Christmas Dinner

As I was putting the finishing touches on our Christmas table, my mom came in the dining room and said she hoped I wasn't going to any extra trouble because she and my dad were there. I had to laugh as I looked down at myself, and I told her you could hardly say I was going all out. I was still in my pajamas, after all!



And that's why you will see pictures of our spiffy Christmas table, but not the lazy hostess!

I hope you have taken some time to linger in your PJs this holiday season. I highly recommend it!

Melissa, yes I did have some PJ time. I have to tell you, I had the best dessert in my life at a restaurant in Wetumpka. We lived in Montgomery and went there once with some friends. Seems like it had a giant tree out front. I hope you have a wonderful 2010.

Thank you for your blog. I love reading about how you "go all out" for your family. It inspires me (once again...my mother is also a beautiful example) to make each day special for my own family and not wait for company.

Your Christmas table looked lovely. What a pretty centerpiece and china.

I spent quite a bit of time in my PJs with a cup of tea and a book. It is nice, isn't it?

Happy New Year

A little PJ time does us all good to relax and play and enjoy the delights of the season.

I discovered your blog through Like Merchant Ships. I enjoy it so much. Love the holiday tablescape. I sm going to try your Nutter Butter ballerina slipper cookies for an afternoon playdate this Sunday. My daughter is so excited about helping me make these cute cookies for her friends. You inspire me to do little extras to make the little things more memorable.
