A very merry Christmas eve & morning!

Thank you for the reindeer food, Aunt Jean & Aunt Marion. Chris and Josie had fun sprinkling food on the front yard Christmas eve. We're still loving our Christmas snow, Nana!

I found these Christmas lights at my favorite mission thrift store and gave them a gaudy/glittery makeover. I thought Santa might appreciate this "special" setting for his milk and cookies.
Santa had to be extra sneaky this year. Josie fell asleep during our 5pm Children's Christmas Eve Mass and bedtime was a bit delayed. This was taken before she fell asleep at church.

Despite the extra late bedtime, both girls were wanting to be up at 6:15am....yawn!

Thank you for all your generosity this year, Santa!


I thought you might appreciate seeing how
Josie's special dollhouse came together.




Hope your Christmas day is full of joy my friends!


May you be surrounded by cherished family
and scrumptious food today.

XOXO

Kim,
Thanks for your visit!!
I will not even be able to start to take down Christmas until the 6,7 and 8th of Jan. when I am off. Now everything does not come down. I actually turn 6 trees into Valentine's Day trees. And I keep up things that are wintery. The Podwer Room gets all the Snow Buddy Christmas things removed and then I add Valentine's Day Snow Buddies to it. This way, I am not taking everything down all at once.I find it easier that way...
By the way, I loved the doll house!
Hugs,
Deb

It looks like everyone loved their gifts! It looks like Luna thinks the dollhouse is the perfect size for her! My cat tries to climb in my dollhouse too. From time to time I find the little mice that live in the house down at the bottom of the steps, and know that Katerina has been playing in there again.
