Christmas 2011

27th December 2011

Merry Christmas, y’all! It was a whirlwind, but I really enjoyed it. My brother was in from New York, and we really enjoyed all being together. I’m so grateful he has been able to come down each year since he moved there, even though I know we won’t always be so lucky. So the best part of my Christmas? My family and working together on my dad’s big surprise. It’s been a really rough year for a number of reasons, but mainly because starting on January 1 this year, my dad got pretty sick and was sick for several months. He’s doing much better now, but it was nice to be able to do something really special for him.

However, my sweet family also spoils me, so I thought I’d share some of my Christmas spoils below. Maddie wasn’t left out, never fear. She is currently sacked out in her Christmas sweater, a Christmas dog cookie hidden away somewhere for later. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope each of you had a fantastic holiday if you celebrate Christmas. I also hope you had a chance to remember those less fortunate at this time of year. Tomorrow I hope to spend a good bit of time trying to catch up on reading and some reviews, getting ready for a new start with 2012.

  • Merry Christmas to you! I’m glad to see it was a good one. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the little elephant salt and pepper shakers, they are so cute!

    • Aren’t they adorable? I just love it.
