Stripes, Lights, and Everything Nice

Since the weather turned cooler, I have noticed that many of Riley’s winter clothes are striped. He has actually noticed it too, staring down at his sleeves and trying to figure out how more than one color got there. He looks cute in just about anything, but I have come to love him in stripes, whether it be PJs, a shirt, or his hat; drinking his morning milk (with a new friend), playing with his toys, or on a wagon ride with his mama.

He even sleeps with stripes!

He was also in stripes the first couple of times he got up close to Nola’s newly decorated Christmas tree(s) early last week. Christmas has most definitely arrived here, with the house fully and completely bedecked and bedazzled with decorations and lights. It looks spectacular, and I’m just crossing my fingers that we can make it through the entire holiday season without anything breaking. My motto with Riley so far has been, “Just look, don’t touch.” We’ll see if that works for another month.


Riley is loving all of the lights, especially the ones outside on houses and in gardens. We’ve started taking a few early evening wagon rides right before dinner so he can check out all of our neighbors’ luminous displays. And I can’t wait to take him in Nopsi’s van…..there are lights up in it again this year!

However, this is what I am most happy about right now: Kenny recently spent a couple of hours at our storage unit, crawling around in tight, confined spaces searching for the bin that contained our Christmas stockings. I thought we would sadly be without them this year, but he managed somehow to unearth them and bring them to me. Such a sweet man I am married to. Thanks, Baby!


So, stockings have been found, trees have been put up, pine and cinnamon scents abound everywhere, and eggnog is in the fridge. I just love Christmastime.

Hope everyone’s holiday season is off to a warm and happy start!
