When I think of the magic of Christmas....
my heart always travels to my childhood.
There I remember the Christmas of the past,
but I equally enjoy the Christmas of NOW.
My Mom is 91 years young...and a continual inspriation for me.
Here are photos of the Christmas party she provided for all of us.
She takes such incredible care to decorate her home.
From the humble stable I remember as a child.....
....to the selection of Christmas decorations that
makes my heart remember Christmas with joy.
There are tables filled with LOTS of treats...
None more adorable than the handmade "letters" that she creates for each of us.
A Dutch tradition that we all continue to enjoy.
There are books to be read to the children....
....and a table set with great care.
An abundance of presents for all....
....and even a visit from Santa Claus!!!!
All of which have made this Christmas season so very special.
You have seen it thru the eyes of my Mom...next you will see it thru the eyes of the children.
Precious....just like my Mom!!!!
