Christmas Time

There are lots of things I love about Christmas:
  • My mother's beautifully decorated home.
  • 125 baubles on a Christmas tree.
  • Days off of work.
  • Delicious food.
  • Listening to my dad read "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" complete with delightfully awkward Freudian slips.
  • Reading the story about the Christmas bells.
  • Reading Luke 2.
  • Singing Christmas carols around the piano, even if I don't play as well as my sisters.
  • Giving gifts.
  • Wrapping presents and tying bows.
  • Talking to nieces and nephews about what Santa brought them.
  • Contemplating the numerous and varied blessings I have, the greatest of which is the birth, life, atonement, and resurrection of the Savior.
Yep, there's lots I love about Christmas. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Also? Santa brought me these this year.

I'm so glad you got your lovely dishes. I saw some damask dishes at Target today in the 50% off Christmas section, and I thought of you and how you might want to venture that 30 min. to your Target to buy some lovely dishes at a discounted price. I hope you had a very merry Christmas!
