JMJ *After cutting out your snowflakes, make some more in the traditional way, and post them in your windows. At night, they will make a spectacular silhouette against the dark night sky, a beautiful faux snow, which is something we need here in sunny southern California.
Take a look at the featured photo. It is faux snow in all its glory. (snow made with soap suds!) In southern California, it is the best we can hope for unless we head for the local mountains.
Every day for 16 days, I have shared a different way to savor the season. I hope that you took advantage of some of them. Here is the final one!
Ways to Savor the Season 16/16- Make some paper snowflakes (or faux snow)
I love playing around with snowflake designs in my spare time. It is a fun hobby of mine. My Christmas gift to you is a free snowflake pattern. All you need are scissors and a hole punch, and the downloaded pattern. Click below to access the free pattern.

On the homefront… Ring the School Bell 77/180 Days
To my surprise, in my busy-ness, I apparently had not mentioned to Sarah and Melissa that it was the last day of academics before break! They were thrilled to say the least! We received news that the USC music school is not a go. Never fun to get that kind of news, but Sabrina was a good sport about it, and thankfully it wasn’t her first choice of universities.
Merry Christmas to all and a blessed New Year!

** Note to the Reader- Today’s narrative is part of our family’s school journey from a few years ago, during my eldest daughter’s senior year in high school, a rather emotional year, with its many ups and downs. Every day’s blog entry coincides with a day from that special year. It can be read from the beginning by selecting the “Ring the School Bell 180” category on the side bar. Commence with the narrative, “The School Bell- What comes to mind when ‘you’ hear that bell?”

May God shower blessings on your family as he has on mine. Annette
