Christmas pictures...

Quote for the Day:
Christmas is not an external event at all, 
but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart.
Freya Stark

If you've been wondering where I've been...well...between having computer issues, getting ready for Christmas, and frantically finishing up the Sunflower quilt to make room for Holiday guests, I've been busy!  :)  I didn't forget my readers, though, and I hope you haven't forgotten me, either!  :)

Erin, Dale and Sera came home from Tennessee to celebrate Christmas with us and we had a great visit!  :)  Since I got such a late start on Christmas decorating because kitchen construction items have been strewn about the house for month, now, I only put up the Christmas tree, and a couple of items on the porch... 

On Christmas Eve, Sera went outside and put "reindeer food" on the lawn!  Reindeer food consists of oats and red glitter.  The reindeer see the red glitter from the sky and know to stop at that house, and the oats for them to nibble on when they land!  :)

She was also sure to leave cookies and milk out for Santa!  It all must have worked, because there were plenty of gifts to open the next morning!  :)

This is Daisy...their dog...who kept on eye on all the activities!  :)

She was particularly interested in what Andy was opening...

All in all, it was a very nice Christmas and visit even if Erin & I did come down with colds on Christmas day.  

Erin, Dale and Sera left today to return their home.  The house is again quiet.   And I'm going to miss them all very much until the next time we get to see them!



  1. I'm glad y'all had a nice Christmas and visit! Miss and love y'all bunches!

    P.S. Get Well Soon!

  2. Looks like a wonderful time was had by all! I remember reading about the "silent echoes of the house" and now know what it means. We love'em and we miss'em. Hope you are well again. :)

  3. I am so glad you had fun...and that Santa came to your house!
