There is little in life that makes me happier than hanging stockings over a fire and then sitting by that Christmas magic every morning with a hot cup of coffee.

I am so grateful this rental house has a fireplace.
Did you decorate your tree yet? I love the fresh smell of evergreen branches almost as much as stockings over the fire.
This week was Zach’s birthday, and he took the day off from work. Zach’s cousin, Tyler happened to be the substitute teacher for the day, and I was crying reading the sub notes he left behind.
We had a girls day with my in-laws, and then celebrated Zach’s birthday that evening.
His celebration included a family affair on the floor trying to beat the laws of gravity. You lay on the floor with your hands behind your back and try to stand up.
Lily was everyone’s personal coach. Ha.
The secret, if you’re interested, is a face plant on the floor to get your knees up and under you. My chin is still bruised.
