We're heading into some busy days here in the Gypsy house…. the kind filled with magic and anticipation and little ones barely being able to keep their gifts under the tree a secret. Last night, after wrapping antique store finds my dear Miss 8 handed her gifts to each family member and told them "please, just open it now." We persuaded her to let us wait until Christmas…. a whole 4 days, such torture! She then ran down the hallway to her room happily yelling "I can't keep it all in!" She is not the secret keeper of the family….. and my little Luke is giving me clues. "Okay mama, I can't tell you what's in the paper, but it's fragile and it's for the kitchen."
Does anyone have bets on these things remaining secret?
Oh the things I have to share with you after the festivities are surely piling up in my mind. Giftables, handmades & sweet kid stories. All good stuff, for sure.
For now, I realize that this space will have some quiet days….. I'm hoping to pop in with a group photo of sorts by the weeks end (getting 6 people to cooperate, oh please do wish me luck!)… but for the most part I'll be nibbling on peppermint bark and drinking coffee and finishing up last minute elves work in the upcoming days.
Wishing you a beautiful Solstice and a magical holiday.
The Gypsy Mama
