Twas The Week Before Christmas

This week we are celebrating Christmas with our family. The kids are having a blast with the snow, the pets, and our extended family.
It’s a nice needed break for all of us.

My youngest has become fast friends with grandpa’s dog. It’s so cute to watch the dog follow him around.

What is it about an Auntie and the hair?
I try in vain to get a braid in my daughter’s hair. The answer is always ‘no’.
When the aunt suggests a braid, the answer is ‘yes’.

What is it about grandmas and their attention to detail?
Beautifully decorated trees and stockings hung by the chimney chairs with care.
I can barely pull it together enough to hang some bulbs on the tree.
Grandmas set the bar high!

This post would not be complete if I did not talk about snow. We got our White Christmas. A blizzard blew through Wednesday & Thursday. My kids love every icy, snow covered minute!
I am not a fan.



  1. Love the pictures, have fun!!! :)

  2. What a beautiful family. Merry Christmas to you all.

  3. Family is the best! So nice to enjoy time with them - and what a beautiful house!

  4. I'm not a fan of snow either, so it's not a whole lot of fun living in Central New York! Merry Christmas to you and the kids!!

    1. Thanks Kaye! I believe a storm is forecast for NY this week. Stay warm!
