My Favorite Time of the Year

Christmas is for sure one of my favorite times of the year. Here's a few snipits from my favorite spot in the house at Christmas, the dining room! Photo frame ornaments, courtesy of Target's after Christmas sell last year. I know now why they were still on the shelf, they weigh a ton! They're definitely made for a fake tree, which I vow to NEVER have! My favorite blue wreath, courtesy of Lowe's after Christmas sell last year...I paid next to nothing for it, definitely my best purchase! Our pink and green tree, with a quilt as the tree skirt. I really hate tree skirts, the really great ones are normally really expensive...and the cheap ones are always so tacky. One day I'll make one with my vintage sewing machine, but until then, this quilt will do! Next, the first pink ornaments I ever bought for the tree...again, an after Christmas special. At first, I wasn't quite sure if I would like the bigger tree in the dining room, so I never bought anything full price. And finally, my "cheer" ornament my only and favorite letter ornament. Hope I can find more of those soon!

One last photo of the kids riding the 4 wheeler over the weekend. Look at my sweet Milly up front, she's such a sweet girl, and she loves kids! My husband wasn't feeling so great, but took them for a ride. As a matter of fact, I'm on my way home now...he's got that nasty stomach virus. ugh!
