The house is full with the smell of Thanksgiving and Christmas coming.....looking forward to family and friends for this Thanksgiving. We have had many quiet ones but this year we will be a full house. That just warms my heart. Now, don't get me wrong I like the quiet ones too, but now that my boys are all grown up, I miss the sounds of children at this time of year. So happy to have nieces and their children, and making this a tradition each year. Cooking, eating, clean up, making gingerbread houses, dessert, more clean up and lots of love and laughter.
We have so much to be thankful for this year, as we do every year. We missed Sandy, but, we will see what the snows of winter bring.
I love to go out this time of year and greet people with love and smiles and a hello. It get so busy we forget to greet each other....so when you are out greet someone with love and kindness, and a huge smile like you mean it.
My favorite smells are pine candles burning, good home cooking. My favorite sounds are the timer going off to take something delectable out of the oven, christmas music, family and friends.
So what are your favorite smells, sounds and family traditions?
