Today was a good day, in preparing for Christmas. I made Chex Mix and my all time favorite, fudge. I did get a little sad though as I always wish I could turn around and my girls would be small again and be begging to lick the bowl. They are busy making their own memories and are so grown but they will always be little in my mind.
I received a fabulous post card from my online friend, Veronica Gager, today. She is on vacation with her dear husband in California. I am jealous, she is in warm weather, and she got to shop at Dick Blick’s. How cool would that be. I have also been able to open a few presents, one each day from a swap on papertraders (see link). It is such a fun group to belong to. It helps calm my enthusiasm for wanting Christmas to hurry up and come for all the excited children opening their presents and all the yummy food. It’s my favorite holiday.
