the cookies and milk are placed on the table, the reindeer food is on the lawn, the kids are dressed in their new christmas jammies and the last we checked, santa was in south dakota.

spent a sunday afternoon baking sugar cookies for game night.
i am pretty sure they had more fun posing for pictures than making the cookies.
doesn't matter...they are super cute (and available) and the cookies were a hit.
i love you guys! nicole...glad your part of the family!

with friends is a great way to celebrate the holidays. when sissy was little we hosted a cookie party each year and now that the little princess is in kindergarten the tradition continues.

i hope i didn't keep you waiting... it's chilly tonight.
no i'm not baking, it's a candle (they're my favorite).
come and sit down and i'll start the fire.
if your cold, go ahead and grab a quilt.
in the corner there are a few of my favorite things.
quilts, candy canes, old spools and a pillow that i found here.
and you have to check out the advent box, i bought it a while back and have treasured it ever since. i believe you can still buy them here.
this figure by august moon, has special meaning to me. it was given to me 2 years ago when i had 3 children...now i have 4, i wonder if i can add to it.
don't you just love the holidays. hot chocolate, fires, candles and a peaceful feeling.
i love garlands and snowmen.
i love these figures, this one is called "snow queenie", quite suiting for the queen herself.
this is our tree. the kids decorate it.
this is my favorite ornament.
come into the kitchen and i'll make some hot chocolate.
i keep my small christmas plates in this vintage dish rack.
have a seat and don't worry about spilling on the quilt, the kids do all the time...
i love candles...candles, candles, candles...
come with me, and i'll show you my room, i'd show you the other bedrooms, but i'm quite sure it would ruin your virtual experience.
my dear friend jill made the framed dresden plate. LOVE it, and i made the snowman candle holder years ago. it's still a favorite.
oh, and you must see some of "bob's" handiwork. he updated the bathroom not too long ago.
we love him.
well, that's it. thanks for coming by. this time next year we may be in a different house (keep your fingers crossed) and i am so glad you were able to share these memories with me. have a merry christmas and remember...
represent Him well...
