Just another time to love...

Coming home...





A corner re-created...



Imagining the table set...




Gifts waiting to be given...



And Christmas in the air...






My joy is not in doing things big but just making each bit count, loving now what I love all year round!

While I don't need much help getting in the spirit these days, Tristan's Christmas program is Thursday, Light Up Our Town is Friday and a Christmas Singing Trees celebration at church is Saturday.

Find your spirit, whatever & where ever it is!

KDLOST said...

That's so serene! It makes me want to curl up by the fire with cider. :) Sighhh. The most wonderful time of the year.

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

Everything is gorgeous! You put me to shame. My tree isn't even up yet. But with a 18 month old I am not sure it will have much of a chance when I do decide to put it up!

Jen said...

Thank you. You are so helping me find mine. You home is so beautiful. I bet the pictures don't do it justice.

Posh And Trendy Living Frugal said...

Gorgeous!!!
You put me to shame.. I don't have even one thing up yet and I have no escuse for it.

Lorina said...

Wow.. beautiful pictures. I am jealous!

Baby Favorite said...

Would it be too much to ask for you to build a wing onto your house so I can live there? What do you mean you barely know me?

Beautiful... just beautiful!

I love your SNOWMEN!

I have only brought out about 45 snowmen so far this year! (I have about 300?!) If I bring them out in baby steps my husband doesn't seem to notice so much!
