Happy New Year!

I took some time off.

From blogging that is.

There’s never really any time off when you’re a mom.

Am I right?

Halloween came and went.

After that…Thanksgiving and Christmas were here.

Then gone.

Just like that.

Poof.

We had fun and it was a great holiday.

But really…

THANK GOODNESS IT’S OVER.

Now back to school.

Back to work.

Reality at it’s finest.

Today, I’ll just show you what we were up too.

If you don’t like looking at pictures…

LEAVE NOW.

Up first…

Halloween.

Our photo booth was fun and a huge hit.

It was all black and spooky with creepy crawlies and fun props.

The kids had a blast.

Can’t you tell…

My daughter and a few of her friends. Their smiling. Really…they are.

Thanksgiving was fun too.

A lot of family and friends.

This is not us. But if it was this is exactly what we looked like. 🙂

Then came Christmas.

Christmas is always fun.

And hectic.

But Christmas in the South.

You gotta love it.

So welcome…

to my home.

Halfway into the Christmas season…

the lights at the top of my tree went out.

Yes…went out.

I wasn’t about to undecorate it and fix or replace the lights.

So I left them.

Whatever.

Isn’t she just adorable.

 

So that’s about it.

I told you it was hectic.

But the family, the friendship, the fun and the food…

well that makes it all worthwhile.

So from our family to yours…

And a very happy, healthy and less hectic new year.

Until then…

 

P.S.  I’ll be back tomorrow you show a furniture redo.

I wasn’t completely lazy during the holidays.

I know.

Shocker huh?
