Indulge Me


I interrupt this decor blog for a small little post today to brag just a little bit.  I know you all come here to see cottage chippy and whites but today I am going to brag and show you two of the most precious things in my life.

Just when you think you could not love anyone more than your own children they give you grandchildren.  We took my two grand girls for their Christmas pictures.  

So I want to show them off.



This is Abby she is 7 years old and such a kind and sweet girl.  She is growing up so fast.  I can see it in this picture.



This is Charlotte 16 months old.  She is full of mischief and fun.  She is always happy.






This picture is one of my favorites taken.  Charlotte is saying Yep!!! I drop my letter in the box for Santa.  She was very excited.

As many of you know my husband Terry is a fire chief and this year there was a Christmas party for the firefighters and their families.  Terry has a fabulous Administrative Assistant that put together one of the best Christmas parties I have ever been too.  Good food, fun things for the kids to do and Santa arriving on the firetruck were just a few of the fun things going on.

They had face painting for the kids.  The artist that did up the kids faces was fabulous.  Abby wanted to be a panda bear.

Charlotte at 16 months old is a little scared of Santa but when you put a gift in the mix she is all in lol!

Charlotte was painted up to be Rudolph.

The firefighters have some of the sweetest kids and they all enjoyed being together and seeing Santa.

Thank you for indulging me a little bragging time.  I love these sweet angels and love living close enough to see them often and help my daughter out with babysitting.  They really make mine and Terry's hearts flutter.   

Hope you are enjoying getting ready for the big day.  It will be here before we know it.
I am trying this year to really enjoy the simple things about the holidays.  One of them was taking the day to go for pictures with the girls and then a big family dinner after.  So much fun for all of us.
Have a great rest of the week and wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  6. Oh, Kris, I enjoy your beautiful home decor posts, but I love when you share about your family most. I think we actually spend so much time working on the spaces in our homes just to support our love of family - that's what truly connects us all. Your granddaughters are precious. I can definitely see their personalities shining through in these pictures. Abby is turning into such a lovely young lady and you can just see the mischief in Charlotte's eyes. You have the right idea about how to enjoy the holiday season, for sure.

    PS
    We got a dusting of snow yesterday evening. It's all gone now but it was beautiful and rare for early December. It's been many years since we've had any.

  29. What sweet little darlings! I envy you having granddaughters. I don't have any grands and know I'm missing something very special. So good that you live close to them. These days, families are just too far apart.

  30. They are both so precious - what beautiful green and blue eyes they have! Some of my fondest childhood memories are those spent with my maternal grandparents. I have no doubt that will be Abby & Charlotte's too as you and Terry create such beautiful memories with them. Such an important relationship in a child's life. xo

  31. Kris, nothing better that two sweet, beautiful little girls and you must be so proud. What a great time those kids must have had at the firehouse. I can remember from my own how special it was just to go to the firehouse and then to have Christmas thrown in was almost too much to handle. I know you will, but keep these two little ones tight as they grow up so fast. Jerry and I were just talking this morning, as we dropped our grandson (just turned 24) and his girl friend off at the airport for a trip to Ireland and Scotland, where did all the time go? It went so fast, I could cry..Happy Holidays, xxo Judy

  38. Well, you KNOW I think your grandgirls are adorable!!! I can't believe how grown up Abby is and Charlotte is getting so big. Her personality is really starting to pop out. Love that picture of her by the "mailbox".

    What a blessing to have those sweet babies living close enough that you can see them so often.

    Have a wonderful night- xo Diana
