Hot Cocoa

Enjoying a giant mug of hot cocoa is just one of the season's many pleasures.

This is Milky Way Sugar, posing in a great chair I found recently at the local antique mall. It is sturdy and has a lot of detail, and it was only $8!

The 12 Days of Christmas

Promise has been a teacher long enough to know that memorizing "The Twelve Days of Christmas" will be much easier for the children with the help of a visual aid.

Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Ivy is proud to be known for her extensive collection of St. Nicholas statues and figurines. 

This Blythe is Prima Dolly Amaryllis. The only santa that is of note in this picture is the one in back on the left; he was made by a local artist, Nancy Thomas. She has a cool little store in this area, and sells on a website too. She designed an ornament for the White House Christmas tree in 2007.

Deck the Halls

As Bridget hangs the wreath on the front door, the Christmas decorating is DONE! Now it's time for some gingerbread and hot chocolate. 

She is Allegra Champagne. Do you like our new door? It is an incredible prop that my husband got for me for Christmas...yes, he said I could sneak it out of the bag for a picture! It is produced in Colonial Williamsburg, and it is meant to go with a set of dolls that they sell (which I do not like! Like this doll .) It is perfect for Blythe. I will show more of it in the future.

Holiday Viewing

These two can't get enough of "The Little Drummer Boy" at Christmas. What holiday movie is on your "must see" list? 

Petit Dejeuner and Lena Elena.
