I can’t believe that it is already December 30th. I know everyone says that, the holiday always goes by so fast! It was a fun Christmas day this year. The kids just kept going and going. We were able to just sit back and watch them have fun.
I thought I would share just a bit with you of what it was like around our house.
The kids decorated some cookies while I did some baking. My husband is usually in charge of this activity because I would want totally take over. They make such a mess and end up eating so much of the icing (who can blame them). But, I love the end result, and so does Santa :)
The banister in my house is hung with care and my husband’s own Christmas stocking. This is the one that his mom made for him when he was a little boy (almost 50 years ago). The one next to it I made when we were first married. I put a vintage sparkly tree pin on it just yesterday. And the stocking on the far left was also made by my mother-in-law for our first baby, who is now 10. I strung the little button garland myself a few years ago. It took a few nights to do, but I just love the little added color.
This picture I took just this morning. It has been foggy here and I popped outside and this poinsetta looked like it was covered in glitter. I looked closer and saw that it was a little morning dew. I felt like it was just a little present from nature for me to see. And now you too! Happy New Year friends!!
