Merry Christmas!!

My goodness!!  I didn't realize that I haven't blogged in so long!!  We've had one heck of a busy year!  Hubby had been working a lot and it seemed as though we had something going on almost every weekend....weddings, birthdays, funerals, picnics, etc.! On top of that, we've had to adjust to the kids' work schedules and Kory embarking on a new phase in her life where we've had to get accustomed to a whole new staff and facility, attend meetings to set goals for her Life Plan, and go through the process of interviewing providers. Hopefully, things will calm down and get back to normal soon!
I have a few pictures of my Christmas decor to share with you.  Last year, after Christmas,  I had envisioned making some changes in my decor for this year, but when it came time to decorate, those ideas didn't quite pan out like I had hoped and I really haven't had time or the creative "mojo" to come up with anything different.   I did manage to simplify my decor like I was hoping to do, so that's a plus!  lol  I hope you enjoy!

Here are a few shots of my Kitchen:

This is my Dining Room

Living Room

Main Bathroom

Entry Way

Family Room

Oops!  After I posted this picture, I realized that I forgot to remove the towel on the chair seat ( my kitties like to sleep on it) and the fabric on the back, which is what I'm going to reupholster the chair in at a later time!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!

Until Next time....Kris
