Christmas around the house...

I wasn't going to post until after Christmas since the Newtown tragedy.  I've been so down and I seem to cry at a drop of a pin at any given point of the day.  I am so sad for our fellow CT neighbors; I can't even remember being this down since September 11th, 2001.  But, I realize it doesn't do anyone any good to wallow.  Today, I carved out some time today to finish up some last minute decorations.  This made me forget for just a second.  Here are some snapshots....





I hope you all are enjoying the last couple of days before Christmas and are looking forward to spending time with family.  I know I am.  God bless.

  1. I share your sentiments. Too sad; haven't felt like blogging. But, you're right about not wallowing. I need to post something too and thought about my holiday decor. Coincidentally, we have Hable stockings too - think they're so fun and whimsical. Merry, merry to you and yours.

  2. Thanks for sharing these photos of your home. It's charming and seeing them is a nice diversion from the sadness of the news broadcasts.

  3. I know how you feel. Any attempt to write a blog post seems so trite, even though I love reading them right now. P.S. I love those Hable stockings and am kicking myself for not ordering my girls those PJs before GH sold out this year! Merry Christmas, Fran. xxoo

  4. I agree ... seems trivial and unimportant to blog right now (for me anyway) so I can understand what you are feeling too. We are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and normally I would be posting about that and everything else but I just can't bring myself to do it. God bless you too and Merry Christmas!

  6. I just now put up pics of my Christmas decorations as well. Felt like I probably should, even though I didn't really want to take the time to do it. Hate it when blogging feels like a chore, instead of fun. I like the wreaths hanging in your dining room & your china cabinet!

  7. Very pretty! And, I feel the same way. I went shopping with friends last night and it took my mind off of it for a couple of hours which is what I needed. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

  8. I hope spending time with your family over Christmas brings you some comfort, Fran. I know I'm especially looking forward to it this year. P.S. Your home is so pretty. Love seeing these pictures.

  9. I'm with everyone else and blogging just hasn't been a priority for me lately. I've been thinking about you specifically a lot because of what has happened and hoping you're finding comforting in snuggling with your family and doing some crafting and decorating and baking. We've been doing lots of baking. I would like to get a post up before Christmas, so hopefully you'll be hearing from me soon. My heart aches and aches. My brother sent me some video from my nephews holiday concert and I couldn't get through the songs. God bless you and your family and everyone in CT Fran.
