popcorn / cranberries
Taylor got home today and I already had plans for us. I guess I should have let her relax a bit. But we're a little behind on the decorating - there are no ornaments on the tree yet and the mantel looked a little lacking. So I thought what a relaxing sort of activity it would be to string some popcorn for the mantel - we added cranberries too. We talked about some Christmases past - some when I was young and some when she was young. She made one string and I made another - it worked out perfectly and it didn't take long either./ the house looked so pretty when i walked in today - it was warm and smelled of pine. haha, i should have known mom would have some decorating for us to do today. it was fun though. it reminded me of photo we took for our card one Christmas when i was young - mom made me a mrs. claus outfit - a little short, red circle skirt and jacket trimmed in fake fur - I wore a santa hat and sat by the tree stringing popcorn. it was the year it actually snowed for Christmas - 2000 - the year my cousins (twins) were born on Christmas Eve.

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
