What a whirlwind it is around here....my trip to Australia was
 amazing and had to end two days early due to flights being changed.....
Which meant that I had to change gears in my head, 
pack up and head home on Thanksgiving Day!!!

I have always been HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS....so traveling home on Thanksgiving Day had me thinking of my family and as I got closer I began to understand something I had not experienced before....COMING  "Home for the Holidays"!! 
It was exciting, ,tiring, and full of anticipation!
 It was emotional, and heartwarming!! 
There were "Welcome Home" signs, lots of hugs, and tears!! 



 I will write more later about my amazing trip 
and share some of the things I got to do.....
but for now.....
I hope you all here in the USA had a
 great Thanksgiving with family and friends and are
 beginning to prepare for the weeks ahead leading up to
 Christmas!!!

-----------------------
joy (joi)
noun
the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by
 something exceptionally good or satisfying.

--------------------------
The are so much JOY in my Christmas
memories that I hold in my heart
and
"bringing home the tree"
is one of them!
We have driven up to the mountain and hiked forever through the snow
in the search of the perfect tree...

We've driven from lot to lot in the city hunting and hunting for the right one....

I remember a Christmas when all the pine needles fell off the tree
So my parents went and bought a little silver tree at the department store!


These days I send my kids out and they bring me home
The most wonderful trees!!
I think I enjoy these trees the most!
It's such s JOY to see the excitement in their faces
as they anticipate my reaction to their find!

I love going to see their trees as well
and have them show me
how they decorated their tree!

So this season when you are
"bringing home the tree"
I hope you are filled with JOY!!
Here is a little red trunk ornament
 for you to add to your Christmas decorations!!


And....
Of course being a nana
I have to say my biggest JOY does come from my six grandchildren!
