I have always loved this time of year, my birthday is amongst the hustle and bussle of the holiday and yes it tends to still get tucked aside but oh well its not nearly as fun to celebrate a birthday when you get older or is it, I always love a chance to celebrate. Maybe its the magic of the holidays that I love so much, the lights, the music the decorations the cheer, the MAGIC of the season in my children's eyes the gleam of sheer delight as they take in every last detail of decortating the tree, decorating the house and the wonder of it all.
Im so lucky that the spirt is still alive and well here in our home and it makes it so much more magical, last year we welcomed Tinsel our Elf on the Shelf into our family and this year she brought her twin sister with her Sparkle and WOW have they caused some mischief but its awesome to hear the first things from my daughters in the morning be "lets find Tinsel and Sparkle and see what they did last night.
For this is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year right.
Here is Tinsel and Sparkle's return to our home this year.
