Magic Marker Monday — A Little Bit of Christmas Nostalgia…


It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

I remember listening to re-aired radio episodes of The Cinnamon Bear when I was little during the weeks approaching Christmas and being absolutely transfixed by the fantastical adventures of Judy, Jimmy, Paddy O’Cinnamon and the Crazy-Quilt Dragon.

A few years ago, I found CD set of those old-time radio episodes and now my kiddos are getting to enjoy the same tradition.

I’m not quite sure how, but something magical happens when we pop that CD in, turn off the lights, gather around the fireplace and sit listening to the Cinnamon Bear in the firelight.

The kiddos drew Cinnamon Bear portraits this evening while they listened…

And I suddenly feel a little bit younger.
