Ok, i realize it is only Dec.1, and i am not one to jump on the holiday wagon real early on...we don't buy our tree the day after thanksgiving or put up our lights before Dec 10 or so...it just seems as i get older the season comes faster and everyone is ready so much earlier. Now, don't get me wrong, i really really love the holidays and all they involve, especially now with the wee ones. Today the secret elves (two- one for each child) did arrive here at the Z pad, (maybe i do have one foot on the holiday wagon, i guess) who hide throughout our house for the whole month of december in a new spot each day, watching and making sure all behave for st. nick. It is so fun to watch as each morning brings a new and fun elf discovery and the looks on their faces as they giggle excitedly. I love little traditions for special times as they create a feeling of groundedness and security as well as something consistent to rely on and that is always a good thing.
We did go to an adobe house which holds so much amazing history, here by us, and shared some fun pre-holiday time. Kids made candles, weavings, corn husk dolls, we ran in the fields and started a new tradition outing for us to share as a family.I love this family of mine, what a lucky gal i am.
So, are you ready for the holidays? What is a tradition in your home? I'd love to hear from you!
I am finally getting to adding some new pieces to my shop as well as getting my site up and stocked with works & words. About time. I will post some shop pics here very shortly.
Now, you go and have a delightful day.
