Home for the Holidays

posted by Sharon December 28, 2013 9 Comments

What made your holiday seem holiday-like? I love the Christmas tree and lights and bells and presents. And so does my little Emily.

This holiday is a memorable one in our house because our daughter came home.

We’re enjoying leisurely conversations, neighborhood walks, movies, and (of course) holiday meals. On Christmas morning, we picked up my mom and all went to breakfast at a tropical restaurant on the bay.

We found a gingerbread house contest in the lobby and voted for our favorites.

The best part of this holiday is being together. Connecting. Learning. Laughing.

We’re celebrating for a few more days, creating memories. I’m so thankful that Meg came home for the holidays.

How about you? Did you have a quiet holiday at home? Or celebrate with lots of friends and family? What’s one memory you’ll treasure from this season?

Linking up with a song-inspired party, Song-ography, where the theme this week is “Home for the Holidays.”

Oh my…what a beauuuuuutiful daughter you have my friend! So, so, so glad she was home for the holiday. It makes all the difference in the world doesn’t it?!?!!? My Christmas was very laid back, just enjoying have all my Things under one roof for a short while. It just gets harder and harder to finagle schedules to make that work. So when it does…I’m ON it :). Thanks for joining in at Song-ography! Happy New Year!

How fun to have your daughter home for Christmas. It sounds like a great time was had by everyone. Gingerbread contests are fun, I love seeing how creative people are. The tropical breakfast sounds yummy and that photo with the Poinsettias and waterfall is so pretty. I also thought your kitty looked so sweet under the tree. Happy New Year!

Lovely photos and thoughts, Sharon! Your daughter is gorgeous! I finally have both daughters and their families living in San Diego County–my biggest blessing this year! (No trips to Atlanta or Santa Barbara or anywhere else to see them!) My dog, Frieda, consented to wear a jingle bell collar this season! Wishing you and yours all the best in 2014! PS A special hello to your sweet momma!
