Christmas 2013



Hello!  I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

No, I didn't fall off the edge of the earth (at least I don't think so).  I have been taking a much needed vacation during the holidays to "recharge".   I don't know about you, but I had so much to do and felt somewhat  (a lot) overwhelmed.  But, as usual, everything came together and we had a very merry and blessed Christmas with all our family.  I still think my batteries could charge a little more. lol.

Sharing Christmas from our house to yours.


Na-Na and Pop with Grands:  (Back L to R):  Zachary and Teale,
Bottom:  Lake and Saylor.


From left to right:  Jay and Mikki, Mark and Darla, Jordan and Jenna.


Entryway all ready for Santa and his sleigh.

Dining Room

A stocking was hung in the Entryway with care in case Old Saint Nick couldn't make it down our chimney with its really hot air!   ( I really like the way the D.R. chandelier and Christmas
tree show up in the background.)

Mugs all ready for hot chocolate and plenty of candy canes!  The little Mr. and Mrs. Snow people on top were my Mom and Dad's and hold a very special place of honor!

Candy everywhere!  Easy centerpiece for Kitchen island.

Easy and simple decorations for D.R. table.  Floated candles, cranberries and greenery in
a tall glass container and placed on each side of the tree ( what lovely ambiance when everything
 is all lit up at night).
 Centerpiece on the kitchen table consisted of a faux cranberry wreath with a cake stand
set in the middle. A clear, fluted bowl nestled on top filled with water and
real cranberries with floating white candles.  My sister gave me this idea and
I just love it!

Hope you enjoy.  I will be posting some more in the next week.  Come back 
and visit.  Love to have you.

Blessings and may everyone have a Happy, Healthy and Blessed New Year!!
