A Merry Little Christmas

As I sit here looking at the grey morning out my window I'm in flashes and remembrance of the year that is swiftly coming to a close. This year has had it's ups and downs to say the least. This past month has been the total kicker and hardest month of the whole year. I can sit  here and ask the whys of it all but I won't, I simply won't. The New Year is coming at the end of the day and along with it  new opportunities and life experiences .

We did have a Merry Little Christmas. Struggle seems to pull my little tribe closer together like a tight knit blanket, and really that's all I want is for my family to be together and emanate love. So would you like to see how our holidays went?




Welcome to our  Christmas homestead.

I love the log bundle I made on the front porch, gives it a rustic feel ( even though we don't have a fireplace) 


We had to decorate ourselves as well. Here's my Holly-Jolly nails.


My youngest daughter wanted reindeer, my first time doing nail art on such a small surface.


My munchkin making healthy oatmeal cookies.


Santa didn't stay full very long, the kids snuck cookies left and right.


Art session and homemade wrapping paper all in one.



My son's hanging ornaments on the tree.


And the stockings were hung....


The girls making gingerbread cookies on Christmas Eve.


Gingerbread men and candy canes, they were thoroughly enjoy without frosting.


Christmas Eve tradition of drinking hot chocolate and watching "Polar Express".


Time to put out the cookies!


There were gifts for the children under the tree on Christmas morning.


Yay she found the Christmas pickle! New set of chalk was the prize.


From my family to yours hope you had a very Merry Christmas & A Blessed New Year.


*P.S  I'm looking out the window again, the sun  is out and the future looks bright.
