Happy Christmas season to you all! My goodness, it's been a busy month for us. I love it. My brother and his wife came to visit from sunny Florida and we had such a great time with them this weekend. They moved down there just about a year ago and we miss them tremendously, so it was such a treat to have time to catch up and hang out. I feel utterly blessed to have such a great family as my siblings and I are all really close. I just adore them immensely.
We put our tree up last weekend and made some gingerbread houses so I hope you enjoy the photos.
The girls are really getting into the Christmas spirit this year. Pumpkin Pie has been in full swing now for a few years...really "getting it" and reveling in the excitement of counting down to Christmas Eve. Little Button is feeding off of that excitement like a little sponge.
We always break out the eggnog for the first time during the tree decorating.
I scored this little ceremic gem at a garage sale, I love it!
We had one when I was young..vintage Christmas is what I live for..
Hopefully the cat doesn't try to eat the tinsel as we all know what happens with that...
Pumpkin Pie's Masterpiece.
J joined in on the fun and his is to the right.
My little A-frame, wasn't working out so well. :)
Little Button loved hers a little too much and it crashed down with the weight of all of her love :}
Yesterday I was fortunate enough to have the chance to spend the day in New York City with some friends and had just the most amazing time. I just can't describe the incredible energy I feel down there when I visit and it is especially buzzing with Christmas cheer this time of year. Magical, really.
Pictures to follow!
