Christmas Gift

Christmas was amazing this year! All 5 of our boys were home and we all had such a wonderful time together! We all got spoiled, "as usual" but I recieved a special gift from my sister Cindy that I wanted to share with you.
Our Dad passed away on December 27th 1995. We all miss him. Growing up, Cindy and I always called my Dad, "Daddy" To the brother's he was "Dad" but to us girls he was always-Daddy. I love this pillow that Cindy made me. It made me cry when I opened such a special gift and I will treasure it forever.
Every year on Christmas Eve, we go to the cemetery and light candles on Daddy's grave. It is so peaceful and pretty.
This quilt is a beautiful wallhanging that I WON!
Two years ago, we went to a quilt guild and I bought a raffle ticket for $1.00. And this is what I won! It is hanging in our family room in our basement right now. I love it! I felt kind of bad when the ladies from the quilt guild delivered it to me because one of the ladies said she had bought 40 tickets because she wanted to win so bad. I can appreciate all of the time and work that went into making this quilt and I feel very fortunate to have won!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Our Little Acorn Cottage!
This year I decided to go with mostly gold, cream, and white decorations upstairs.

I love this little vintage deer.

I am so glad Bridger and Branson will still pose for pictures!
My very talented Mother made this Nativiy for me.

This is a small doll tree in my bedroom.

This little stocking was made by one of our sweet neighbors I love it! Thanks Brenna!
Max Misty and Baxter on the bed of course. I wish I were a better photographer. I have not learned how to fix the eyes in photo's. These furry babies are adorable! I'll work on taking better pictures.

My dear husband Kent and I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
May you all enjoy this beautiful season reflecting on the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
