And so it begins.......

Last night we had our first 'family Christmas' Adventure -- we went to see Santa and have dinner out.  The lil one was so excited she was (again) literally vibrating!!  She apparently was very clear with Santa about what she wanted --- 4 things -- a fuzzy sweater (something to wear) - a cross stitch set for beginners (something to do) - a cook book (something to read) and a camera (something she really really wants) 
Watching her sit on Santa's knee talking -- seeing the awe in her face just made my heart melt - such a special memory.

About a month ago -- I was at a meeting at the lil one's school and the principal asked if I would come in and do story telling on the last day of school before the Christmas break.  OF COURSE !  I said yes........ story telling is one of my most favourite things to do with kiddies.  The principal ok'd  The Grinch (these days you don't know what's politically correct anymore - ya know?!)  The only glitch was the timing -- it got changed 3 times (the last day of school is a busy day!!)  we went from a civilized time of 11:30 to 8:45.  Thank god I am a morning person.  

The lil one told anyone who would listen that S was coming to school to tell stories.  Her class was the first class and she was vibrating again (grinning) and I got a BIG tight hug as she walked into the story telling area.  It was amazing - honestly!!  The kids were all over me in no time -- hugging me and touching me and talking my ear off.  It took a little while to get them all settled down so I could do the story telling.
Honestly when I left the school I was walking on air.  Story Telling is truthfully my first love.

Life is good when Christmas is close!


  1. It is such a magical time of year! :-) Enjoy Christmas with your family!

  2. Aww, how sweet, and absolutely beautiful for both you and lil one. I love her Christmas wish list to Santa. Bet she finds most of those in her stocking Christmas morning:)
