before it gets put away.

i’m always a little sad to put away all the christmas decorations, but excited to start the new year with fresh and clean rooms. wanted to post a few pics before it all gets put away. sniff, sniff.

dessert buffet.

 

i am almost always in charge of dessert for family functions, and this year was by far the easiest as i included decorated sugar cookies and fudge (popular with the kiddos), cuties (popular with anyone after a huge and heavy meal), and a gifted fruit tart.  one thing i’ve learned is to not overdo it when it comes to holidays. too much pressure=less fun and less time to spend with loved ones, no?

some pictures from the last of 2009.

{a visit from santa, of course. apparently he vacations next door. who knew?}

{a huge christmas eve meal with andrew, j, and his kids.}

{and an even bigger meal for christmas.}

{santa brought j a ludwig set. needless to say, he was a very happy boy.}

{santa brought me a few cool gifts, too. needless to say, i was a very happy girl.}

christmas was filled with love, togetherness, and relaxation. and it was beautiful and warm enough to wear flip-flops. we played with all our toys, then spent the day after christmas not fighting the crowds at the mall, but using up our annual passes at the aquarium.

all in all a fabulous christmas. tonight will be very low-key. have a safe and wonderful new year’s eve!

hodge podge.

i have no word really for my interior design style. i am extremely fickle, like a lot of different styles, and rarely am apt to settle on just one. so i’m basically hodge podge. which is why i love this sneak peek at design sponge. a lot of the furniture is thrifted, which is so me.
