Today, after her classes, my girl heads home! Her small school works on trimesters, so their break at Christmas isn't as long as a university's.
Tim has 5 more days of work (including this weekend) then he's on vacation! His birthday is Christmas Eve and so we will go to lunch for his birthday, and spend the rest of the day together with the family. In the evening we will open our stockings and then watch The Nativity Story. It's our family tradition.
The kids and I spent part of our day with friends yesterday. I just love a visit at Christmas time! My friend Amy has great decorating style and her home is warm and inviting. I took this photo from my seat on the couch.
Aren't her Pottery Barn stockings great?
She gave me a gift she knew I'd been wanting for years.
Isn't it darling? I have wanted a Nativity set for Kamryn, and future grandchildren could interact with, without worry about it breaking. This set fits the bill! Perfect for babies, toddlers and preschoolers! Kamryn said "This angel has stars, so it is the Star Angel." Thank you Amy, love you!
If you didn't see Cheryl's wonderful home tour, you should! Click here to see it.
Vee shared yesterday how she was inspired by Cheryl's poinsettia in a crock, so she put hers in a tin. They both look great, so that inspired me to take the green foil off of mine and plunk it into a white metal bucket I have!
I also added red plaid ribbon! It looks so much better!
Tim's Mom arrived from Florida Wednesday evening so we popped over to his brother's house last evening to say hi! I love this photo of Grammy and Kamryn. It was taken in very poor lighting, but you can still see their happy faces!
Grammy will be coming to our house in the evening on Christmas Day and will stay with us for the rest of her visit. Tim's vacation means that he will get a whole week with her, without him having to leave to go to work!
We also will be visiting friends when she is with us, and I know she'll enjoy it. She loves people.
I have a few gifts to wrap still, and a few things to pick up for the birthday boy. But then I am done!
I have a busy day ahead so I must go. I'm loving the Christmas season! How about you?
