Taking a moment

 It's been a busy, busy week
full of wonderful, fun activities...
a recital
an anniversary
a concert
gingerbread houses
Christmas lights
and more shopping than I would have liked.


 But on the 21st, we took a moment out of the busy-ness to sit down as a family 
to a candle-lit dinner.

It's amazing what a few candles will do to transform an otherwise normal activity
into something special.  

Magic.

I really should use candles at dinner too. They will soften the look of my wrinkles as the love of my life gazes into my eyes while eating hot dogs.
