A Merry, Mindful Christmas Eve

Well, that special time is upon us.  We all knew it was coming and we worked hard on our lists of to-do's and what-to-makes and tried our best to get it all done. 
I've tried to be mindful of making it a more balanced  time this year.  Less rushing, less frivolous details, more time for calm and meaning. 
But no matter how I try to plan or stay ahead, I always seem to add more as I go along. 
 One thing done = 2 projects added. 
It's been good though.  I've enjoyed slower days with the Little People.  I've enjoyed making some gifts with them.  We've had fun making some ornaments and I finally made this very simple Farmhouse Chic Christmas Rose Wreath.  It actually turned out simpler than planned, but again, that's what I've been going for this year.  I think it's worked. 

 Of course, with every little thing we do, my heart still breaks for all of those innocent lives lost in Connecticut, as well as the families affected.  As I try to be mindful of the  time spent with my little family, and as I continue to worry about and pray for my sweet grandparents, I can't help but include them in my thoughts and prayers as well. 

I also can't help but be reminded of the song lyrics, "Peace on Earth, Goodwill Toward Men..."

Wishing you a peaceful and Merry Christmas.
