After the rush of preparations, we are finally on Christmas vacation. Yesterday at school was spirit filled. Lots of presents and sweets and a surprize holiday concert from the orchestra, right in front of the library. We were in the middle of our normal routine and suddenly heard the Carol of the Bells. It was magical. I begged the director to do it again next year, with even more songs.
We are all ready for Santa around here. The cookies are baked, presents wrapped (almost) and the house decorated. Our Christmas party was last weekend, filled with family & friends. We are going to Old Town Alexandria today for our annual browse about, picking up those fun last minute gifts that happen to catch our eye.
Just a few bits of Christmas around our house this year....
Hope & I usually do a little holiday craft each year and this year I decided that we should try out a matchbox diarama. Hope's wasn't done when I took this photo, so I can just show you mine. Lots of glitter (hard to see here), teeny tiny trees, a cupcake topper and mica snow.
The newest Santa in my collection. Love him.
How are your Christmas preparations coming along?
