What a Great Christmas!!

All the presents have been unwrapped, visiting for Christmas is done, Christmas dishes are packed away for next year and now comes the time of relaxing a little!  Christmas Eve we had dinner at Jenny and Kevin's house and then we went to the 11:00 p.m. service at our Church.  Christmas morning everyone arrived around 9:30 and then it was present opening galore!!  What fun we all had watching Owen open his gifts.  He loved every one of them.  Poor little thing has a really bad cold though!  Santa was very good to everyone at our house!  I spoke with my parents and sisters and they all had a great holiday too! They had a white Christmas in northwestern NJ!  Today they are suppose to get even more snow.

I hope all of you had a really great Christmas too!  Over the weekend I will be de-Christmasing (if that's even a word) at our house.  I am already starting to think about paint colors for some of the rooms.  January 13th I'm having my knitting group over to the house for a small housewarming party-so I want to get as much done as possible for that!

Everyone have a great day!

You are way ahead of me if you packed your Xmas dishes away already. It's funny, I just wrote on someone's blog that I was ready to start de-Christmasing, too. I will wait until New Year's Day though- Merry Day After! xo Diana

Happy to hear you had a wonderful Christmas, Sherri. I'm sure you are ready to get on with more painting and decorating in your new home. I'll start de-Christmasing after New Year's.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
