Well, every year my youngest and I like to go to a holiday show. It can be a movie or a play or a sing along. Just something special for the two of us. This year, when I saw the ad in the paper, I just knew it had to be the traveling tour of Broadways Cinderella! Oh how I love that show. I grew up on Leslie Ann Warren singing the wonderful songs of Rogers and Hammerstein and I taught that love to my children early on. My youngest was so excited. The show was incredible! Such voices. Such dancing. And at one point we both had tears in our eyes. I commemorated the evening by giving my Em a blue and white sparkly crown ornament for her tree. I hope when she looks at it, she will remember, "A Lovely Night!"!
The cards are out for this year, I didn't do a Christmas letter. I choose to sit on my couch, coffee and cookies at hand and wrote little messages inside. I had the time finally and I quite enjoyed it. We always include what I call our silly picture of the 4 of us. Usually taken on a birthday or holiday. It's always in the kitchen (the lighting is the best) and we take about 10 of them, acting all sorts of silly. This year's picture was from my Royal Wedding Birthday Party.
Okay, back to the Coke crate idea. I must have been talking about this a lot because one day my hubby comes home from being out and about and in his hands are not one crate, but two! A Coke and an RC Cola. Beat up and battered and looking so fine. Turns out his friend had them at his shop and was kind enough to sell them to my hubby. What a great surprise! So for this year, this is what I came up with:
Plus, I gave my new bear a new ride! My vintage Tonka Jeep is now a Christmas truck.
Off I go, today I am just going to relax and watch some football and try not to get any more ideas....lol This coming week is just for some visiting, some baking, and hanging out with my hubby. While I anticipate my oldest getting home for the holidays from her business trip. All I want for Christmas is all 4 of us together. Always, Kit
