It's Christmas Eve Eve!

I can't believe it is almost Christmas 2013
I am celebrating today with Tiger having his first sleep over at Grandma's!  
Today is his parents 7th Anniversary and the first alone getaway since the little one was born!
Saying goodbye to Mama and Daddy

So we had lunch at McDonald's and played and played and took a nap and played and ate dinner and played and took a bath and played.
Whew!
He is on a mattress on the floor and I'm on the couch while we watch the movie CARS and get ready to go to sleep! 
It's been a good day but Grandma is tired!

I wanted to share some photos of the Christmas tree in my bedroom
It is done in white, pink, silver and Paris! 
Sent to me by my friend Susan, this ornament is very special to me
This ornament was purchased last Christmas in anticipation of this year's trip to Paris
Lots of pink ornaments
I faded pink vintage Shiny Brite
Hearts
a sweet snowman
(I used my pink scarf bought in Paris as the tree skirt)
Topped with two clip on flowers and my birthday tiara, I really love this little tree
Thanking all my blogging friends for sharing the joy of Christmas with me!

Sending warm hugs and lots of love to all of you
Merry Christmas!

Wishing you JOY,

Linda

What a fun day Tiger must have had with you.

I love your tree and especially the Paris ornament.

But, oh, I do love the white heart with the red glitter.

Merry Christmas

Alycia Nichols said...

Have you recovered yet??!?!?! Oh, my gosh...I don't know that I would have the energy to keep up with a little one like that! You are a GOOD Grandma!!!

I love your tree!!!! I know it holds a lot of special memories through the ornaments. That's part of what Christmas is about: holding near & dear those memories that nourish our souls.

So glad you and Tiger got time to spend overnight together. Hope Christmas was a great one!
