Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to our American friends!

I love Thanksgiving for lots of reasons, but I especially love the jolt of Holiday Spirit it provides! Suddenly neighborhoods are lit with twinkle, halls are decked, and children start to wonder about the magic and lore of this season, whatever holiday you celebrate.

My family celebrates Christmas. Our tree is up and my daughter is starting to ask lots of questions about this Santa fella. She’s also fascinated with the new “doll house” (manger) adorning our mantle! It is very exciting. Every night she looks forward to turning the tree on and reading a Christmas story. Many questions, tons of wonder, and pure excitement. I know children only have a few years of this pure holiday innocence and I plan to enjoy it.

Give thanks, peace, and Happy Thanksgiving to you.

In from the cold

It has turned cold, here in Canada! Not super-cold, but light flakes are falling. My three year old daughter doesn’t seem to ‘get’ that it is cold. Is that strange? She refuses to wear mitts, then complains that her hands are cold. She thinks she can still ride her scooter everywhere she goes, then complains that its cold. She will NOT wear snow pants. Will she get over this? So strange.. she likes the outside, but she seems to be in denial. I am too.. but I’m old and don’t particularly like winter. She seems to like winter – but won’t dress for it. Lots of complaining…

Here’s hoping she gets over this soon!
