It's beginning to look a lot like.........

Happy Sunday Everyone.....

I was sitting with our son the other day and he asked me why we haven't started decorating for Christmas....I told him it was early.....and not to worry ....we will be decorating before you know it.....It is so sweet how my love of the Holidays has rubbed off on this wee little man.....he really makes me love the Holidays even more....so great to have someone around with the same love for the holidays as me....

You see....I love love love Christmas time.....it is my favorite time of year...
Spending time with Family ,decorating , Listening to Christmas songs on the radio, baking treats ...it is never too early for me....I love everything about it....

So this week....our son inspired me to start thinking about the Holidays and this illustration came to life....It is my Sunday Sketch submission this week.....so join in and share some of your work with Sophia and her Sunday Sketches weekly link up......

I am off to enjoy a Family Breakfast......then a blog hop......and finally back in the Studio tonight to colour this piece and create a few snowmen!!! This whole turn the clock back thing makes me think I got up way too early for a Sunday....lol.....but gaining an hour is always a good thing!!!

Happy Sunday and Happy Creating....

Hugs
Diana

Really? Cole already asked for Christmas decorations? Good for him. Celebrate Christmas. Celebrate the holidays. We need more children like Cole and mothers like you! I love Christmas. It's my favorite month!!!

Yes CES!!!! he is a man after my own heart!!!! I love that he has the same thoughts as me!!! Brad is not too thrilled when they start playing Christmas songs on the radio in November....but Cole and I love it!!!!

Ces said...

Heheheheh! I can see the three of you. What a lovely scene though. Your husband will eventually just give in. How can he resist such joyful celebration? That's wonderful. Have a great week!

Tu as un petit garçon tellement adorable ma chère Diana. Profite bien de ces doux moments de partage. Le temps passe si vite...
Bravo pour cette dernière création.
j'aime la manière que tu as travaillé leurs bois... Très original et si tendre...
Je te fais de gros bisous...
La semaine du 14 novembre, je pars quelques jours. dans un premier temps, je vais à Honfleur, puis je me rends chez mes enfants dans le Finistère Nord.
Gros bisous encore.
