Merry Christmas eve.....

Went to my brother's last night for dinner and to exchange gifts. It is so fun because my nephew is only 4 and Christmas and gifts are so exciting for him. This was one of them and he was so cute wearing it.... Well, I still have a ton of things to do for tomorrow! Happy Holidays!!!!

Twas the night before the night before.....

I just love this picture of my diningroom/snowman tree without the flash! It makes it look so warm and welcoming. I love this tree. It holds all my snowmen ornaments and it is in my diningroom that I love with these apple red walls! I am spending today finishing up a little bit of wrapping, and cleaning for the holidays! It really is my most favorite time of the year.

Merry Christmas to me!

Yea! Finally my new kitchen island and stools arrived today!!! We bought them way back on Oct. 8th, but the top was specially made and the distressing had to be done!!! I just burst into a smile whenever I walk into my kitchen!!!

p.s. please ignore the ugly floor that we have just not had to time to pull up and refinish the hardwood underneath!!!!

My "baby" is 16!!!

My baby boy, who I loving rocked to sleep night after night as a baby, turned 16 on Sunday. I can hardly believe it. It just seems like yesterday that my children were small and still wanted to eat whatever was on my plate, even though they had the same thing on theirs, who believed in Santa, the Easter Bunny and the tooth fairy, are nearly grown people. Where does the time go?? Our lives have changed so much since our children were born, but they are still the center of my world!!!

Happy Birthday Matt!!!!

New Connecticut signs!!!

Yea it's here!!!!

Finally, my gazeboo has arrived. Now, I am aware that it is too cold to use it and the power has not even been run out to it and won't be until next spring, but it is here and I love it. I can already see Dan and I sitting out there next summer and drinking our wine and feeling the warm shoreline breeze, BUG FREE!!!!!

1 year~ Woo Hoo

It's been a year since I started this blog. While I get a lot of traffic (so the counter says) I don't get a lot of comments. Ok, I'd like to think people are stopping by to see what's going on and then get called away on an emergency! Crazy? Is it? Ok, so for today I am going to post a picture of my almost finished kitchen Christmas tree. I still need to get the ornies from the attic but I like the way it is coming out so far. If you do too, let me know! Ok?
