These are a few of my favorite things...

Chrsitmas day has come and gone;
leaving us with many wonderful memories and generous gifts..
we also have the coming days to celebrate with our visiting family..
to eat, drink and be merry!
To look ahead to the new year with vigor and excitement for what is yet to come!
To share with you, dear friends...here are a few of our favorite gifts!

While sitting in a chair underneath, it really does look as if you are sitting under a tree!
Warm wishes to all for a wonderful Christmas week...the celebration continues for us until Epiphany...our first year celebrating as a family.

  6. what fun ... the children that start in your program will really appreciate the safe and warm feeling that they will get from having the "ceiling lowered" by the branches, the warm colors and natural materials to experience, wonderful...well on your way to your in home preschool...

  7. Wonderful gifts. (I also play the Irish whistle *smiles). Your seasonal branch is beautiful. I will be having a branch mobile coming up this year on my blog. When I get the summer leaf garland made I'll send you a notice. I like the idea of making it seasonal a lot. Take care and have a blessed New Year.

    I'm jealous of your bound book of blog posts. Such a wonderful, thoughtful gift.

  14. Oh my what wonderful Christmas treasures! Your husband was so sweet to make a book out of your blog. I love the table and chairs, the luminiere, and a tin whistle. I love how you try new things!
    I am thinking I need to get on the chalkboard bandwagon. Merry Christmas (we're celebrating until the Epiphany too). Happy New Year!
