in the midst of it all

The day after Thanksgiving, I cranked up some holiday classics, made a batch of hot cocoa and then got to work blinging out our house. Norbert handled all the outdoor decorating while I, and two monkeys, tackled the inside.

Truly, the best part of holidays, for me, is sharing them with those two boys.
I definitely do enjoy having our house decorated, but I almost feel a sense of responsibility to provide that environment for them. 

We are creating memories.
Honoring traditions.

And I am definitely making a concerted effort this year, even in the midst of all of this Christmas chaos, to slow down, be attentive and enjoy.
