Dream Cottage

I'd love to have this cottage for my very own -
complete with peppermint flowers and a candy cane lantern holder!
Doesn't it look cozy?

Snowy Day

I have no excuses for not posting in almost two months! For some reason, I just felt overwhelmed with blogging and preparing for Thanksgiving at our house, etc. That doesn't mean that I haven't been enjoying your blogs, though! So many wonderful decorations and pretty homemade goodies - it has gotten me in the mood for the holidays and inspired me to create!!

Our little family decided to head up towards Mt Rainier and we ALL had so much fun playing in the wonderful white stuff! We were the first ones there on Saturday morning and enjoyed making and packing down our own trails.
It was the first time for the two younger ones to play in so much snow . . . tubing, creating snow angels, etc.

Of course, it was necessary to top it all off with a cup of hot cocoa!
I'm no longer DREAMING of a White Christmas!
*Sigh* It was so beautiful, quiet, and peaceful. I will treasure these memories forever!
