This is a neighbor's house. Every inch is covered in lights!

Dinners, lunches, breakfast and a brunch, jammed into 3 days of celebration! I hope you all had a wonderful time with family and friends celebrating the birth of our Savior. I know I did, but I am tried. It is good to go back to regular life.

I have included a few family pictures. On Christmas Eve we were at my nephew, Justin's home. He has a huge house and every year he keeps adding to it. He had the largest Christmas trees I have seen in any home. His view on the deck is just stunning! My son, Kyle, got PJs, a robe and slippers along with his cousin, Ross. They both were quick to put them on and enjoyed the evening in their new gifts.

Noah was so tired, it was well past his 7:00 pm bed time. He did get the hang of opening gifts, one of Maya and Noah's favorite things was a big box that a gift came in. I love that about children. They just enjoy the simple pleasures of playing in a box.

On Pink Saturday, I am spending time with my sister-in-law, Maureen. Going shopping, maybe a movie, eating, of course, and just having fun together. After the kids made breakfast on Christmas Eve, my sinks got plugged up. So, Merry Christmas, plumber is coming in the morning. I also plan to begin the process of putting Christmas decorations away. I love them when they are up, but January is coming and time to change the decor! Hoping you all made it through. I know that many are having a hard time due to personal things going on in your lives. My prayers go out to you. Just think about what is being celebrated and that will give you hope. I know that is what I do, I have a lot to be thankful for.

I will be celebrating my one year blog anniversary on January 1, 2010. So my next post will be about my new give away! So ladies, lets hit the ground running, it is sales time! A new year is coming, our year of jubilee! Blessings, Martha

Dear Martha, I can see that you enjoyed the holiday surrounded by the love of family! It was a quite different Christmas around here this year, but that's okay, and I'm with you when it comes to the decorations. I am ready to start putting stuff away, clear things out, purge, simplify and start afresh! Hope that you are having a relaxing Day After and that you find the time to recuperate after all the celebrations! Happy Holidays to you and yours. Wishing you peace, love, health and happiness in the New Year! Blessings, Tammy
