The Christmas Cloak


I always dreamed of having a red velvet cloak, so when Sophia was 3 I made her just that.
I made it a few sizes big so it would last. She looked so elegant as it brushed the snow as she walked. Well, the funny thing is that here is that same cloak. At 8 it still fits her, that's the great thing about cloaks, no sleeves to grow out of.
I hope you all had a warm and happy Thanksgiving! We are decorating the tree today, it's like magic, once the tree goes up everyone is a little sweeter, a little quieter, and the number of hugs and kisses being distributed has greatly increased!
I think I should keep it up all year!
Here's a couple hugs and a kiss for all of you... Smoosh....Smoochy..Squish..!

Hey, it's true about the numerous kisses at your house. I got one too. My husband kissed me right there in front of everyone and then I noticed the mistletoe I was standing under.
