That Holiday Feeling

Last night the kids, Leif and I decorated the Christmas tree. It is hands down one of our all time favorite family activities. Bringing out our extensive collection of meaningful ornaments always makes for a grand opportunity to reminisce. My cousin Annie gave us a wish ball for our tree a couple of years ago and it is one of our favorite Christmas traditions. This year we opened up the ball to discover our wishes from last year. Mine came true! My heart shaped slip of paper said, "I wish Barack Obama will be elected president!" We also have my collection of Stienbach Nutcrackers prominently displayed on the mantel alongside pointe shoes worn and signed by Joffrey dancers!
We felt like we had achieved that perfect holiday feeling and then mother nature took it one step further...

The first snow of the season greeted us this morning.
