'tis the season

All of the snow from last weeks first snow was melted away, but on this first day of December I awoke to a fresh new blanket of snow on the ground. I could hear the snow plow go by, and I smiled to myself. I was eager to get Maxwell and show him the white that covered the streets. He gave an "oh-ah"following the one I said, and as I set him down he began to walk around chit-chatting to himself. If only I could understand! But it is always fun to listen anyway.
Yesterday Max and I hung the stockings, decorated the mantel, set up a nativity, and hung the mistletoe! We danced together to Christmas tunes, I absolutely love Christmas songs, and never get sick of them. It was a wonderful time.
This time of year brings so much joy into my heart, as we celebrate our Saviors birth. I love going to the mall and watching people bustling about.
Food never tastes better, coffee never so comforting, and people just seem sweeter. What a wonderful time of year!

I can't wait to decorate our house this Saturday! I love using fresh greens. I like everything about the season . . . except the bustling malls. :) I'd love to have snow this time of year too, but here in Maryland that doesn't usually happen until January.
