Well we have celebrated, ate and enjoyed good company. Christmas 2014 is in the books as they say.
I had a wonderful week of gatherings leading up to Christmas and one highlight was an annual trip to see my friend Shelly's house all decked out in the cutest vintage Christmas decor you have EVER seen. I wanted to do an entire post on the pictures I took. Do you think it is too late to share them now that Christmas has passed?
We baked and baked and then baked some more. Tins and bags of goodies left the house faster than I could bake. These peppermint kiss cookies were my new recipe this year. Just the cute colorful look of these cookies will keep them on our yearly list. I will share the recipe because they are so easy and look so fun.
On the 20th I had my group of friends through blogging over for a brunch. We had the best time and I am so lucky to have met such wonderful friends through this blog. I cherish these gals. I set the table simply but it is fun to get my Santa plates out each year.
Every year we gather at our friends house for their annual Christmas Eve party. We have known each other since childhood and grew up on the same street. They are like family to us.
Finally, at home, everyone tucked in bed, and lo and behold Santa came. This was the kids' tree this year.
One particular kiddo was very excited this year. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and now onto New Years. Most of our decor came down today. We left a couple trees that will stay until New Year's day but it feels good to have the house restored to order.
