Farewell 2012 . . .

Hey everyone! Did you have a nice Christmas? We had my family over on Christmas Eve and it was a blast! On Christmas Day it was just the four of us. The kids stayed in their PJ's all day, we watched "A Christmas Story" and I made lasagna . . . yummy!

Santa brought Benny some new toys to play with.

Yesterday we finished putting all the Christmas decorations away. It was nice to get rid of all the extra clutter and clean up.

I decorated my shelf and console table for winter. It might not stay this way for long. . . I'm already thinking about Valentine's Day!

I found these snowflake ornaments on clearance at Target and hung them from the window with some ribbon. I love how they look with all the snow outside. 

I took a few glass jars and a silver tray from the Dollar Store to create a treat station. Aren't those mini milkbones cute? They're the perfect size for Benny . . . all 4 pounds of him!

I'm looking forward to a new year and more fun projects in 2013! 

Thank you all for following and supporting my blog.

Happy New Year!
