Christmas Is Coming

Merry Christmas from Mimi & Daddy-O!

Like most of you, I have lots to do in the next few days, so I'm not sure if I'll make it back here to visit with you before Christmas. I wanted to share some of our traditions as we got closer to the day but I only managed one photo of an old Christmas decoration.

He is the plaster of Paris Santa that I painted when I was five. How it has survived all those years (and no, I'm not telling you exactly how many) I have no idea. It looks like I painted it with a watercolor set. Remember the little pots of color in a plastic metal box? It was so long ago that I don't remember for sure.

My Christmas menu is loosely planned. In case you are looking for some last minute ideas, here are a few of our favorites. Some of these will be on our table. Just not sure which ones yet. 

The house will be full in a couple of days. It's time for lots of hugs and laughter. We are watching the weather closely and hoping all our chicks will have no problems driving home this weekend. And we are hoping that you find joy this Christmas however you spend it.


  1. Enjoy time with family. And merry, merry Christmas!

  2. Food, fun, hugs and laughter. It doesn't get any better. Merry Christmas to all.


I love it when you say hello here! Next best thing to stopping by for a visit.
