So it begins, the Sunday before Christmas we make cookies as a family. The Grandmas were there, sisters, brothers, in-laws, nieces and nephews and the grand baby. All gathered to make their own creations and just to love on each other. This year more than ever, we were so close you could just feel the love in the air. I adore my family. Here are a few pictures of the day, as well as, some more Christmas decorations.

Oh yes, I finished setting the table, I think. Only a few more gifts to wrap before the big day! God has been so good to me, I just do not deserve His blessings. However, isn't that what Mercy is?

We are in our final days, ladies, before the big event. Hope all is going well with you and oh, yes, stress free! Blessings! Martha

You got the table done! You were stressing about that weren't you! It looks beautiful. Your family looks like they are all having so much fun too, I think it's so wonderful you all gather to do this. You must have a very special family, just like you. I hope your week is cheery leading up to Christmas and do NOT stress!

Dearest Martha, you are truly blessed with a loving and wonderful family. Looks like you are all having so much fun. I love that quilt in the first picture. Gorgeous! And that white cupboard -- is that in a bedroom? It is beautiful and everything is so fantastically decorated. Noah is a sweetie petting the golden reindeer. Wishing you a wonderful day and many more cherished holiday memories. Blessings, Tammy
