Getting in the Spirit

In spite of the fact that I'm feeling a little under the weather, its been a lovely evening. The kids came home early enough to put on a little christmas cheer with me so we spent the evening decorating. I decided to let them put the tree up all by themselves this year. I tend to be a bit of a control freak, so kudos to me! I only made a couple of suggestions, but shut up when they decided to do it their way lol. Most of our ornaments are hand made with love.

Even Lucky got in the Christmas spirit... or at least he was dressed like it!

And what cold Autumn night is complete without homeade hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream?

The lights were stretched on the shrubs... not sure if I'll get anything else done this year.  

And when all the work is done, we got to sit back and enjoy the beauty of the season.

Happy Holidays everyone!


  1. This is such a beautiful, warm post, thank you for sharing! That collar on the dog ... did you make it? If so, would you mind telling me how? If it is your own pattern that you use for sales, or something, no problem, I understand.

  2. Hi Anna. I didn't make it, but upon studying it, it would be super easy to do. It appears to be just an elastic hair band (the big kind lol) and the fills are just sheer ribbon, cut in 6 inch strips, tied to the band. The ends are cut at a steep angle. The green ones have little bells tied to the tips of them. Looks pretty easy. Let me know how they turn out if you make them!

  3. Thank you, so much! That does sound easy. I will certainly have to try that, but it may be a week before I get to it. I am working on knitting miniature stockings at the moment.
