Happy New Year! We have safely and happily entered into 2012! Hope you have too! Looking back over my Christmas photos, I saw that there were huge gaps. Usually the gaps were when I was cooking - which was quite often. But I did get a few shots of the completed tables, and they sure were worth all of the hard work. You know you work for 2 or 3 days and then everybody gobbles it up in 40 minutes! This year I was smart and made sure we had leftovers to last a few days! Because once I had reached Christmas Day- KITCHEN CLOSED!
Here are the Christmas Cousins!
Stephanie decorated the table with a Gingerbread Train that she and my nephew made! It was so unique, and the kids loved it! She used coconut for the snow! Stealing that idea next year!
And, last but not least- Here is the Thanksgiving table at my Mom's! It was very pretty, and the food was excellent! That is Wilson helping put the final touches on! The painting over the fireplace is of cotton on my family's farm. We commissioned it for Mom's birthday one year.
I'll be back soon with lots of news! John Stephen has started school! And I am starting a new job in the morning! Very exciting! The prospect of a paycheck has inspired me to do a little online shopping!! So, until next time! Happy New Year!
