Cinnamon Rolls and Bacon- the Sparkle Christmas Breakfast Tradition

There were many smiles, a few surprises and lots of joy amidst the crinkle of paper.

Much desired movies for the DVD collection (Hotel Transylvania 3 and Incredibles 2 were among the favorites)
 Nerf guns for a Sparkle War
 More Legos and Super Smash Bros for the switch
 Her own Harry Potter book collection
 A blanket scarf and earrings
 Momma even got a new tunic sweater (its soooo warm)

Christmas Palooza

Its that time of year again....
When the boxes come out of the attic and the house is transformed into a Christmas wonderland.

Momma elf was busy cleaning, prepping and preparing for the decorating of the TREES
and was so thankful when the Sparkle elves arrived home to complete the transformation.

First step after the trees are strategically placed is to top the big tree with the Angel.

 Its always a memorable experience with these 3 (usually its a one Sparkle + Daddy job but no one could remember who did it last year)

From there, its on to the select this years themes  (9 😳) and hanging the ornaments
Star Wars
Jingle Bells
Garland and Twinkle
and of course our Favorite Things and Memories

And finally its time to sit back and enjoy the SPARKLE

Tis the Season to Sparkle!
