Winter Blessings

Hello dear friends...I know its been some time since I stopped by and shared a visit with you all..this time of year we have many wonderful Goings-on,and I have been determined to enjoy them all.. 

I'm sure like all of you..we have had this and that to take care of..mixed in with deadlines,to-do's and organizing....but this year...I am feeling in the moment...
Filled with pride as my sweet young lady Hannah sang in one of her many Chorus performances...



and making memories with Joshua, his classmates,and some Mom and Dads, huddled together as we froze our behinds off on a field trip to a local fishery..one field trip I will always remember..Brrrr..



                   and thankful for having the opportunity to plan school parties and spend beautiful moments with my little man ....

                                          

...and humming as I decorate the house ...




 and sneek a peak at "Their Tree" in the den...filled with treasures made by the hands of my "Not So Little" Little ones..









So now its time for a school winter break and I'm feeling cozy with the idea of cuddling together,wrapping presents,making hot cocoa,watching Polar Express,visiting family and making memories...mmmmmnnn...sounds lovely.
Blessings to you all dear friends.
As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

What a charming post, I enjoyed your share and music. I am waiting for my baby to show, she has celebrated with me twice in eight years. Enjoy them while you have them home, they don't come as often as you would wish. I usually go somewhere nice by myself.Happy holsidays to you and your lovely family.

Seems you're having a festive and busy holiday - fun!

Though, exactly how festive a visit to a fishery might be, I have to question. :-P

Merry Christmas Cat. Enjoy the family and festivities.
Hannah looks SO grown up! They never really totally grow up, if you are lucky, and I am, they still want
to talk with you all the time. xox Corrine

Aw, your kids are so beautiful! My youngest is 13, and I know I will blink and he will be out the door. So I am going to spend lots of 'cocoa time', hopefully watch some Christmas movies and bake our favorite treats together. Merry Christmas to you and your family! xox Pam

Hi Cat, just love your idea of having a special and separate tree totally dedicated to the artistic talents of your children It makes it all theirs to be proud of, and, fills another room with holiday splendor! Love it, love it!
Blessings and hugs,
Susan

cat, your comment on my blog made me very happy we have met one another. i don't know if you know that i understand from my own experience, but i do. i just can't bring myself to close down tight.
but i'm wiser, cat. i move alittle more slowly and i know the worse is possible even though i hold tight to the best.

i look forward to coming here and to your visits in my neck of the woods.

with love
kj

ps it's almost christmas eve. enjoy everything. ♥
