sparkles and lights

That's how our house has felt this Christmas.  Our first Christmas in our new US home.  Lights all around outside, 2 trees sparkling, candles, sparkling twigs with tiny little lights on, fairy lights in the kiddos bedrooms.  I don't think I'll ever want to take all the decorations down come the new year.

A sprinkling of snow just before Christmas.

 Candy canes - a Christmas necessity in our house!

And a beautiful display at a local deli.

My very favourite Christmas decoration.

Sparkles and lights.

Boxing Day table setting for lunch with friends.

Annual trip to the Zoo Lights at Oregon Zoo. 
Love this tree at the entrance.

A little holiday crafting.  So many cardboard boxes in the house
we decided to make some little sparkly roof houses for Ruby to play with.

New hat taking a trip to the Zoo Ligths.

Gingerbread house and lollipops in lights.

Our Christmas wreath.  An oldie but I still love it.

Hope you've been enjoying the Christmas holidays and relaxing as much as we have.


  1. Glad you had such a wonderful Christmas !

  2. Happy New Year ~ thanks for popping over for a visit. Love that reindeer head!

  3. It all looks so lovely! I especially love the cardboard box houses. Happy New Year! Perhaps 2013 will be the year we'll get to meet in person.


Thanks for stopping by.
