Tidbits Of A December Saturday at Home

Countdown to Christmas, another day to cross off.

Little one begging me to work on this with her.  
I tell her yes, after some laundry loads.

Another little one, found creating antlers...

...for her TV.

Said laundry, I have 2 more piles this size elsewhere in the house. 
 Keeping it real, people.

Simple gifts ready to go.  Can you tell I am not planning on doing my usual Christmas Cookie baking?  

An unexpected drop in by Grandma bearing Christmas treats!

My oldest, measuring the melting. 
I looked everywhere for that glass measure this morning! 

The only Christmas decor my pre-teen would allow in her room.  Makes me smile.

Thank you notes and festive art left by my youngest.

Sounds of Christmas as they practice before Saturday morning piano lessons.

Headboard wrapped in Christmas lights.  Fa-la-la-la-laa, la, oh-la-la!!

Touches of silver sparkle next to a honeymoon picture.  
Do you see me in the reflection?
I walk around finding myself wanting to grasp on to the moments.  I am so thankful for each one.  I love our family life and our home.  Life is precious, and good.


  1. I love this post - simple yet full of so much.

  2. Merry Christmas, Amy!
    Thinking of you always.

  3. I just stumbled upon your site through pintrest, and I LOVE the concept of your blog! You are so right about cherishing the little moments, especially on Saturdays in December!
