This past week has been difficult to say the least.

Unfortunately, she has a urinary tract infection.
She has, for years, made me promise
A couple of new ornaments on my tree this year.
Aiden's little chair, with teddy bear and book, sits next to the tree.
I just realized I should have started a fire in the fireplace!
The fireplace mantle scarf is actually a window valance.
I've had it tucked away for years.
Sure I'd find another use for it.
A close up of the Jim Shore Santa & Reindeer set on the mantle.
I love the quilt patterns on the reindeer's blankets.
And Santa is covered by a quilt.
More Jim Shore Santas.
On the quilted table topper sits an old salt wood box filled with Christmas greens. Easy to take on & off for meals.
My boys favorite nativity set when they were little.
And, of course, a Christmas quilt!
A few of my favorite ornaments.
Can you read the top left one?
I'm a Santa collector!
And last, but not least, my favorite Santa babies.
And last, but not least, my old stand bys.
My Christmas decorating is almost finished.
I can't wait to show you a few of my favorite things
and share a couple of new recipes I brought back from St Louis.
