Ha Ha! I've been coming to your blog long enough to know you're good for at least one more. Glad I visited tonight. I always love your tree pics (we went to color lights this year and I'm missing my white lights....)Love the Dr. Suess tree!


I see its dropping needles already urghh, we dont get trees like that in Australia but our pine trees we usually spray hair spray under each branch and it stop it "shedding" so much. Not sure if it will help with yours but that must be annoying, or perhaps just a part of Christmas xx

I feel pathetic that I check your blog everyday even when you say you aren't blogging until next year. lol


Lovely as always! :-) And I am very happy too to read from you again!!
But where did Josh Downs' orange Beavers T-Shirt go??? I really think about that!! :-)
Love and merry Christmas


The twinkle is beautiful...jingle all the way. Love that Josh got to wear the "bell" hat. Thinking about one year ago and it fills my heart that you are all celebrating together. Merry merry Christmas.

You made my day! Merry Christmas!


I love your walls! They make for wonderful light!
And if you hadn't said anything about the curtain or the 10 lbs, no one would know!


Glad to hear from you again. :) Love the pictures- and adore Annie's tights! Glad you're out of the boot and back on your own 2 feet.


first off.. i LOVE the simplicity of that room.. don't change a thing. it was a wonderful treat to have you back before 2013 but now go soak up the remaining 2012.. blessings karen


So great to see this post today. The other night my bff and I were (s)talking about you, and she said, "If only she could just post one picture of her lovely tree..." And I said, "With that white wall behind it..." And she said, "She is the only reason I have any desire to have a white wall." And we sighed.

And then on your last post, and you said that was it...I almost commented, begging for a pic of your tree--but that was rude, I thought. You made my day, and are subsequently creeped out....sorry, sort of.

Thanks for the pics :) Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Merry Christmas! see you in 2013


Love your tree. Love your pictures, as usual. It always seems like you're shooting in perfect daylight. I still can't figure out the lighting in my house. Or maybe it's the editing that I can't figure out. Or maybe it's my camera. Or maybe all three. Whatever. My pictures just always look so dark when I shoot inside. And the ones that were blurry? I couldn't tell. That's how mine always are. Maybe I should have asked Santa for a photography class for Christmas.



OMG...I have no idea why I clicked on your page since you said you wouldn't be back till next year and BAM...there it is! LOVE LOVE LOVE your REAL tree!

Thanks for sharing!!! And Merry Christmas to you and your family!


Karen I love your christmas photos......and I love the normal story line that goes with it because we can all relate to this activity, it's supposed to be enjoyable and calming but with kids involved there are always tears and sometimes cranky mothers...but hey, that's REAL LIFE. One suggestion before you log off for 2012. Don't you want to post some Thanksgiving pics before you sign off.......after all who wants to post them in Jan/Feb the following year...I'm just sayin......I love seeing your Thanksgiving pics......just thought I would throw that one out pressure!! (ha ha!!). Have a safe and Happy Christmas and I will be working hard on the healthy eating in the New point worrying about it now, well at least you had an injury...I just ate chocolate!!!

Love your pictures and stories as always. Merry Christmas to you and yours. God bless.

Love that we have the exact same hat in our house - and yes, it gets fought over also. Love that live in your house is REAL - so real, and can so relate to it all.
Have a wonderful Christmas


Love this post and the pictures! Merry Christmas!


So glad Josh is home for this one. :) I love your Dr. Seuss tree. I miss our real trees we used to get. Thanks for the extra post. I always check...


PS. I love your shiny baseboards. ;)

Kristen G

Love. Love. Love. Your Dr. Seuss tree!


Lovely to hear from you again. I fractured my foot 3 weeks ago and now I have a kinky foot boot for Christmas & New Year. Can't believe what a ball and chain it is, it's really changed my life so much, and my family's life, it's been a real eye-opener.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas full of warmth and joy.

Gina Maserang

I've been waiting for a picture of your tree, so you made my day. Merry Christmas to you and your family!


Lovely shots as usual, hope your holidays are happy!

Cathy Barrows

Love to read your posts - just real life. And you make me laugh! Taking your photography course and reading your blog has inspired me to start my own blog for my friends and family to read. I'm loving it. Somewhere to post some of my photos.
I'll keep checking back to see if you've changed your mind about not blogging!

Suezi Gurzi

Thank goodness you are alive!! I was worried but really I i knew you were taking a much needed break! So glad to have you back at least for one or two posts! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Have fun with that family of yours and look forward to catching up in the New Year!
Thanks for sharing your family with all of us...the good and the bad! I love it all. That sounds weird but I think you know what I mean! xoxo


Miss your posts so so much. They are such a bright spot in my day! Cant wait to see you back here, blogging away with all your goodness. Merry Christmas, enjoy your family and may God bless you richly in 2013.~
