Christmas is less than  3 weeks away!! Hard to believe, time is flying way to fast.

The tree is up and we are loving having it on in the evenings.

The village is nearly ready

The Elf is up to her usual mischief, we never know what she will be getting into.

I made 12 placemats for family this year, and of course, none for myself!!  Have to get on that.

Keely sang with the school choir for the Castle Rock Starlighting ceremony,  such a wonderful small town tradition and everyone loves the star shining throughout the holiday season.

One of the many joys of living in Colorado is the abundance of winter activities.  Skiing is something we enjoy as a family and had the opportunity to spend a couple days up in Beaver Creek.  The beauty of the mountains never fail to amaze me. 

It's been another year of joy and wonder having a 10, soon to be 11 year old when you are in your 60's.  She truly does keep me young and on my toes.  She is smart, funny, affectionate, loves pretty much everything I love and still loves spending time with me. I hold these days in my heart because I know that as she gets older she will probably move away from me :-(  and spread those wings that today are still wrapped around me!
