This was an ornament we made back when PJ was just over a year old. Kevin made the star shape, I wound the wire and sprayed the glue. And PJ? Well he threw the glitter, some of it hit the star, most of it ended up covering the kitchen table and floor.
It still sheds glitter every time I take it out of the ornament box, every time his sister moves it to a new spot on the tree during her (now daily) tree redecorating sessions and every time I put it away until next year’s holiday rolls around.
Every time I watch as the glitter hits the carpet, smiling.
*Everyday this December I am striving to post a picture-a-day in the hopes of capturing the little moments that may seem ordinary at the time but, when strung together throughout this naturally hectic month, become the extraordinary ones that keep me ground until the new year. If you want to join me go here. I would love to share in your days as well.
