It's A Snow Baby, Baby!....


Look at what the Christmas Faerie brought me!!! I am so in love with my Snow Baby from Lori! She is so detailed right down to the woolen texture on her coat sleeves and hem. Just perfect!!! I purchased her at Heather's Speckled Egg Holiday Gift Show here. And the sweet Christmas box with vintage wallpaper and vintage tinsel and bottle brush trees and the little bunnies? LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much Sweet Lori, Love, Jamie

I finally managed to get the house decorated for Christmas! But, I can brag a little and say that I am totally done with my shopping? It's a first, believe me! I am usually still out on Christmas Eve frantically looking for something:) So, here is my Christmas mantle with some of my lovely old books thrown in for good measure:)


The boys and I went to a Gingerbread decorating class last Saturday and here are their sweet houses. David did his all by himself and I "helped" James:) Oh, AND I let the boys decorate the tree this year all by themselves. I strung the lights and they hung the ornaments. I had to put my inner Martha Stewart in a gag and straight jacket to do it, but it was worth it to see how excited they were:)

Notice how the kisses seem to be losing their tops? Oh, and the BITE taken out of the roof! I must have mousies:)
