The lil one has a PA day today (no school).  She should have been with Mom -- but as we all know -- Mom is away on a 3 week holiday.  

Back in the day when my girls were little -- we did gobs of Christmas stuff in the weeks leading up to Christmas -- everything from making presents for the family - to making a Gingerbread House (or village another year or a train another year) - to making decorations for 'mom's' themed Christmases....... 

Then the grandbabies came along -- and one Saturday in December they would come to Granny's house to help decorate my house (while Mom and Dad got one free day to do their Christmas shopping).  We made Gingerbread houses -- and decorations -- and some years presents for Mom and Dad. I hoped then that we were making wonderful Christmas memories.

Those days were gone... and I thought my days of making memories with lil ones was over.  

Yeah well who knew??!!

So this morning the lil one and I started a Christmas gift for Daddy -- and this afternoon we're gonna do some baking (not necessarily for Christmas but testing a recipe that MIGHT be on the Christmas menu)

Tonight the city is having a Tree Lighting party downtown and we are gonna go.  I have NEVER been to a tree lighting party and am excited to go....... 

Just goes to show you -- you're never too old to make new memories -- and that is a very good thing!


  1. So sweet! Love making memories like that. Have fun!

  2. Hope you have lots of fun today.
    love Jan, xx

  3. all the best with the new recipe! starting a new tradition can be very uplifting!
