Hoping You All Had A Merry Christmas!

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! This year we feel so very blessed with our family and friends.God blessed us with two beautiful grandchildren. They have bought so much joy to our life.

A small Christmas tree in our sun room.

I am thinking I will just leave this all up for a while.

The old mantle came out of my grandmother's farm house. I made the burlap stockings and used old vintage lace that my mom had. I just can not get enough burlap.

I brought in an old birdbath to use for a center piece. I have always wanted to do this.

I love sitting out here at night with the Christmas lights on. I am thinking I will leave the wreath up, I will remove the star and add a wood initial in the middle.

I added some lights .

I found this star at Canton, it looks so old fashion and is the perfect touch to this burlap wreath.

Maddie's New Bling

We added some bling to Madeline's Nursery. This was a chandelier that I had, I painted it black and covered little shades to match her room. Every girl needs a little bling in her life, even if she is only a week old.

We are finished with Madeline's nursery. My sweet mom is so talented. She can sew anything. Stephanie, myself and my mom made everything. We had such a good time.

The bedding is so soft, I know she is going to love it.

We had this old rocker that was not being used ,Tony painted it and my mom recovered the cushions. I can not wait to sit in here and rock her.

Ok, the fish hanging on the side of the chair was a shower gift from my sister-in-law. Tony is a big fisherman. so Madeline has her own little fishing bag when she goes fishing with her dad. This was his favorite gift to her.

This was a shower gift from my other sister-in-law and Stephanie loved it. Madeline is just waiting on our little Madeline Grace to get here.

Stephanie is due on November 5th, we are so anxious to meet our new little girl.

I love all the pink . I know we are going to be in trouble, there are just so many cute things for girls.

Uri's First Birthday

Our sweet little birthday boy.

Lisa and Josh did such a good job of making this a special memory of Uri.

Uri had his own cake.

Lots of good food to eat.

The sweetest little clown came from Moody Gardens in Galveston and painted all the kids faces and she also did magic tricks.

Uri was a puppy.

I love her pink hair!

Lisa had crafts for all the kids to make.

They had a cute water play area. All the kids brought bathing suits.

Treats for everyone to take home. They thought of everything.

The table was so cute. I loved watching all the kids go up to the table and see their eyes get so big looking at all the fun stuff.

These were the best little cup cakes. The one you see with red sprinkles were red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. I could not stop eating them.

This was such a fun day watching Uri celebrate his first birthday.

The table was beautiful. Three delicious cakes. One was strawberry, one was lemon curd and one was vanilla.

My daughter-in-law, Lisa did all the table and food you see. It was all wonderful, and looked so pretty.

Little marshmallow baby bottles.

A New Typewriter

I got the cutest typewriter this weekend. My guy and I went out to some little antique shops. I saw so many neat things. I fell in love with this little typewriter.

It actually works. Who knows, I might just sit down and type a letter today.

The only bad thing is it does not have spell check and that is a bad thing for me. Computers spoil us.

I moved a little desk into my bedroom and set up this little area, a fun new space.

Flowers from the garden, a few favorite magazines and a cozy chair , I just might be here a while.
