Christmas Cookies

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without cut-out, iced sugar cookies! This year I used Martha Stewart's recipe, and it worked very well.

Christmas Decorations

Here are some photos of our Christmas decorations this year. The photos serve as reminders of what worked and what didn't for future planning. Here's the entryway table.

Here are photos of the living room decorations.


Here is a photo of the dining room sideboard.

And here is the baker's rack in the kitchen.

Early Christmas!

We had an early Christmas this weekend with Rachel's family, as it's their year to go to Rob's family for Christmas. Eleanor and Thomas looked adorable in their Christmas pjs.



Eleanor and Thomas had lots of fun with her snack shop and cash register.



Uncle Patrick was also popular.



Papaw enjoyed watching the children open their gifts.



Here's one more photo that includes a look at the decorated mantel.
