here I am!! here I am!!


OH my sweet friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful, fantastical, Merriest of the merriest Christmas!!  I could not get to my blog to spend any more time then a minute or two over the last couple weeks.  And then we lost our cable, internet and phone from christmas morning til last night due to a wind storm!  but, Ive been so busy with all the Christmas business and family that I just couldn’t focus on blogging well anyways.  I love the holiday season and all the hustle and bustle of preparing for Christmas and I get totally wrapped up in it.   Or maybe I should say, obsessed.. but probably not as obsessed as some people.. but I do love my holidays you know!! lol!


I have to admit that I did not create anything, nothing, notta single cute little thing for Christmas this year. Those bear orders kept me tied up for about 2 months!  But look at what my daughter inlaw Vanessa and son created for my Jennifer.  We were all so impressed and Jennifer LOVES it to say the least!  Im sooo glad to have such creative peoples in my family!  (no complaints about those bear orders though.  I was grateful to have so many orders.. 36 bears and 22 stuffed santa stars!)  Im on a bear break right now, though I do have an order for one that I probably will do next week.  Im dying to make something cute... soon.. I just dont know what it might be.  I'm going to have to conjure up some inspiration.. maybe for something new years-ish..  I dont know what yet.  


so anyways...   Santa was very very good to us.. all 17 stockings were filled.. and a katrillion gifts were left.. and some were brought over by the kids when they came.    My favorite favorite christmas picture ever is the first one I posted above.. Torry and Marla just in awe.. looking at all those packages.. and sweet marla noticing something on the tree.   Seriously though.. the kids got too much.  not just from me though.. they are well loved by many generous people.  Im sure they still have no clue what they received.. especially Violet and of course Lilli.  

 

You know how it is though.. 
you just want to give give give them everything!!  
lol!  


a few more of my fav pics..  
 I do think Torry ate about 8 of those little sweet rolls.... 


And these two... cousin love!
just stinking precious! 


And sweet little LIlli pie... is such a good baby!!  I failed to get any other pics of her.  I really didnt take a lot of pics that morning. But, you just need to see how stinking awesome precious she is.. so I've stolen this one from Tiffanys facebook page... 


this baby is just beautiful!
As for christmas decorations..   I dont know which ones to post here..  so Im just gonna give you the link to my flickr album and you can see what ever ones you want to see!  theres only about 10,000 of my pics there! LOL!! (not kidding!!)


heres the link...  you may need to scroll down a bit to get to the decorations...    https://www.flickr.com/photos/vneroni/  
and for now.. I really need to get over and visit at some of your blogs!!  Please forgive my scatteredness and my inconsistent blog visits.. hoping to get back on track now that Christmas is over.   welll..... but I do have a new baby coming in janurary...   LOL!!  theres always something going on around here!  
love you all!  and have a great day! see you at your blog soon! lol!

You had a wonderful Christmas, Vivian! Was there room to move in your living room? : ) We had a great day, too. I love watching my granddaughter open her gifts and seeing her face change from wonder to a big smile. It just goes so darn fast!

Can't wait to see what you will wind up creating. I'm thinking of just moving onto Valentine's Day (by the time I get myself in gear!).

How wonderful and magical! I do believe they've been lying to us all these years - Santas Workshop isn't at the North Pole, it's at your house Viv!
Merriest and brightest of holidays to you and your family! xoxo

Beautiful pictures, viv. Wishing a blessed 2015! I've had fun scrolling through your flickr acct too.


Stephanie said...

I think I see you buried in that pile of presents!

Susie said...

Viv, I had to laugh, those gifts !! I used to do that every years for my daughters and their families. Then I juts started giving money as the children grew older...so much easier for me and they didn't have to take any thing back. Glad you enjoyed your lovely Christmas. xoxo,Susie
