This was my bedside table last week. Hot lemon & honey and lots of kleenex! I picked up a bug, which quickly went through the house! That set me back a week in preparations, but things are back on track now.
I love Christmas books
Look at the delicious Christmas diner on the dresser! I always have a huge bowl of roast potatoes with our dinner and lots of brussels sprouts too
Lots of baking going on
This painting has been in our home at Christmas for many years. The artist is Trisha Romance and she lives in a little town called Niagara-On-The-Lake which is near Niagara Falls. When we were first married we lived in St. Catharines, Ontario, which is very close to Niagara-On-The-Lake. All of Trisha's work is centered around family and also the town and we love it. The painting below is called "Christmas morning"
This one is a vignette of a larger painting called "Evening Skaters" and we have this one up at Christmas as well.
She has written a children's Christmas book which is just darling.
With the most beautiful artwork.
And of course, we mustn't forget Norman Rockwell. His art is timeless.
I still have my baking to do and will make a start on that tomorrow. We are getting really excited about having everyone home this year.
Tomorrow, Rebekah has to say goodbye to her Alex for 2 1/2 weeks as he flies home to Winnipeg for Christmas holidays. I know she will miss him, but they will do some facetime with their computers at least.
Can't believe this time next week we'll have had our dinner and will be enjoying family time!
