Christmas Blur...

The only way to describe the month of December would be that it was just a colorful blur. It was full of...



love, family, cuddles and kisses,





lot's of rich, yummy, fattening foods, endless cups of hot chocolate,



warm nights by the fire, games and laughter,






screaming, happy children and trips down memory lane,



and feelings of thankfulness for the warm house that enveloped us and the happy bodies that made this Christmas so sparkly.

You're forgetting all the vomit! :) Glad to hear that you had such a wonderful blur! Love to you and your family. I hope you have the best new year possible! Big kiss, my blonde twin!

Yeah- I tried to push the vomit sicky memories way down deep inside. Plus the fact that family brought sickness and spread it..grrrrr. I am trying to focus on the positive..teehee. Annabelle has double ear infections as we speak. (rolling eyes) it never ends. Have a lovely New Year too my sweets :)

Glad to hear you had a happy christmas! But its nice to settle down and get back into the swing of things...How did the grandmothers like their paintings?

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

Oh Heather...I have been meaning to email you about that. They LOVE them. It was such a wonderful surprise and they adore them. Thanks for helping me give them kick A presents :)Everyone was ooohing and awwing apparently. The England granparents got the one with the string of hearts and they sure love it. My mom and Dad were here and I got to see them open it.
I sure love my ornaments too ;)
