A Christmas camera card dump

We’re done with school until January, but Zoe squeezed in some school under the Christmas lights earlier this month.

Such a comfortable way to work on your grammar book.

Sonia and Zoe have been playing the Santa Tracker game. 😉

Zoe strung some extra lightsicles on the deck, and even thought we didn’t have enough to go all the way around, I do love them.

We’ve had small snows twice this month, which is a little unusual.

One was of the fluffy sort.

And the other was like the sky sprinkled a heavy-handed dose of sea salt on us.

I love the way the heat of the light melts a little circle in the snow.

Really, I love all the lights this time of year. Just delightful at a time when the sky provides so few hours of daylight.

If our tree wasn’t real, I’d probably vote for keeping it up through January at least, if only for the joy the twinkly lights provide.

I’m not sure how much I’ll be around between Christmas and the new year, so in case I don’t pop back in before then…Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

And I hope your holiday season is lovely.

Loved this post! Please let Sonia know that I received the mice (we were in Louisiana when they got to OK!). They are absolutely adorable! I’ll be sharing them this week; although I DO plan on keeping one for myself!

I'm so behind on getting ready for Christmas this year that I am really simplifying it. I think I like that! Merry Christmas Kristen and commenters!

Your holiday lights and classic decor are lovely! Thank you for sharing this glimpse into your holiday season.

We've been working on the front landscaping (new driveway, retaining walls, lighting, planters, groundcover, new hedge) for well over a year. It's been a long, expensive slog. It's finally coming together. This year, when the holiday lights went up, we magically went from Project Central to Beautiful Home. My heart swells with gratitude every time I glimpse the holiday lights. Maybe because at night you can't tell that the house needs to be painted, sigh. Oh well, the new paint's in the garage, awaiting the approach of Spring...

I hope you and your oh-my-how-the-children-have-grown family have a wonderful Christmas together. Thanks for giving all of us another year of TFG perfection!
