshine and Lollipop were happy to see little Calvin Houdini in October when he visited with Mommy and Daddy from Michigan.

 Calvin drove his Uncle Chris's boat  and played on an island in the river with his cousins Sunshine and Lollipop!
What a fun time and we attended a beautiful wedding in downtown Miami to celebrate the marriage of our friend's daughter while they were here. Hubs and I just celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary too.

And now the Christmas season is upon us.  A wonderful time of the year for those who celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The miracle of God coming to Earth in the form of a child, for us. (I love that song: Mary Did You Know?).   Our church hosts a celebration for three nights each year with a Live Nativity. People love to walk through the Living Nativity and see  the story of Christ's birth come to life! It seems each year it draws more people to hear about His birth and I feel privileged to be a part of this event in the Angel choir. Now don't laugh. It's the only time I'm allowed to wear a halo <wink>.  This year I'm going to try to remember to take some photos.

The Grands are so excited this year about decorating.....their house looks like an explosion of Santa's workshop! There are decorations everywhere but the most special decorations are those they make themselves.  Precious little hands making ornaments for the tree, they delight in making them as glittery and sparkling as possible!  I love watching them color and draw and make stuff, it is the highlight of my week.It is challenging too as you know if you have little ones, there are hands going in so many directions and glitter flying through the air, glue everywhere....I wouldn't change it for a moment. SPARKLE ON!

If you have little people in your house you might like to click on Pinterest for ideas to keep them busy.  Check out my Christmas Kiddie board and also Kiddie Crafts.  There's lots of entertaining ideas and such fun to be had by little ones and big ones as well.  I'm happiest when there is paint, glitter and glue involved in any project.

Have a great week!

Glitter on!
