Christmas Party Highlights

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Hey everybody!  Thanks for all of your sweet comments about Parker!  He is doing well and continues to feel better each day.

Also, thank you to everyone who joined the Christmas party!  I was blown away by all of your links!  Below is a re-cap...prepare for a very long post as there were so many great photos.  And, as always, I try to feature blogs that haven't been spotlighted before. 

This series has been so much fun for me and I would like to continue it into the new year.  January seems to be the month when we are all trying to purge & get organized again.  How about we share organization posts?  Our pantry really needs help as does most every closet.  Hopefully this will motivate me to get on that right away.  If you have any organization tips or before & after projects you would like to share, please join the party January 16.  Now go enjoy your families ;)


  1. Wow Rene, I am blown away by the features today, the decorations are beautiful. You featured a lot of blogs that I have not heard of and am excited to check out and thank you for featuring my living room :).

    I am so glad to hear Parker is feeling better. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. I echo Elizabeth with the "Wow, Rene." All really beautiful images and I'm honored to be included in the group. I have a lot of Christmas dinner prep to do but there are a few places I need to visit before I can close the laptop.

    So many of these decorations are pure and simple. There's nothing more beautiful in my opinion.

    Merry Christmas!


  3. So many fun new blogs to explore!! Thank you so much for the feature. Merry Christmas!

  4. Rene, I loved these highlights! I'm glad to hear your son is doing better, that must've been worrisome. I am sorry I haven't been commenting as much as before, I usually only have 1 hand when I'm on the computer (i'm usually pumping) and so pin interest has become my new obsession - it only requires 1 hand!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!! See you in the New Year!!

  5. Thanks, Rene! Oh my gosh, such inspiration, I've already started saving ideas for next year! I love being introduced to new blogs, can't wait till I have a few minutes to check them out.

    Glad to hear Parker is on the mend!

    Merry Christmas!

  6. I am glad to hear Parker is getting better.
