Christmas Cheer at Home {Living Room}

Christmas is almost here! Can't wait to have my parents get here tomorrow and enjoy time with them along with my brother! I've been doing a little cooking, cleaning and tidying up around the house awaiting their arrival!

These are my last photos to post of Christmas cheer at home!

Last year M got me this book "Dogs in VOGUE" - I love it!!

These are our stockings. We received them as a wedding gift 4 years ago when we got married! It was the perfect gift since we got married in December!

I sure love getting to enjoy my Mom's baby grand piano, which is staying at my house for a while. I know she will be glad to get it moved to Dallas soon since they just moved there! It sure is nice having it here around the holidays though. I really need to take advantage of it and start playing again before it goes to Dallas! I'm awfully rusty!!

Someone is getting a cool piece of art! heehee

Every year it's a must that I make a few arrangements with cranberries and hydrangeas! Love it!!

On a sad note - M's Papa Joe, who was the only grandfather figure he had growing up, passed away this week. His funeral is tomorrow! Mike has always told the neatest and funniest stories about him and I had the pleasure of getting to know him as well! Such a neat man that will be missed! Any loss is sad with out a doubt - but this time of year it's always hard. But all is well and we remember him and the good times and stories!

If I'm not back tomorrow - Merry Christmas to you ALL! Have a safe and happy holiday with lots of love, joy, gratitude and thankfulness! And most of all - remember the TRUE meaning of Christmas!!
