each year my parents host us all for turkey soup and leftovers on the sunday after thanksgiving.
we sit around the fire while the girls and seamus uproot all of my mother’s santas and reindeer that have been hiding in the cabinet all year.
they love to set them all up in one big scene for marmee to then later scatter around her beautiful home.
my sister and i love to reminisce at the collection. some are as old as me including her german smoker men.
i so appreciate the many things my mom has kept over the years and how they have created tradition and joy for us all.
