A Very Special Week...

We saw Santa!Miss B was sitting on his lap and all of a sudden
she turns and whispers in his ear. Oh be still my heart.

This week I drove to my daughter's after work ,we went out and about. Miss B played the 1.00 xylophone she bought and we sang Christmas songs. She may not  remember the presents I give her but she will remember that. 

Then I went back on Friday that is when we saw Santa. After Santa my daughter and I attended a holiday play that was so sweet. The one thing I am most proud of is the memories we gave our daughter. I am happy to keep making more with B.
We are in the deep freeze and waiting for a good size snow storm to come in tonight into Monday.
"There are winter mornings when the cold without only adds to the warmth within, and the more it snows the harder it blows, brighter the fires blaze.""
Emily Dickinson

And yes I am still hooking. I finished the tree skirt and because my hand stitching is not great I will not be showing it, but my daughter loves it.

So I am all snuggled in, the wood stove is humming and we are very toasty. 
I hope you are enjoying the season I am trying to spread the joy.I am baking for cookie walks, and the highway department those poor workers are under appreciated.
I am buying coffee for the next
   person in line and I am trying to keep a smile on my face even in the dreaded grocery store.
when all the aloud the wind doth blow, and coughing drowns the parson's saw, and birds sit brooding in the snow, and Marion's nose looks red and raw..
Stay safe,healthy, and warm everyone!

That photo of Miss B is precious! I was one of those kids who didn't really like to sit on Santa's knee. She's brave :)

Sounds like the perfect way to spend the holidays with the kids and Miss B. is such a sweetie, they do remind us what true joy is.
We have gotten flurries tonight, so will see what the morning has bought overnight.

Oh the sweet innocence of little children. How cute she is whispering into Santa's ear the desires of her heart. Just so precious.
I hope she gets her wish.
Your decorations are lovely. I love your little village houses and that santa rug.

It started snowing early this morning and we expect a lot of snow. It's supposed to get very cold next week.

Take care and stay safe and warm
