I am enjoying this beautiful sunny , but chilly morning with my yummy cup of coffee. Red Velvet flavor...YUM!!! This Christmas season has been a particularly busy and tough one. With my Mom being ill and all the hustle and bustle, I never felt like taking pictures of my home. It was not a priority. And just when I was getting inspired to do a post ( thanks to some great friends), the tragedy happened at Sandy Hook. My decorated house seemed so..... very unimportant.
But, as the week went on and I heard such beautiful stories from families of the angels at Sandy Hook I started to feel like the decorations and the happiness they brought my kids did matter. My children LOVE them and I am so blessed to watch them smile when they look at their favorite nutcracker or look for their favorite ornament on the tree. So, this post is for them and the friends who have told me my decorations make them smile too.
Here are some of the nutcrackers the kids collect. We have close to 100...... They are placed throughout the house. The best part about decorating is when the kids find their favorites in the boxes. They still get so..excited!
I made this felt angel with my mom many many years ago. This angel is dedicated to all the beautiful Sandy Hook angels. They will never be forgotten....
So that was just a glimpse into our Christmas house. Our decorations are NOT subtle, but we wouldn't have it any other way:)
May your all have a blessed holiday with your family and friends.
And to all the people that have encouraged me and inspired me throughout the year..Thank you!
