Pure Joy!   4 comments

We finally made it down to California on Christmas Eve!  Steve and I both were able to get on earlier flights and that made all the difference in the world!  If we stayed with our original flights we would have missed a big portion of the Christmas Eve festivities. 

This Christmas Eve was really special because both the Washington and Dallas clans were able to be there this year and that hasn’t happened in years!  There were 37 of us!  PURE JOY!  Since we were all together we took family photos.  Here are the nieces and nephews…


Like I said, PURE JOY!

Tablescape Tuesday – Nativity   27 comments

Merry Christmas everyone!  Today I would like to share my Nativity tablescape with you. 


When our family gets together at Christmas Eve,  we read the Christmas story from Luke 2 in the Bible.  That reading is the inspiration for this tablescape.  


The nativity set is a Lenox look alike that I received as a Christmas present from my work about 20 years ago. The black “table cloth” is actually a long piece of black tulle I am borrowing from my sister that I folded together to make a table cloth.  I have a white table cloth underneath to soften the black tone.  I purchased the dessert plates at Fred Meyer.  The white plates are Wedgewood that I picked up at Goodwill for a song of a deal.  I bought the candle wreaths at Michaels and the wine glasses were a wedding gift.

Monday Travel – NOT!   2 comments

In case you did not know,  I live in the state of Washington and work in the state of California.  I fly home to Seattle on Thursday afternoon and back down to California on Monday mornings.  Well, we figured that there would be issues today due to all the weather related delays and cancellations this weekend at Seatac airport. 

My flight was canceled this morning and I am now not able to fly down to California until Christmas Eve!  OH WELL!  I needed to finish my Christmas shopping down south.  Looks like there will be lots of gift cards instead of the actual presents this year!  Hope you all understand!  What’s funny is that hubby is flying down on Christmas Eve as well and I am now on the flight before his!  GO FIGURE!

We are hoping and praying that all will go well and that there will be no more cancelations or delays.  

Here’s what it looked like when we woke up this morning to nearly 11 inches of snow!
