Lesa Moemeka from Rocky Hill, CT shows us a glimpse of what Christmas means to her.
"This is my absolute favourite time of year and decorating the tree with my 8 year old son is a must. All our ornaments have been collected over the years and we have a 'more is more' approach with a twist. There is usually a dominant colour, which for this year is red and is pronounced here in the berry spikes. Excess ornaments are placed in oversized clear vases to enhance the decor.

Finalement! I have been struggling with my normally ever present Christmas spirit this year. I had to dig deep to pull it out for my darling family. Meaning, hours of Christmas carols on iTunes Radio, a roaring fireplace, and mugs of hot chocolatey marshmallow goodness. I threw in a little prayer for good measure as well. My baby boy hugged me tight and said "Mommy, I love and appreciate all you do for me." How could I not have Christmas cheer after that? I just LOVE being his mommy. WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS!"
