This is our antique sleigh holding our first-ever artificial tree! First ever in my life! Time got away from us and I brought up my kitchen tree which is already decorated. Sonny, actually, was a little happy ~ he cuts the tree, brings it home, and decorates it! He felt like he lucked out this year! And you know what, it works!

I love the way the sunlight is streaming in the window. No sun here today ~ this was last week!

We went to a fun party at our kids' friends house this weekend! Good food and lots of laughs ~ we so appreciate being included. They have a white elephant exchange and this grandma was the lucky recipient of the gag gift ~ a red sequined thong!!!! Of all people! They got a lot of mileage out of that one!! Thanks Brigette and John for inviting us!!

I took pizza pull-apart muffins. You can find the recipe on my Pinterest page under 'Bread Box' - it is always a hit!

Have a happy Monday!

Last night ~ a Friday night~ Sonny built a fire and we just sat and enjoyed a quiet evening. We don't do that often enough.

I had a beginner class yesterday and friend Heather was here for a little refresher course. We had a great time ~ the new gals were quick to learn and I think they're going to love it. For their lunch, I made broccoli quiche, layered salad and muffins (from my favorite muffin shop). A good day!

This is our porch at night. Daughter-in-law, Coni, made us the JOY sign last Christmas and I adorned it with a garland. I love lights ~ so welcoming.

I hope your days are filled with fun and not crazy like mine! They would be less so if I didn't try to cram so much into a day! Enjoy the season!
