By the Fireside

 
The stockings are hung. . . .The baking is done. . . .
The packages are wrapped. . . .The greeting cards are mailed.
 
It's time for us to sit back, relax, and enjoy the remainder of these Christmas Holidays.
 

Time for a little pampering. . . .Some hot apple cider and pumpkin bread will do the trick. . . .


"Mints" on the pillows. . . .hmmm. . . .Don't you love those hotels that leave the little chocolates?
 
 
We'll need a little candlelight. . . .of course. . . .
 
 
 
 
and a 'Snoopy Tree'. . . .Yes! . .  .Not so perfect. . . .but adorable anyway. . . .
  
 
 
 
 
 
All I need to do is add a little Christmas music and the stage is set for a relaxing evening by the fireside. . . .
 
 
So many blessings to be thankful for. . .So many memories to reflect upon. . . .So much love to share. . . .in so many ways. . . .
 
I hope you've enjoyed looking in on our life here at The Country Farm Home this year. . . .We've certainly enjoyed sharing it with you. . . .We've met so many truly wonderful people. . . .and have made new friends that I hope will last a lifetime. . . .
 
This is my last post for the year. . . .unless I just can't stay away (you know how that is). . . .We're taking off the rest of the year. . . .to be with family and friends. . . .for Christmas parties and caroling . . . .to prepare for the 'big day'. . . .But, I'll definitely be back after the Holidays, with lots of new things to share--new ideas for our Plain and Simple Style--and new stories to tell. . . .So, until then my friends. . . .Have an Absolutely Wonder-filled Holiday!

Merry Christmas Dru and John!
Thank you for being such a blessing to me this year. I am so thankful for all the help you provided me this year with the loss of my beloved Daddy. I miss him so much and this time of year is very tough. First Christmas without him. Last year was our last time the entire family was together on Christmas day. So have a blessed holiday and enjoy and love the ones you are with. Know in your heart you have made a difference in mine.
God Bless You Both,
Susie
