Christmas Eve

Kinsey and Uri kept us entertained.
We have new family to introduce, Lisa and Urijah Alford join the Christmas tradition. Tony and Stephanie were in Michigan last year. Kasey and Kinsey were not able to there last year. We were thrilled that we were all able to be together.

This is our Christmas Eve celebration with friends and family. This has been a tradition for many years and something I always look forward to. We are so happy Ed was able to be here, he is one month post-op open heart surgery. He looks great and we are so thankful he is feeling better.

Merry Christmas !

I hope you have all had a Merry Christmas! It is such a blessing to be able to spend time with family and friends. I hope we all pause and think about what Christmas is about. The birth of Jesus and what that means to each of us in our life.

More pictures of Robin Roger's beautiful open house. Thank-you for sharing your home with us.

Her living room, with burlap stockings. She should be featured in a magazine, she has such a way with decorating. She was so sweet to let me take pictures.

This is the dinning room.

So much fun stuff to look at.
Everything looks so clean with all the white and silver.

I love the simple things, small sprigs of the pine.

Kitchen area

This is the kitchen island.
I love this little lamp with the white roses.

A pretty Christmas tree.

Cute pillows.

I love this bird bath full of silver Christmas ornaments.

A Beautiful Christmas Open House

This was a Christmas open house I got to visit with my best friend, she knew I would love it and she was so right. This was the home of Robin Rogers in Overton. She is so talented. This is a picture of the kitchen. Everything was so pretty everywhere you looked.

Sprigs of pine sitting in the window.

This was a beautiful Christmas Tree in the living room just as you walked in the front door. I love the burlap ribbon.
There were just so many things to see. I will share more of the living room tomorrow. Thank you Carol for this treat!

I miss him already, I had to come home and go back to work for a week and then we are out for the holidays, Yea.

Guess where I have been? Babysitting our sweet little grandbaby. I have had so much fun the last three days. My heart just melts when he smiles and laughs at me. Thank you so much Josh and Lisa for asking me to babysit. Steph and Tony came over and got in on the action, and my brother, Randy and sister-in-law Di came over and spent time with us. Just one big party. Urijah entertained us all.

Pink Roses

Stay warm and have a happy fun filled weekend. They are full of blooms, maybe they will survive the frost.

I wish you could smell this rose, they smell wonderful.

We are supposed to get a light freeze tonight, so I thought I would enjoy the last of my roses.

Jefferson, Texas

Jefferson is such a neat place to spend the day. There are antique stores, junk stores, fun places to eat, and even an old General Store that is a must if you visit. In December they have an open house at several of the old historic home. horse carriage rides, warm apple cider, and a Christmas train ride. If you have not been to Jefferson you are missing a treat. This is one of my favorite homes.

Don't you just love all the cute fall decorations? It is fun just to drive around and look at all the beautiful homes.

Just sharing a few homes in Jefferson, Texas all decked out for Halloween.

New kitchen bar and bar stools

My new used bar stools that I got on Craig's list. I have been looking for a long time for this very bar stool and found them last weekend in Houston. We happened to be in the area and we stuffed them into my car. They were a greenish color, but I love red. So with a couple of coats of paint I have two beautiful fun new bar stools. Storage on one side with a old red frame and cute little cherry plates.
My guy built a new bar for our kitchen. Cookbooks on one end with a old window as the door.
