Quick Update and Merry Christmas!

Well I am off to see my family for Christmas. I can't wait! Here are some photos of our Christmas in Umatilla last weekend.

My mother in law took us to see Ice at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando. So neat, and soooooo cold - 9 degrees! We are not used to that here in FL.

All of this is made out of ice - can you believe that?

The hotel inside was beautiful. Here is my mother in law and Grandmother in law and me!

Sand sculptures - awesome.

Husband's mom got a new kitty for Christmas. His name is Dante. We all had so much fun playing with him.

He watched us all open our gifts.

And he found a nice resting spot with Husband.

I hope you all have a very blessed, safe and MERRY Christmas!

A Little Christmas

Thought I'd show you all some of my Christmas decor.
Maybe some of you out there have not decorated yet and need a little inspiration :)

Our village

Love this wreath I got in North Carolina

Our table. I took apart some berry garland to do that.


In the bathroom - some vintage ornaments mixed with new ornaments

And of course - our patio tree (My favorite) It still needs some work but you get the picture...

Annual St. Augustine Weekend

Hello everyone. I hope your weekend was grand. Ours was!

Every year we head over to St. Augustine for the Christmas parade and other festivities. We get to see my Grandma Kroncke and lots of other family members from my Dad's side. We had beautiful weather this weekend. Perfect for a parade and some shopping.

Here are Parker and Lillian watching the parade. They were really into it - so cute!

This person is not related to us but her dog is cute ;)

Tiny (Lillian) took some pictures with my camera. She is quite the photographer. She took this one of Grandma.

Parker did some rolling down the hills near the Fort.

Tiny watched.

Momma lookin pretty.

I love this with the sailboats in the background.

Lots of British were there.

And Indians.

Grandma and Dad always treat us to lunch. Here are Husband and Teresa enjoying themselves.

Brittany and Tiny are so pretty.

Husband and I had a good time too.

Tiny took this picture of Mom and Dad.
She did good!

Tiny took this one as well.

The trees in the square are beautifully lit at night. Unfortunately, I am not a great night time photographer yet...but here is one with Brittany and Teresa looking fabulous.

Husband spent a lot of the day this way but I don't think he minded.

It was a great weekend and now it is freezing in Tampa. I love it. Now time for housework - happy Monday ya'll!
