HoHoHo Merry Christmas!

Although I've promised a couple of faculty that I'd be available for email questions, I'm officially on break from the University until January 3rd!!  I might be taking a vacation from work, but I'll still be blogging. 
We have extended family to visit.

And I haven't attempted any Christmas baking.
I've even got a few more gifts that need to be purchased.
None of the gifts are wrapped.
Let's hope I can remember where I stashed everything!
 Enjoy this Christmas Season.
It seems to be moving way too fast!
Slow down, Christmas.  Slow down!
XOXO

Oh! So many cute little displays!
I'm with you...I have things to buy, nothing is wrapped, cards to send, and cookies to bake. Yet, here I sit on the couch!
I'm trying to decide if I should head out and do some shopping. But it's soooo much warmer here on the couch, and the SNOW is on it's way again! Ahhh!
Love Emma's little hand print.

Enjoy your break! Woo Hoo! Have a great time with your family and we'll look forward to more posts! I LOVE that red reindeer you have in one of the photos! I had a hard time finding one of Caitlin's gifts when I was wrapping! I finally remembered I had hid some in a suitcase! It was almost Christmas Day scavenger hunt!

Christmas is coming up fast, Kim. I can't believe where this whole Fall into Winter thing has gone....wow LOVE the doll house under the tree. Everything just looks so cute. I wanted to ask you- are those characters in your header celluloid? I think I spelled that right. They are just darling whatever they are- xo Diana

Time does move along at a pretty good clip doesn't it? I love your dollhouse under the tree!!! Too cute!! A dollhouse is number one on my list to find next year! I'm planning on baking this weekend too!

Such beautiful photos in this post. I love the one of Emma and her handprint ornament. We are experiencing frightful weather conditions, which is forcing us to slow down! I hope you and those visiting are safe. Happy vacation!

Love everything under that tree, Kim! I hope you're enjoying your time off and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

Courtney said...

Enjoy your break! I think I have finally finished shopping, I have just a few more things to wrap and today I have been working on holiday baking.

I agree, the season has flown by, and I'm not ready for it to be Christmas already! I absolutely love your ledge with all the Christmas d├ęcor- what a wonderful place to display your amazing collection- I especially like the three choir singers up there. And putting doll beds and dollhouses in front of the tree- what a good idea- why didn't I think of that???
Merry Christmas, friend!! And also to your sweet family!
