Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all the loyal readers of this blog!

The tree is up and surrounded by presents, the house is decorated, the breakfast has been made (I make a make-ahead breakfast called Christmas AM Wife Saver), and the baking has been taken care of (Thanks Mom! ). There is nothing to do now but wait for morning.

We went to the Christmas Eve service at our church and true to tradition, after we got back home, while everyone is still wearing their good clothes, we took our traditional Christmas pictures. We usually take the pictures in front of the Christmas tree--however, everyone has grown up now and we all dwarf the tree when we stand in front of it. So the next best backdrop is one of my Christmas quilts in the dining room.


  1. Merry Christmas!

    I really like the candy-cane candles on your table - they're cute!

    Have a great day with your family,


  2. Merry Christmas to you and your family! You all look so happy.

  3. Merry Christmas! Great family photo and your wall quilt is perfect in the photo. I have candy cane chandles on my table too. I have had them for years and just love them.

  4. Good looking group there--you must have a tripod for the camera so one of you can dash back in??

    I love seeing the decoration you have put out especially those candy cane candles--those are too cool!!

  5. Hope your day was the merriest -- love the quilt *s*

  6. Cute candycane candles! They go great with the quilt - I like the black background :-)

  7. Great Christmas pictures. Great looking family and I love the quilt you used for the back ground. I love the way the colors pop out with the black background. Great idea.
