"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." Norman Vincent Peale
"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air."
"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall."
"Christmas - that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance - a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved."
- Augusta E. Rundel
Nothing makes me happier than seeing Christmas through Stella's eyes this year. Seeing the fascinated twinkle in her eye as she stares at Christmas tree lights, watching her enchanted gaze as she met Santa for the first time yesterday, and the smiles she explodes with when listening to Christmas music...it is a truly magical season.
We are certainly counting our blessings and are sending warm wishes your way!
