for Christmas.

Time.

Hours to lay around watching Elf with my family, eating plain cheese pizza made from Kadee's hands, peeling oranges fresh from the tree, drinking eggnog and enjoying Pam's coconut baby cakes.

Rainy afternoons warmed by the fireplace Dad built, wrapping presents with Mom and watching Elf, again.

One whole evening with nothing else to do but decorate the tree, then fall asleep next to Case with the glow of Christmas lights softly illuminating the night.

Endless days of Sundays when places like the Post Office are closed and everyone knows the day is to rest.

Minutes that seamlessly pass into hours of knitting for no reason than just the satisfaction of the knit-knit-purl-knit-knit-purl.

The time to hibernate with Hermie like a wooly bear and her bear cub, to replenish, find new inspiration and catch up on all the sleep I missed this year.

Those little houses are fab! I love Elf too...OK..I own a copy! LOL.. The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

My husband and I watch Elf every year as a tradition. We love it. My mom has been making those Rolo turtles lately. They really are super good. Addictive, actually.

I love everything about this post. LOVE IT!!
