A Joyful Christmas and a Blessed New Year...


Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all!  I decided just to post some pictures of the holiday tidings around our house.  Life has been so busy here - I am sure most of you can relate... 


We did not have a white Christmas here this year - just lots of rain.  So the girls took it upon themselves to cover the wall going upstairs in homemade snowflakes...




Most of the ornaments on our tree are either hand made or very old.  They range from home made Girl Scout ornaments (circa 1981) to embroidered ones that I made a few years ago, to bulbs that the girls helped out with just last year.


Finally I would like to introduce you to Red Girl, the newest member of our family (she was a little embarrassed about the sweater, so we only make her wear it once in a while).  She is a five month old half German Short Haired Pointer and half English Setter.  She is VERY energetic and is already pointing birds.  You can just imagine how crazy our Christmas has been!  I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a Blessed New Year!

Merry Christmas to you.
Ditto on the no snow only rain here in NY. However we did not use creative ingenuity to deal with the disappointment; just complained a lot. A dog for Christmas, talk about excitement!
Hope you have a great and refreshing New Year.
Cheers

Hi Cassie! Happy New Year! Love getting a sneak peak at your Christmas tree and beautiful decorations, as well as your new pup!

We here in Wisconsin have also been without snow up to this point in the season, so your paper snowflakes made my day!

Oh, congrats on your new girl! we got a new puppy a couple of weeks ago too :) life with pups sure is interesting, especially when you're used to a nice quiet and lazy older dog :)
glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday!~
