Two more days until Christmas! Can you believe it? It's been rather cold and rainy here in the Valley lately. Unfortunately all of the snow is gone and it's just wet here now. We had a blast with the snow though, and The Bean played in it almost every day. With the weather turning crummy we've been taking advantage of our Amazon Prime TV and binge-watching everything from Stranger Things to LOST. Little hint, our new kitten is named "Eleven." We are loving Stranger Things and can't wait for season two. With watching LOST we are still on season one about to hit season two. It's engaging and I honestly think shows are better after all of the hype from them dies down. Watching LOST makes me think of the line from This is 40 where the daughter has watched a lot of the episodes and the parents tell her it will melt her brain...
As we are watching LOST this scene was going through my head. I don't think we will be able to watch 100 episodes in five weeks, but with the cold and rain coming down, who knows. For now, here are the things that made this week great!
We had a little bit of snowfall and then a lot of snowfall in the first part of this week. It's all gone now and just rain is falling, but it was a lot of fun while it was here and made for some lovely pictures.

2. Tree Star
We wanted something different this year, but wanted something eye-catching. We figured this stellated dodecahedron was perfect!
I started getting things ready for the new year and with this Polestar family planning calendar I will stay on top of my A-game for 2017.
4, Winter Solstice
Not sure what everyone else did for the winter solstice, but we lit some candles and enjoyed a quiet night in. These candles are handmade from pure beeswax and will be available for purchase in the SNS shop in 2017.
Our holiday cards came this week and I always getting super excited to send them out! We used a photo from our Trees of Mystery trip when family was here at Thanksgiving. Our holiday card receivers are just going to love them!
• Minimal thought for this week:
Have a great weekend and a fantastic Christmas!
