life : happy holidays!

song : the nutcracker suite opus 71A
performed by the boston pops orchestra

our christmas plans reversed themselves this week. we were to be on the road visiting others, but now people will be visiting us! although i don't have many decorations up this year, there are a few and i love the card garland i saw on blue moss. it was so easy and i combined vintage cards with new ones.

we're signing off for this year and wanted to thank you all so much for being a shining light in a year that brought us some sorrow. we hope you have the most wonderful holiday and a very happy new year! we're ready for the next decade!

xo, cindy + scott

ps i chose the song today because we're supposed to go see the nutcracker on 12/26. it was a last minute decision before scott got hurt. hope he can go because i want to see how long it takes before he falls asleep ;).

note 1.2.10: we did get to the nutcracker and this video via pj is perfect.

Dear Cindy and Scott, wishing you the most wonderful and festive Christmas and New Year's. Thank you for the tour of Christmas window displays. (You're right, that peacock tail was jaw-dropping!) Scott, I hope your foot heals quickly and nicely. There will be plenty more opportunities for snowball fights, I'm sure. And thank you for sharing memories of Helen and the beautiful trinkets she loved. I'm so glad I got to know you this year and look forward to an even better 2010.
