Hello Monday {Blue Ribbon Boy}

Hello Monday is our place to welcome a brand new week and reflect on the old one. 

This silly boy will be saying "Hello" to the mayor this week when he receives his certificate for winning a blue ribbon in the Thanksgiving art show. 

Hello to giving decorating responsibilities to the boys. They love to set things up, and I love to see what they come up with.

Hello to simplifying. Not all of the decorations are coming out this year, thanks to our youngest cat who is seeing all the joy for the first time -- up close. Too close.

Hello to keeping the spirit of the holidays in the holidays and not getting too busy to soak up the joy.
Hello to making a list and thinking about Christmas shopping.  I haven't done one single bit yet.
Hello to listening to Christmas music on the radio when we are out and about running errands.

Hello to settling back into our daily routine after a week off for Thanksgiving.

I love simple holidays. I am all about them.

Congrats to your boy on his blue ribbon. That's awesome. Great accomplishment.

I also am a fan of simple holidays. We have everything out, but our everything isn't much at all. I think it is two totes worth of goodies (which includes our Nativity). Congrats on the award. Meeting the Mayor sounds exciting! I'm stopping by today from Lisa Leonard.
