A White Christmas and Little Home Tour

Hello, Dear Ones! I pray you all had a Merry Christmas. We certainly did and I feel so blessed. I realized I haven't shown you my house dressed for Christmas this year. Well, I'm a little ashamed as I didn't go all out like I usually do. I went simple and poked stuff here or there. I'll let you take a peep and then I'll show you our snow!! Oh, it's marvelous!











 My daughter, son-in-law and babies came over around 3:00 pm for Christmas and I decided to have finger foods instead of a big meal. It was a hit. I threw down a runner on the island and filled it with goodies. 

We had the desserts on the kitchen table. My daughter makes this traditional gingerbread man each year and now the babies are old enough to decorate it. So here it is! :)
I didn't get many snaps of the actual Christmas gifting as the babies were having so much fun and wiggling!

 Now to the snow! Look at the sun room windows!!
 Looking out the front door.
 It is so pretty and it's cold outside.


 Here is Mr. Precious with his Christmas gift "The Beast" - his new snow blower! He is like a kid!
As the sun sets on the freshly fallen snow I'll bid you adieu til next time.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

I Wish Every Day Could Be Like Christmas

What time is it baby, is it that time again

When snow will be falling, friends will be calling
You know it's time when, there'll be carolers singing Silent Night
I love when they sing, the feeling it brings
It's warm as a fire is bright

Soon there'll be toys for good girls and boys
And reindeer are heading our way
Yes, and Santa will come down the chimney above
There's one thing I wanted to say

I wish every day could be like Christmas
And if I could have one wish come true
I wish every day could be, full of peace and harmony
I wish every day could be like Christmas, I do

I saw a child sit with old Mr. Clause,
Looked him in the eye and he asked old Santa what peace on earth was
Now the old man grew cautious, on how he would say
That it's the greatest gift what you could give, every day

I wish every day could be like Christmas
And if I could have one wish come true
I wish every day could be, full of peace and harmony
I wish every day could be like Christmas, I do

Now the mistle-toe and the house aglow
All the world seems at ease tonight
And all that I ask when these precious moments pass
Is why can't every day be so bright

I wish every day could be like Christmas
And if I could have one wish come true
I wish every day could be, full of peace and harmony
I wish every day could be like Christmas, I do
Honest I do, yes I do now
Very merry Christmas
