Or, a cute baby in the house...
Or, pillow pets. What is it about pillow pets? I am so attracted to them, and secretly want one of my own. (I know you think they are cute too, so hush)
I am so grateful that this year all of our families were healthy enough to be together after many years of at least one person being very sick for Christmas. This year it was (almost) sneeze free, and for that I felt very fortunate to be in the company of our sibs and families this year. Blessings abound. And, Christmas Eve Tello Taco's too!
Jeremy got a guitar for Christmas. My dad, showing him a thing or two. Stairway to Heaven, here we come..
Pot holder city. Homemade from my sweet little girl.
And then it was back home again to set the table and prep for Christmas dinner.
A place for everyone, and everyone in their place.
Add family, food, pleasant conversation, hearty laughter and you've got yourself a very fine holiday.
And then it's back to a quiet house, and another year has gone by.
Tipping my glass to all of you and wishing you and your families a great year ahead. 2012, can you believe it? Be safe tonight, drive carefully, and Happy New Years!
Oh, and watch out. That Christmas Ninja has a knack for popping up unexpectedly................
