"Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas."
"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air."

"At Christmas, all roads lead home."
"When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the greatest glow of happiness."
Happy Holidays, Only 5 Shopping Days to go!
It will be a mad dash to the end for me. A full week of work, shopping, wrapping, and baking still yet to be done. Even with that long list hanging over my head, I am still trying to take the time to enjoy the true magic of the season and all the blessings we have to celebrate this year!
A special thanks to Kim and Kate for sending Reagan the most adorable little mudpie Christmas dress! I could not wait for the holidays to get here so she could wear it! I also need to thank to my Sister In Law, Ann who sent multiple pairs of fancy little mudpie socks. As luck would have it, one of the pairs matched the dress perfectly!
Who knew my black distressed dining room table could double as a studio set up. I had Pat help me turn the table on it's side near the big window and used natural light and a little help from a reflector. I think I prefer the white foambaord background that I used for her bday pictures, but they were trashed from all the cake and I did not replace them yet, so I had to come up with plan b. This series is a little different for me and doesn't fit my usual style, but I think that the black worked well behind those bright and vibrant colors in her dress.
