Getting ready for Christmas

We were shopping today, found a great deal on rain gear from Coastal Farm and Ranch, while in line paying for our gear, I heard a little girl behind me, there with her dad and a brother or two, excitedly chattering about the stuffed fish on the wall above us. "Look Daddy! A Shark! He's smiling! I like smiling sharks!" To which I turned around and said, "so do I!". Actually the shark had a rather large set of teeth, and an open mouth, so I was delighted to see that rather than assuming the big bad fish was going to eat her, she simply assumed he was smiling at her. That is a child who is at ease with her world.

And angel candleholder bought today. One angel has a wing missing, I figure she is the one who flies in circles.

This is a giant marshmallow, for our homemade cocoa and marshmallows
