Merry Christmas

I guess I'll never grow up. This is the time of year I love placing figurines of people, animals, buildings, lamp posts, etc. together to form little towns. I love placing train tracks throughout the town so the train can ride upon them. It's fun to place small and large trees throughout the village and to place sleds and automobiles in various spots. What's more fun is sprinkling sparkley snow on everything when the town has been completed. Some houses and stores have lights inside so you can just imagine being a little person living in that town. You can think about the merriment of sledding down that steep hill you put together with cardboard and pretend you're riding with Santa and his reindeer and that the elves made each and every toy at the North Pole. You can pretend to be a passenger riding in the train that "toots" every so often. You can pretend you live in one of the houses and that all your neighbors join togther to go Christmas caroling and everybody loves everybody. It's sure fun to be a little one again.

Giving yourself permission to be a child is a great accomplishment and a great gift. Enjoy!
