miscellany monday - random Christmas wrapup

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

There are a few random things that I want to savor from this Christmas holiday:

1.  Seeing the joy on my kids' faces.

2.  Reminisce about the sheets of paper towel that my mom used to wrap ornaments...that I still have and now store those same ornaments in them.  I also loved looking at the different ornaments that I made when I was a know, a few years ago:)

3.  New soap scents from Bath and Body Works...I just love their soap.

4.  Memorizing Luke 2:1-14 with favorite moment. As soon as I figure out how to download the video I'll show it to you.

I love the photos of the kiddos! :o) What a fun Christmas you all had.

What a fun idea to wrap ornaments in sheets and towels to keep them safe. I love that egg carton ornament. I'm fairly certain I made ones just like it--only a few years ago, of course. ;o)

Good luck with the video. Sorry I couldn't be more help. :o(

It is so sweet to see their faces on Christmas morning. Priceless. Love Bath and Body works soap too. YUMMY smelling.

What is it about ornaments that bring us so many memories! I love that you still use the same sheets of paper towels your mom used.

I always love new hand smells (:

LOVE their sweet faces, they're adorable! and so cool that you still have those cherished ornaments from your mom...even though they're just a few years old ;)

can't wait to see your video! I really need to be better about memorizing our versus.

What sweet photos of Jamison and Caleb! You can tell they thoroughly enjoyed themselves :) I love B&BW soaps too - we have SO many of them which is nice because I never run out of hand soap! Must keep myself out of that store this week though - Lord knows I don't need anything but it is so tempting! Can't wait to see the video - I am sure it is priceless!

Looks like your kiddos were supremely happy this Christmas! Evan was too:) Love the B&BW soaps too, but I do the lotion in mine because my hands get so dry! I have a huge stash in my cleaning closet, so I didn't buy any new ones this year, but both of them that you show here appeal to me!

Emily said...

YUM...BandBW makes washing your hands fun!

Oh how I love that apple wreath scented soap!! I have it in my half bath and I purposely go to that soap to wash my hands.

Hope ya'll had a great holiday!

The kiddos look so happy with their gifts:) I need to check out the new soaps a Bath & Bodyworks. Is that one on the right sugar cookies?!?

Ha! I have a shoebox of old ornaments in the same paper towels they were wrapped in decades ago! And I thought I was the only one. I'll have to look for those new soap scents too.

Visiting from Misc Monday. I was drawn to your blog because our blogs' names are so similar :). Now following you.

I love the photos! I love J's happy face and C's mis-matched jammies! He reminds me so much of Grant!!!

I LOVE that you have the paper towels. I think you and I are cut from the same sentimental cloth!
