My Christmas

I hope everybody had a wonderful holiday.  I am a little envious I'm not where it's snowing, although I'm happy to be safe and sound at home and not a stranded traveler.  We're slowly making our way through piles of wrapping paper.  I didn't make a big fuss over wrapping gifts this year, but I do love this ribbon I found:
On Christmas Eve, Stella pretended to be a reindeer, wearing my outfit from when I was 5 years old.
Christmas Morning:
Christmas Brunch at my mom's house:
I LOVE my mom's tables.  This was one from two years ago:
This little one had lots of fun!
But I think I need a long winter's nap!

Glad you had a wonderful Christmas! Your Mom does out do herself with her pretty tables. Setting the table for a get together is always one of my favorite parts. Protecting it from flying balls and Nerf gun bullets, not so much! :) I suppose that sort of thing doesn't happen with a daughter!! Happy Monday to you!

I'm in love with so many things in this post. The '78 NM shirt, your mother's pink and green table and Stella's fabulous Santa smocked dress. I need your southern children store contacts. Michigan doesn't have enough for my baby nephew and that child is in desperate need of something smocked. :) Looks like you all had a wonderful time! xoxo

Honey thank you for all the beautiful pictures~you are not only a wonderful blogger but such a good photographer!!!
The holidays were so much fun this year~Stella really makes it all come to life! Nothing cuter than watching Stella open up gifts~going to bed with her new high heels was the tree topper for me!!!
