~The week that flew~

As much as I enjoy bringing out my Christmas, I enjoy putting it away and bringing out my old favorite snowmen. So let me take you back through the week that flew. These are my snowmen, I think they are made of paperclay. I bought them years ago and they just get better with age.




Now as I start to put away and clean up I feel refreshed, love that feeling. The day after Christmas I cleaned our my closet and have six bags for Goodwill. I like how organized it all looks.

And it snowed!

And it stuck.....
My best gift was my son being home to celebrate the holiday with us and knowing he is here to stay just put a happy glow on everything.
I am just sitting down to catch up with the blogs. Now do tell how do you  all find the time to post? Between work, Christmas, family, baking, parties, I just can't seem to find the time to even take pictures, let alone sit down and write a post?

All the grandchildren and children were here for Christmas. Presents were opened, food was eaten, the kids went out sledding and came in cold and wet, sat by the fire to warm up as the jackets and pants tumbled in the dryer. Hot chocolate was sipped, dessert was eaten. There were rosy cheeks and many smiles, giggles, teasing, wet floors, wet mittens and an all round good time was had by all. And after everyone left I sat down by the same fire and had a Gingerbread Martini with a content smile on my face.

Someone loved his new toy. Not to mention the wrapping it came in.
