My New Best Friend

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know that we sure did!!
We're spending the day just relaxing. I'm taking a few minutes to myself this afternoon to enjoy a few of the gifts that my dear, wonderful husband gave me. You see, he knows of my serious love affair with both coffee and anything French so he indulged me with a brand spankin' new Tassimo coffee/cappucino/latte/etc...machine - simply divine, I might add - and Kaari Meng's book "The French Inspired Home" I'm enjoying a fabulously delicious cappucino (doctor says it's okay to indulge once in a while while pregnant) and reading my new book. Ahhhh, such relaxation. Oh, and I'm listening to my new Susan Boyle CD that he gave me as well. Love her!

Anyway, I hope that you're all enjoying this afternoon and staying warm. It's FREEZING today!

Christmas Wishes From Our Home to Yours!

Oh boy! Where has the time gone? It's Christmas week and I haven't done a single post since late October!! Well, better late than never. We've been so busy around here getting the nursery ready to go and decorating for Christmas that I guess I kind of put my blog on the back burner for awhile. I've missed it though, like I always do when I neglect my poor little blog for any length of time, and figured it was time to pop in with an update and a visit to all of my kind blogging friends out there! (Okay - that was a serious run-on sentence.)
Anyway, we got some major snow around here - I'm talking about 2 feet of the white stuff and it is so beautiful! I took lots and lots of pictures and wanted to share them. They look so incredibly Christmas-y and we're really excited because it will be the first white Christmas we've had since I was a kid. The top photo was taken from inside the house while all of the rest were from around the outside. I just kept walking and walking and taking picture after picture. I couldn't seem to get enough of all the beauty around me.
It was so quiet as the snow fell. I could actually hear it falling. So peaceful!
The kids are enjoying it so much!

We've been listening to lots of Christmas music while enjoying hot chocolate and plenty of good old fashioned coziness by the fire. We're going to make Christmas cookies today and I will finish wrapping a few last minute gifts.

I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy and ready to enjoy a Merry Christmas!
From our home to yours, I wish you and your families a peaceful, warm and blessed Christmas.
God Bless,
