Holiday party season is upon us! Have you sent out your invites? Do you even throw holiday parties?
I say "children's christmas list" but, let's be honest, anyone can use it. I mean, who doesn't still send letters to Santa in their 20's and 30's? Wait, is that just me?...
Sure, you could go out and buy a bunch of holiday cards to give out to folks this year. And, for family and close friends, I say GO FOR IT! But simple and homemade is in, so consider giving simple cards to the various co-workers, teachers, etc. this year.
Yes, I did go there with that pun. Also, I do recognize how horrible it was. But I don't regret it, because I went with my gut...
On a recent outing to a friend's house, her son invited me to share a cup of hot cocoa with him, marshmallows required. As he finished off his hot cocoa, he fetched the marshmallows from the bottom of his cup with his hands, making for a happy kid and a messy face. Though I couldn't help but laugh hysterically (sorry Kamber!), he was unintentionally making a great point - marshmallows always end up at the bottom of the cup.
As a kid, I loved snow globes. A whole magical world tucked into a looking glass. Also, it was always snowing but nobody seemed to be freezing their behinds off, which I seriously wished was possible (seeing as how I grew up in a very, very cold part of Colorado).
