La Dulce Vida...

Old Christmas music is blaring from the speakers and that can only mean one thing. The kids are inspired and finally putting the ornaments on the tree. I don't decorate the tree. Our family thing is to have them hang everything on it and the parents will take it down and put it away. Of course we rearrange where the spots that have been left off with nothing to admire but overall it's their job. I believe it is the only way to tell how excited they really are and it is bit of commitment and dedication for all things Christmas. The work they share only makes the actual day sweeter.

 :::next day:::

Today marks the second anniversary since my brother left us. I can't hold back the tears. I continue to struggle with an array of feelings and emotions. It comes in waves and sometimes the waves are so high that I can't help but to lose sight and it feels like I am drowning. But I am grateful for the friends that surround me...

Those that throw me a life preserver when I am going down...

  4. The pics of the kids decorating are gorgeous! I'm the same - have always let the hatchling do it up how she wants. Last weekend we put ours up to the tunes of Taylor Swift.
