Getting into the Christmas Spirit (Sunday Snapshot)

Spirit WM-2
 “Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!” 

~ Dr. Suess, How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Xmas Spirit

I've often wondered, what is the Christmas spirit?
What does that mean?
It seems like people are happier, kinder
and more giving.
It's a shame that it goes away after Christmas is over.
Maybe we can all try to keep Christmas in our hearts
all year round.
Spirit WM
These were all taken this week...
the bits and pieces that I saw of Christmas around me.
Vintage tree decorations that come from my mother in law's family,
Will's school Christmas program, Grace performing at a benefit for a local
charity that helps families, and the lights at a nearby tree lot.
I see Christmas in all the details.
I leave shortly to photograph the live Nativity at our church tonight.
I hope you see Christmas around you.

It looks like you had the most wonderful week. There was a little bit of everything in it! Togetherness, decorating, fun : ).

I wish you lived in PA so I could meet your babies. I heard your weather was insane this week! I hope you are all thawed out.

Love, love, LOVE, Becky

I love soaking in all things Christmas. I love to sit by the light of the tree and look at all the ornaments. Have a great evening.

I am with you! It is too bad the spirit seems to go away when Christmas ends!

What lovely images of this special time of year. Love the vintage ornaments. And your kids are gorgeous. That bottom right photo of Grace by the tree is to die for! She could be a model.
