Sometimes it doesn't take much at all to just make me smile. Like friends who know me well enough to bring by a treat like this, just for me:
Or a card as hilariously hideous as this:
Or a pair of awesome bootish-socks with SOLES! like these:
Kind messages in my inbox, pictures and Christmas greetings in my mailbox:
Spending time with my family every year on Christmas Eve:
and watching cousins (along with my Mom) having a blast together:
The Santa at the grocery store tonight who took the time to talk to my wide-eyed Little O without being asked (I wish I had my camera with me!) even though he probably just wanted to buy his Diet Coke and Wheat Thins and get home to Mrs. Claus.
It's the little things that make me happy during the holidays.
I hope your Christmas (and beyond) is filled with lots of Little Things.
