Christmas Is Coming

Our big tree is a MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check themed tree that I change a little each year.  I mix in other ornaments that I have been given as gifts over the years, some from our travels and a few favorites from when the children were babies. When I receive ornaments as gifts, I document who I received them from and the year.  The small tree is Xavier's tree. Christmas through a child's eyes is best. 

I've been working a lot of overtime, and trying to balance Christmas preparation with work. It's all good, I think I will meet Santa's deadline.   

Thank you for your sweet comments and friendship over the year. Wishing you much love and laughter as you prepare for your holiday celebration. 

I hope your holiday is fabulous in every way! May all the magic and beauty of the season fill your home and heart with much happiness.

xoxo
Debbie

  11. Oh I like the idea of spending time in bed with a book and chocolate!
    I need to get a better relationship with Mrs. Claus so that she brings me more MC goodies - like your lovely table that I have always wanted - and oh to have a tree filled with MC ornaments - wow!
