Scavenger Hunt Sunday ...

When I originally drafted this post earlier in the week, I was going to point out that we only have a couple more scavenger hunts left before the end of the year, unless you adhere to the Mayan Calendar, then this would probably be the last.

But the harsh reality of this week made it painfully clear that we should not be so cavalier about taking time for granted.  Even so, we also need to maintain hope and optimism, and focus on positive things happening in our lives.  So with that, I'll get on with this week's words; words brought to you by Danelle at 'Mom Outnumbered'.

A few of my favorite things

~*~*~*~ Sparkly ~*~*~*~

I picked some of these up for package toppers. 
Sparkles/glitter everywhere. Awe, love the holidays!

 ~*~*~*~ Door ~*~*~*~ 
 not too thrilled with door shots this week - so I'll go with simple


outside Church

~*~*~*~ Decorate ~*~*~*~ 

a little 'something something' for the house makes such a difference.
As I've discussed in earlier posts this week, while I could foresee cutting back on decorating when the kids are no longer around for the holidays (which they are strictly forbidden to ever do to me) - I could never skip Christmas decorating all together.

~*~*~*~ Stripes ~*~*~*~ 

and then I thought of this 

~*~*~*~ a few of my favorite things ~*~*~*~

until next week  . . .
