New additions...

We went out for quick errands on Saturday just as the snow started again.  All necessities you know.
A stop at the craft store for Em.
A quick stop at the quilt shop for me.  I had some early Christmas money to spend.  :)
And then the traditional stop for our new 'Old World Christmas' ornaments.

I could not walk away from this cute little mouse once I saw him.  He just had to be brought home to find a home in our tree.  It's suppose to be an ornament for everyone.  ;)
 I have a soft spot for the Santa ornaments.  And I could not pass this guy up.  He looks so good with his white Christmas tree.
 Em went way far off from the traditional choices and picked out this cute little gecko.  He's so cute with his sparkly little spots.
 Brenna just had to have a bird this year.  It's all rosy pink and brown.  Just perfect.  Now all three kids have special birds on the tree.
 And Glenn picked out a gorgeous, glittery acorn.  It's suppose to represent good luck.
Cross your fingers.  :)
I've got more pics to share on all the goings on around here over the weekend.  It was not hectic but a lot of things got accomplished.  It was nice to be able to go with the flow of things and just let stuff happen. Even Glenn said it was a great weekend full of relaxing and having fun, after several 15 hour days for him last week.  Hopefully the rest of the holiday season will be just as relaxed.


  1. Old World Christmas ornaments are very lovely!

  2. Oh,My!
    They are all so darling!
    I am so glad you all had such a fun family event and that Glenn got in some much needed R&R!

  3. Your ornaments are really lovely! I love your header with the snowy tree.

  4. I can honestly say, I've never seen a gecko ornament before! Your little mouse is so sweet. We're still without the tree. I've promised this weekend -- keep inspiring and I'll get it together eventually.

  5. Those are so cute! I can't wait to get my Christmas decorations out. I'm not sure why we haven't yet either :) We had a very relaxing weekend and enjoyed the snow.

  6. aw, i love the acorn. have a great week!

  7. Oh my goodness, the ornaments are beautiful!
