All, memories to treasure...

The Christmas spirit is pretty high here at Casa de Motherscribe. We are all gettin' jingly with it. JCK has decorated the mantle with fresh cut trimmings off the tree, along with bunches of pyracantha berries, candles, and an angel or two. Large pine cones, bows, and twinkly lights deck the halls. The tree has the traditional court jester atop it, and colored lights. There is no subtlety here...

BOY & GIRL are fully in the Christmas spirit. Today JCK and the little rascals put together a gingerbread house and tree. It would do well in Vegas, this gingerbread house. BOY & GIRL believe MORE is MORE in decorating. And JCK lets them. After all, someday...they will be older and more tasteful.

JCK is drinking up all of these moments. It is as if she can feel time flowing through her fingers. But, she is able to hold on to some precious, sparkly grains of sand. Some soft. Some gritty. All, memories to treasure...

Very festive. And I love the 'gettin' jingly with it' line. May have to steal that. :)

Gorgeous - and I really want to see that gingerbread house. I'm in the camp of more is better when it comes to gingerbread.

Just saw your blog listed at Jenn's and realised I have lost track of you. So sorry.

I hope you and your lovely family have a wonderful Christmas

I so love the sand analogy; tactile & poignant.
