Happy Monday all!
Our family Christmas yesterday was a success.
My 9 year old granddaughter Mikayla made
chocolate chip cookies for everyone.
I have to admit they were yummy!
Since Michele broke her leg,
the kids have stepped it up to help her out.
They take turns cooking and washing clothes.
Now if we could get them to clean their messy rooms.
The food must have been good...because there
was only a bit of ham and cheesy potatoes left.
It was fun catching up with everyone...
but I was pooped when they all left.
My mom spent the night and we both got
into our pj's and watched Hallmark Channel
Bob did his own thing in the other room.
I usually have a forest of trees in our house
(according to Bob)
but with our bedroom redo, only the living room
and part of the kitchen was decked out this year.
After I did a bit in the master bedroom,
Saturday afternoon I decided
to try and create some festive cheer
in the other bedroom.
I had these wood spools, so I wrapped them in
red & white ribbon for a bit of cheer.
(Pinterest to the rescue)
I put this together really quick.
With my shoes.
Also wrapped some linen I had with the same ribbon,
and tucked in a bit of holly.
Added a shoe form.
Finally put together this simple arrangement,
using more holly, one poinsettia
with a fabric heart I had made.
I had wanted to frame this song sheet...
but oh well
just put it in the buttocks basket.
No forest in here Bob...maybe next year though. ;-)
Glad I was able to give my mom some Christmas cheer
in the bedroom she stayed in.
This was also the first year where we did not put
up our lights outside.
Pinterest has been my friend lately.
If you would like to look at my boards and pins,
I am incognito under Bob's name.
Just look up
Robert Ahee on Pinterest
and it will come up.
You can follow me there if you like.
Is Pinterest your friend?
Do you have a Pinterest Board?
Festive Bedroom Blessings To All!
