Grey Matter

The few weeks right before Christmas have to be my most favourite time of the year. I love all the fun stuff that comes with Christmas like shopping for gifts (this is the first year I am doing that on my own), celebrating with family and friends, going to church, eating all the deliciousness being served up (when else do you get a free ticket to eat cookies and drink hot cocoa almost every night??) and let's not forget opening all the pressies with my name on them!
Some people (I'm looking at you grownups!) find this time of the year crazy stressful! They tell me that maybe I love it so much because I have no other responsibilities other than making sure I'm happy and having fun but what if we all stopped stressing out just for a little bit and took a moment to remember what it was like at Christmas time when you were a kid and just really enjoyed being in that moment, even if it was only for an afternoon or night? I bet the people around you would love it (and I'm pretty sure you will too!)
Do you have any special holiday memories that bring you right back to the happiness you felt being a kid at Christmas?


  1. How did you get to be so smart?! I remember when I was little I would spend the time before Christmas looking forward to all my aunts, uncles and cousins coming to visit us in Niagara Falls. We had moved away from Toronto for a few years and while we lived in NF, they would all come to stay for a few days starting on Christmas Eve so that we could all still be together for the holidays. It would be a little crowded, squeezing 30 people into a tiny house but we would all have the very best time just being with each other! What I wouldn't do to relive just one night!

  2. Hey cutie!!!! Looking sharp as always!
