I was so blessed to have these past 3 days off in a row along with my husband and daughter. We rarely get solid days off together and were able to spend quality time. I was looking forward to this holiday for so long, to be able to be with them and bond. I feel like my daughter is slipping through my fingers every day.
One thing we got to do was go get her a library card. She loves Harry Potter and has already read all but one of the books, but she is now re-reading them "in order". While she dove into her new library book, I plopped down next to her on the couch to finish up the victorian/shabby/primitive/voyageur/woodland santa. The material came from Jennifer of Stitchin Thyme in a spring swap we had been paired up in. The trim on Santa's hat came from Robin of Bagg A Raggs. She is the Queen of trims.
My daughter also wanted to go on a little road trip where we had lunch together and found this candy cane for only $4. Love the vintage look.
This crate also come into our possession for only $8. Always wanted a few of these.
We even had time to put up the tree without stress and she did all of the decorating while I unpacked the boxes. A certain someone likes to sleep under the tree, if you can see her in the picture. We even camped out on the living room floor and left the tree on all night.
I am so thankful to have been able to spend this time with my daughter. A true blessing.
