Merry Christmas

 From our family to yours, Merry Christmas! 
 Your comments and e-mails have warmed my heart this year and it has been my pleasure to share my creations, my life and my family with all of you. 
I'm thankful to have all our family together this Christmas.  George works out of town during the week and commutes on the weekends and Benjamin attends UC Berkeley in California.  Everyone made it home safe and sound.

Benjamin tried a few blonde highlights this fall...only to die them back a month later. Good thing we will have family photos to remember that by! *Ü*

Nicholas is a Jr. in high school this year and I'm savoring every minute with him as he too will head to California for college in just over a year.  {Insert sad mom face}

And to prove he's really here since he is taking most of the pictures I post of family, here is my husband.  Forever supportive of my business and the best partner I could ask for.  We weathered a year of unemployment and my business kept us above water and our son in college.  We are forever grateful that he is working again even if it means he's only home on the weekends. :(
This new year will bring an exciting moment - very soon I will reach 9 million visitors to my blog!  Who would have thought just 8 years ago that I would be saying that today.  Thank you all for continuing to stop by, leave comments and send e-mails letting me know you appreciate my work.  We've had some pretty good times this year!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and my 2016 bring you many happy memories and reasons to celebrate!


  1. I've been following your blog for quite a few years. I can't believe how grown up the boys are! I guess time marches on. I hope 2016 is a fantastic year for your family. Merry Christmas & and have a fantastic 2016!!
