Christmas Wishes

Better late than never, here are some pictures of what Christmas looks like at my house this year.

The Snowmen I've started collecting.

The girls' bedroom doors.
This silver tray by the front door holds this years Christmas cards.

The pretty and bright paper chain Emma and I made for her room out of scrapbook paper.

The glass cloche on the study shelves.

I'm not sure what happened to this Christmas season. It flew past in a flurry of preparations and excitement, I suppose. I was really looking forward to relishing these days before the big day arrived. I enjoy the days before, the most. I love the anticipation of what is to come. I love the time spent enjoying my family and the peace of the season after all of the shopping, wrapping and baking is done. I wish for all of you a wonderful holiday filled with gifts. The gift of love, of happiness, of friends, of good health, of dreams fulfilled and of dreams yet to dream. I have already received all of these gifts, so it matters not what I open on Christmas morning. I am blessed to have found each of you and this new world that has opened my eyes and mind to so many new things. Thank you all for being my gifts. I hope I can return the favor one day.

  10. Merry Christmas Jen!

    Your photos are beautiful...I would have loved one of those little houses that you have under your glass dome, but they don't seem to be available in the UK.

    Have Fun!
