Sometimes part of the season is just slowing down and enjoying all of the sights and sounds. This is probably one of hardest things for me. But I'm trying. It may help that my family took a walk at our local state park. Each year the state park puts on a beautiful light show, done by volunteer's. Drawing many out into the cold, even this group.

But not to worry there is a small spot kept warm by 4-H'rs. There is cookies and cocoa, and always good company.

This is the first year that our oldest had a someone to walk the trail with. He is no longer my baby, in about two weeks he turns 16. How did that happen? My husband told me I could not stalk behind. So I just stayed close to him instead, as our other son wanted me to buy one of every cookie! Thank goodness my glasses fogged up and I put them on top of my head. So it was like having blinders on/off in regards to cookies.

Check out the cool knitted hat. It's an adapted design from my dear friend Marie Grace Designs. I could go on but that's another post.

Standing in front of all the lights, one still feels the wonder of the season. Until we talk again, May your holiday season be peaceful, safe, and spent in the company of those you love. Blessings all around, friends!

  1. Thank you for sharing your walk with me! Our local living museum does something similar and it is spectacular. The weather has not cooperated this year (lots and lots of rain) so they are having to extend their normal viewing days until the first of the year.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!!


It's always wonderful to know that you have stopped by. All of your comments brighten my day!
