Home For the Holidays

My house feels warm and cozy this holiday season. We were able to finish decorating and spread the holiday cheer around the house.
I was able to finish the good vibrations blanket that I have been working on for a couple of months. When making it I just wanted something happy and fun. Now that it is finally finished I love it and think it's look perfect all curled up on our living room chair.
At night the house gets a beautiful glow about it. It feels so happy and cheerful, Tonight we are going to drink our hot cocoa and make our Santa cookies.
Today I am putting some last minute touches on a couple of spaces in our house, so that I can take some pictures. Hope everyone is finishing their shopping, getting those goodies at the grocery store, and getting ready for the jolly man with the list.
