Yipppeee, it's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house. I have loved baking, decorating, and getting ready for company, family, church party at our house, Santa....ok I'm Santa...and everything else! Hahaha...I get up early shower, put tons of makeup on (to cover the circles under my eyes-not much sleep) and run 90 miles an hour probably like many of you trying to get everything done! Are we having fun yet?
I'd like to go ice skating with my honey, Christmas shopping, Starbucking....big smile!
The 25th is almost here! These little guys are getting ready, they have their Christmas sweaters on, sitting by the fire(place).
And it snowed at our house!!!! Oh my, our kids came home (so thankful to God for that) and everything is covered with white.
See the little sled...I won't fit on that in a million years! Not with my (happy) self!
I just love the snow....of course where we live (in the mountains above Palm Springs) it gets really cold and really hot!
Wish you all could stop by for warm cookies, apple cider, coffee and our favorite creamer....hot tea...whatever you wish and we could visit and share funny stories! Or you could even take a nap! I know I would love to!
This is my sweet mom, me, my two (pregnant nieces) and my wonderful sister in love at a baby shower. Family is so precious to me....you realize your time is finite (limited) with those you love and it is important to record the memories.
Precious family and friends
Precious moments
Precious memories
Precious Christmas!
Blessings to all of you!

Holy toledo girl....you out did yourself for Christmas! I love all the framed vintage prints...where o where did you find the polka dot (green/white) paper that you used on your sign on your hutch? I love it all. I have that same little white bird. The quilt on your bed rd/white..is that the one from Jc penneys? I have been eyeing that wanting it. If so is it a true red? So neat you got snow to add to all the merriment. We have had one snow storm after another here. Merry CHRISTmas! Cherry
