Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to my family and friends



















I just wanted to wish all my friends and family a very Merry Christmas. We had a lovely day; the weather was beautiful and sunny. i got to sleep in (yay!) since i was up all night with a scratchy, dry cough (boo!). we opened our gifts and then Dillon went to play a video game, i set about cleaning up, doing laundry, getting things ready for dinner (you know, "mom" stuff). we decided this year to have a very informal dinner, no company and no set time. i would cook and then we would eat when we wanted. it was very relaxing.
Oh, and the winner of my blog giveaway is Abbie Galie, who guessed 150 ornaments on the wreath. i actually used 151 ornaments! thanks for playing.
the last two pictures i took at a local nursery where i went to find a terra cotta tray for my bird bath (mine cracked). it was so cheerful and warm inside the nursery. the temp was about 75 degrees or more and the sun was coming in. it was just gorgeous and i felt so much better breathing all that healthy air from the plants. i 'll have to pop over there more in the winter as it gets colder and grayer. (maybe i'll bring my beach chair and a book and set up in an isolated corner of the greenhouse! )
