coming soon. . .

So. . lots has happened in the past few weeks. . just like I am sure it has at your house too. . . it's a busy crazy fun time of year! I will post pictures and stories soon. . . . but first need to find that cord that puts my pictures from the camera into the computer (yes, I just said that. no, I don't know what that cord is called). Jonathan miiiight know where the cord is. Let's hope so.

Let's just say. . . I hope your Christmas was filled with love and joy. Mine was. It was short, but filled with love.

Here are two of my favorites. I really love Christmas. Every year I think I should leave my Christmas stuff out all year. . . because it makes me happy. But then I remember that I love the fall and getting to be outside in the spring (hard to find an upside to the crazy high temps of the summer though, but that's just me). Everything has it's season and seasons are what make it fun, right?

Today. . .I'm off work. And I need to get stuff done. But so far I've been lazy. Like really lazy. Need to get off my behind and clean, and wrap presents, and clean. The house is a wreck. Still have the box from the Christmas tree in a corner in the dinning room. That's embarrassing. . . anywhoo. . . off to clean. I hope.

It's cold. Like really cold. We didn't get the snow like everyone else. . . just ice while I drove to work yesterday. But it's cold. So I'm inside. I ventured out for a dentist appointment today, but that's it. All cuddled up on the sofa in a sweater and with a blanket. I like the cold. Hot cocoa and movies. . . it feels like winter. . . finally.

It's beginning to feel a lot like. . .

. . . well. . .let's be honest. It's felt like Christmas since November 1 when the music started at the store. I love Christmas. . . I'm not someone who is bothered by Christmas starting the 1st of November. I love decorating for Christmas. . . it was always a lot of fun growing up and this year it is super fun to decorate our own HOUSE for Christmas. Even Jonathan has enjoyed it. I'm not big on collections. . . however. . . I do collect a few things like nativity sets and these beautiful ornaments my mom buys us every year for Christmas. They are by Jay Strongwater. Beautiful no?

I decided even though I don't have enough plates yet to have them curve over the archway in the dinning room like I want. . . I might as well put up the ones I have and start enjoying them. So here they are.
