I also wanted to share with you my wallpaper project that I tackled this summer, I was down in my basement dusting, and realized that I hadn't shared that project with my blogger friends. It was a spur of the moment selection, but I'm sooo pleased with it. My basement just looks sooo very cozy, and it matched perfectly with my couch, don't you agree? Well...my boys hang out in the basement with their friends, so it makes for a nice cozy spot for them. Hope everyone is having a happy day. I suppose I'll get started on my baking tomorrow.
And here is the Christmas birdhouse...it's so sweet in person with the fake snow
with the fabric....still love it just as much today...

So I'm back home from my sister's, and we had a wonderful time. We went to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family, and although the weather made our commute a little scary, we made it there and back safely. My sister had her house decorated so pretty, I took a few snapshots to share with you. She's the sister that tells us she has no clue how to decorate....I think she's been pulling our leg all along. HA! She also has two boys about the same age of mine...so you can imagine the four of them running around the house like mad....phew they'll sleep good tonight!!!
And of course as we do each and every time we go to visit Teresa - the sisters have to take our trip to the local "Home Goods" one of our favorite places to shop for home stuff! And this time my brother and his wife tagged along with their 3 kids....when we got there my sister Martha announces "quick each of us grab a kid" - ha can you just picture it! So, this is how it goes....we like to take our initial scan of the entire store, filling the cart with all of the treasures that we spot, and then at the end...we start going through the cart and deciding what we'll buy. Ha....I had the cart FULL of stuff, and by the end of the shopping tour...I ended up with ONE thing - can you believe it???! And it was a clearance item too for only $3.00! (oh my husband will be proud!) A cute little frame with fabric stitching on brown plaid - it's adorable...so I found the perfect spot in my family room for it. Isn't is just so cute?!

This year I decided to do red and white with gold ribbon on my gifts, and they turned out so pretty. We started a tradition years ago where us three sisters, and my sister-in-law exchange ornaments. So each year I buy 3 of the same ornaments and they do the same. It's been such a wonderful tradition. I look forward to finding that special ornament each year. I bought a lot of gift bags this year too. I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the weekend. Stay warm...and happy wrapping to all!
These are my 3 special ornaments this year...

Here is the entrance to the university, and our offices are located on the second floor. It was neat to be there. And I was proud to find out that our company donated this entire campus to the state of Oklahoma for the university. Our company used to occupy this entire area for years, until they moved most of our operations to Houston

P.S. - Thanks Lynn from Vintage Nest...for dragging me out of the closet!
AND I'm suppose to pass this on. I'd like to pass this award on to Nan at "On My Porch" who is so charming and warm! And my all time favorite - Kim at "Daisy Cottage" who is a wonderful person, great decorator, and perfect spirit lifter!
