what fun!

Most years my motto is , if it isn't up by December 1st then its not going up! I mean we work our little tails off trying to get our homes into this winterscape atmosphere...surely we need time to sit back and enjoy it right?
I do love those mornings when I actually have no place I have to be and I can simply sip my coffee and enjoy everything.
However, crazy weekends such as this last one are equally as fulfilling!


These are some of the shots from our living room. The girls always say "now which one is the living room?" I guess by definition the living room should be the space in which much of the actual living goes on....however in our home its simply the room without the tv!
I use a table top tree and place all the small glittered cottages & glittered wendy addison treasures.
ps-I received a couple of emails regarding the bottle brush trees. Many of the ones I have collected are Cody Foster. I usually pick these up either on ebay or www.bayberrycove.com - or try www.christmastraditions.com .










6 nutcracker performances
1 christmas tree up & decorated
1 party full of 16 cheerleaders
1 weekend full of fun!!

Paige, the lucious colors of your Christmas decorations is simply scrumptious! It's nice to see other holiday color combinations besides the traditional red & green.

TFS the information on the two shopping places. I did a little damage there today. I had been looking for those items and had no idea of where to get them...

Hi Paige,
Beautiful pictures of the ballerinas made my day! Then, I heard Third Day's King of Glory (one of Rodger's favorite songs)...that made my day even better. Thank you for making a busy day so special.

Paige,
How proud you must be of your beautiful daughter! Gracie took ballet for about 4 years. I loved all of the wonderful costumes. However, she gave up ballet and chose field hockey & lacrosse....at least they wear cute kilts.

Happy Thursday. Cammy
