Merry Christmas from my house to yours


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



I hope all of you have a great holiday and can spend it with friends and family. I hope you all get a book (or two!) and some quite time to read.













Most people put a star or an angle on top of their Christmas tree. Not us, we couldn't do something silly like follow the crowd when it comes to a tree top ornament. Nope..we have the sacred...Christmas Penguin! Lol! We love it. I have no idea why somebody came up with the idea of making a penguin Christmas tree topper but we just love it. I think it really shows our personalities.







Here are our stockings, yes there is stuff in them already which is why the red/white stripped one looks funny. My stocking is on the left, it has snowflakes on it since I love snowflakes. My husbands is in the middle. Our dog Myla even has her own, it's on the right.

It took us forever to find stockings like this. We looked every year. It was our first Christmas in our first house, probably about 6 or 7 years ago. My husband wanted the old fashioned knit kind. We looked high and low and finally found them at a store called Restoration Hardware.

Merry Christmas, Kris! Hope your holiday was fabulous.

We have bought a lot from Restoration Hardware -- but not stockings!

What a great picture, Kris!! And I love the stockings and penguin. We used to go to Restoration Hardware when we lived in Cali (they had one in Walnut Creek) and I love that store.

I absolutely love the penguin :-) It's a great idea!

Love the Christmas decorations. Lovely. We tend not to be traditional with the tree topper either...its ranged from santa claus to an evergreen to an ornament with a photo of our dog. This year is an angel though.

I love your Christmas penguin and the way Myla is sitting is hilarious! Hope you had a great Christmas. I miss Restoration Hardware. We used to have one in Jackson but it closed.

Thanks for the comments everyone! It's been a crazy couple of days so I'm way behind in emails and replying to comments.
