All is Merry, All is Bright

 We are soo excited that Santa is coming tonight!

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care....

 Oh no!  Our elves, "Little Red" and "Little Red Junior," are sad to leave us. They go back to the North Pole with Santa tonight. It has been so much fun looking for them each morning.
 A note from them.
 Here's where we'll leave some milk and cookies and a note for Santa tonight.  The girls baked some special cookies for him!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

 Merry Christmas!  I've been away on a trip to South America.  We visited Colombia, The Panama Canal, Ecuador, Peru, and Chile.  We also went to Machu Picchu.  It was wonderful!  Now I'm home and happy to be with my family again and enjoying all my Christmas decorations.                                                       

 My girls decorated most of my tree this year.  They did a great job and had such a fun time doing it together.  As they put up each ornament they'd say, "Oh, I remember this one!" Or "I remember making this one!"        

                            Santa hanging in the family room.
                                                                                                                                                                                       Even the little chair gets a pillow.

A cute Christmas tin!


   More Santas on the mantel.

       Brooke is growing!  This will be her first Christmas.  I wonder what Santa will bring her?
