Merry Christmas

The stockings are hung by the fire
The trees are twinkling
The cookies are baked
the presents are *almost all wrapped

and the house is full of big kids again.

Which makes this mama pretty happy.

Something about those twinkling lights and the sounds of laughter in the house and the way that everything seems to shine just a little bit brighter during the holiday season...
 those things always make me reflect. 
About family and friends and Christmas past and all of the wonderful blessings in our lives.

And something that has been on my mind so much recently is how very thankful I am for all of you.
When I started my blog I had absolutely no idea how much this little place and meeting all of you and making so many friends right here on the internet would change my life. 
And change me. 
And in the most wonderful ways.

So this Christmas Eve,
 I want to say thank you so much for being a part of my world each day
and wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas filled with
merry & bright  happiness and blessings.

  13. Merry Christmas Courtney,
    It's such a beautiful time of the year and your pictures are certainly proof of that. Thank you for your inspiration. I may just have to put peonies on my Christmas list for next year instead of poinsettias!
    I just sent one of our sons off this early morning and so I know how much fun you are having. Oh the energy of boys and the smiles they put on our face.
