Seasonal delights . . .

I scrounged up some more photos of my Christmas decorations.  I didn't want to leave you with the impression that I was a total Grinch this year by skimping on the holiday merriment!  Compared to the boxes and boxes (and boxes and boxes) of Christmas decorations I own, I really didn't put much out.  I think I could lend enough decorations to enough houses to have my own Holiday Homes tour.  Hmm, do you think a Christmas decorations only garage sale would be a hit?

Isn't this wreath yummy?  Got it from Dream in Cream.  I'm making a small one for a friend.  Very time consuming but so luscious!

A pair of angel wings, waiting for a bell to ring.  Remember?  Clarence in A Wonderful Life.  Speaking of movies, how come A Christmas Story hasn't been on tv yet?  My favorite!  Will there be an all day marathon of it on Christmas Day?

I won the cute little signs from Castle and Cottage.  Paula makes beautiful things!  She has a tutorial for a tree banner that is on my list of things to create.

A forest of the bleached brush trees. 

What kind of grandma would I be if I didn't share photos of the munchkins!  It only took about 50 snaps of the camera to get one decent picture.  Squirmy should be their middle names!

Of course the little ones like the paper better than the gift!

Who in their right mind would give a 4-year old a complete drum set?  We listened to many concerts of banging sonatas.  The J-man's very favorite present!  I sure am glad the drums went home with him.  Some day, this grandma will buy a ticket to his rock band concert, throw myself into the mosh pit and nod my head silly over his music!

These were one of my gifts!  l.o.v.e.

Well my lovlies, I'm sending good wishes to you all and thank you for another year of friendship, encouragement and inspiration.  May God bless you during this wondrous season!

Connie....I LOVE the Christmas pictures you shared with us! Every ONE is perfect! And, I had to chuckle when I saw the grandson playing the drums and thinking of you jumping into the mosh pit! I am right there with you, but mine is almost 2! He got a HUGE jumpy thing, with a fan and all that....his pawpaw went over on Wednesday and put it up! He jumped until he was silly, and then they took it down. Now isn't that HEAVEN???
Merry Christmas my friend....

Hi Connie! Everything looks so beautiful and I have to tell you, my brother got his first drum set at about that age...he's now in his early 40's and plays in a rock band!! Merry Christmas to you & your beautiful family!

I love your antique Santa in the jar, the chenile snowmen and your other lovelies. And what adorable grandchildren. I know all too well having to take several photos to get one good one. But it paid off as you were able to finally get a great pic. Merry Christmas Connie!

You are funny, Connie! I'd like to see the grandmother of one of the current bands throw herself into a mosh pit! : ) Your grandchildren are just adorable and that sleeping one you posted on Christmas Day, is our moment to look at them adoringly. I love A Christmas Story, too, and I believe they did do a marathon. I got so tired of waiting for it on television I bought the DVD 2 years ago! They don't show the movies like they used to several years ago. I thought if I saw Elf one more time I might be physically ill!
