There is only one week until Christmas and I'm finding it difficult to get into the spirit of the holidays. I blame it on the weather. We had lots of rain last week, melting most of the little snow we had, and today we're expecting highs in the forties! This is rare for a Minnesota December.
I've limited the amount of holiday decorations on display in our home this year, opting for simplicity. The tree in our living room that is usually heavily adorned with ornaments has only lights, and this is what makes me happy for this year.
What also makes me happy are these few things scattered about the house: an ornament that belonged to my mother, a thrifted wooden shepard with his sheep, and Los Reyes Magos (our family celebrates Three King's Day).
