“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Day after Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving yesterday!
My Birthday give away is tonight, and I couldn't resist adding these awesome little candies(they smell incredible) to the gift box...aren't they cute?

We took Helena to see Santa Claus last Friday...to beat the crowd, (have you seen the line to see him after Thanksgiving???)this was the first year she has been ok with him...and she talked his ear off!
Not only did she tell him what she'd like for Christmas (an Olivia pirate ship)
she told him a very boring, very long, very drawn out story about absolutely nothing in particular!
So all in all, it was a success.

I will be back later to announce the winner:)


  1. Oh, your daughter is PRECIOUS!!!! That is such a beautiful photo. Whoever wins your wonderful giveaway will be most lucky indeed. :) Theresa

  2. How adorable! Helena is a cutie! What's an Olivia pirate ship?
    Gingerbread flavored marshmallows! Yummo!
    Take care,

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAREST!!! Oh, we had a great Thanksgiving and your little one is so dear! (they all love to chat it up with unsequenced stories!!!)

    Thank you for coming over and leaving such sweet comments. My husband's embrace truly is my favorite place on earth!

    Many happy wishes to you and yours as we gear up for the BIG holiday of love and light. Anita
