visions of sugarplums......

A collage of the shiny faces in my life. Singing carols, making crafts, hanging out, playing reindeer games, sharing friendships, having some at Christmas time. These are a few of my favourite photos of the season.......... Today, Christmas Eve will most likely FEEL like the longest day of the year for these beautiful kids as they anticipate Christmas morning.

They are ALL growing UP!! These are my favourite girls in my life........and they have grown up together like sisters.

Loved the Christmas concert at the school this year. The boys are dressed in their white shirts and black pants because they are in the boy choir.......I took a bunch of photos prior to the concert from the doorway of the classroom. My son, whom I embarrass on a regular basis it seems, was moaning about looking like a member of the geek squad dressed like they were. I reassured them that they all have the potential to be members if they don't watch out!

These outdoor photos were taken during the tree lighting
ceremony outside of the provincial legislature. The Garden Creek boys choir were part of the entertainment. Sweet young voices singing silent night........
It was best that I continued taking photos to keep my composure ........

Wishing you a Merry Christmas, from my world to yours.

Visions of sugarplums.... it's all I've been reminding myself of through this season. If I could focas my attention on the sugarplums, I could make it through.. and I did. How uncanny that you would use this as a blog title.

I, too, love the pictures... they represent all that is pure about the season, and all we forget to remember when we are trapped in traffic trying to find the perfect gift.... all the while the perfect gift is in front of us.

Hoping you and your family have a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas, my friend.... and many happy new years to follow.
