Christmas in the Blink of an Eye

As with every year, we spend so much time preparing for Christmas and then it is seemingly over in the blink of an eye. 

We had a nice Christmas Day – different, but in a good way for us. 

Each decoration, tradition and recipe held a very special place in our hearts and minds this year.

Happy memories and traditions carried on and new traditions made.     

Handmade hearts made by my mother-in-law. Ball ornament to the left given to us by our grandson. Sparkly prancing reindeer, a new addition this year because . . . 2020 and glitter!
Mostly handmade decorations: Tall angel with gold star in background made by my mother-in-law, Nativity made by mother-in-law, White ceramic Christmas tree – my 1st attempt to make a ceramic tree. The faceless angel, Joy is her name, was my Mom’s.
Santa made by my Great Aunt. Ice Skate ornament given to us from my Mom.
Away in a Manger…hand painted by my mother-in-law
Thanks to our grandson’s suggestion this year, we added M & M cookies to our Holiday baking! YUM!

2020, in the blink of an eye, has disrupted our lives for better or worse.

Despite the worst, my hope is for the better in 2021.

Enough 2020!
