A Free “Martin & Sylvia” story for December!

Christmas is always a festive time at Martin and Sylvia’s house.  Family and friends come together to enjoy candle-lit walks, snowy days, and all the fun and festivities of this time of year.  There’s cooking and baking, there’s decorating and making, and of course there’s the picking of the family tree.

In celebration of this magical time of year, we wanted to share a brand-new Martin & Sylvia story with readers of Rhythm of the Home!

It’s called: “Living Room Nutcracker“.

This year, Martin is invited to attend the local production of “The Nutcracker” with Momma.  It’s an exciting first!  But as it’s a long performance, it’s decided that five-year-old Sylvia is too young to join.  And oh is she disappointed!  Martin makes it up to his sister by promising to bring the Nutcracker right back to their own living room — and he does, in a full family performance!

For more wonderful ideas for Winter and the Holidays, be sure to explore the entire Rhythm of the Home site!  It’s filled with inspiring articles and luscious ideas for things to make and do.

    We just love your stories! Of course we are big Martin and Sylvia fans and love to listen at lunch time, and post nap time for some calm and quiet, but we also take the duo on our trips to see family. Thanks so much and wishing you and your family a wonderful holday season!
