Anxiously waiting for something to come out of the oven.
Not sure which one of the twins this is, but love the pose!

This is my favorite photo of Grey and Micah from last year. just had to share it again!

Christmas is speeding into view! I love all the decorated houses in the neighborhood. We are in Arizona for Christmas and enjoying our home here. It is partially furnished by friends and family and we have the basics. I bought a tree at Target that had the lights already installed. We have never had an artificial tree before and it was so easy! Especially with all the lights already on it, which is my least favorite part. Seriously, I haven't decorated a tree in over ten years! We are always out of town with family. It was such fun to see all the old ornaments again. 
Remember  Joan Walsh Anglund and her darling little characters? Here are two cuties from the 1970's.

You can also see that I made lots of counted cross stitch ornaments when my kids were little.

This pic is of my daughter Jennie's tree in Atlanta. I was there recently. She still has a couple of Santa Bears from Dayton's dept store in Minneapolis from long ago. They made one each year for a long time. Classic!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

Awww Marcie, sounds like you are having a wonderful holiday season. I didn't know you had a home in AZ. I miss our shows there. Especially the weather this time of year. Happy Holidays!

Sue said...

Oh those babies are no longer babies.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas season with your family.

Darlene said...

Merry Christmas and welcome back to AZ. :-)

Darling grandsons! That oven peering shot is too cute :)

I made lots of cross-stitch ornaments when my kids were little too and love putting out all those treasures on the tree. Glad you are getting a chance to do the same this year. Merry Christmas!

Me and My Stitches said...

Oh my gosh, Marcie - that is the cutest picture ever!! Hope the little guy was awarded with some cookies for all of his patience. Glad you are settling in and great that you have a tree and are revisiting all of your ornaments. Isn't it a fun trip down memory lane? Merry Christmas to you!

Lori said...

Both photos are adorable!! Merry Christmas Marcie!!

My guess is it's Micah's; his eyes have that distinctive little look, well, they both do, but Michah's seem a little more pronounced.

Merry Christmas, Marcie!

The "waiting for cookies" photo should win a prize . . . somewhere. I can't believe how fast those fellas are growing. So glad you get to enjoy time with family. Have a safe trip home.
