Christmas In Our Dining Nook

Uh-Oh!
It's almost here.
Are you all scrambling to be ready for the big day like I am?


It will all get done - at least good enough, right?
That's what I keep telling myself.



We're actually going on a short ski trip right before Christmas.
I'm not sure who's crazy idea that was!
With our oldest being in college now, it's more difficult to find 
a time when we can do things as a family.


So my deadline is very near.
I need to have everything ready before we leave.


But don't worry (just in case you would) - I won't be skiing.
You can find me in the lodge by the fire with a warm drink.



Sounds very relaxing about right now.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures of our simple dining nook as I rambled on
and I hope to share a little more of Christmas at our house before we leave on our trip.



Have a wonderful and productive week with hopefully a little bit of
relaxation and enjoyment of the season mixed in.

Thanks a bunch for visiting!
JoAnne

  3. Your home is looking festive already, especially that last photo with a view of your pretty tree! Enjoy the special time with your family. It is hard to get everybody together, but so worth the extra effort.
