Having Myself A Merry Little Christmas


I am just popping in to say hello and season’s greetings and merry Christmas and all that good stuff.  I hope your holidays have been bright thus far.

We have had a Norman Rockwellian sort of Christmas here at the House of Antique. We had a lovely snowfall on Christmas eve and even built a snowman.  We have had company and baked cookies and sang carols and thoroughly enjoyed the sparkle and light a six-year-old brings to the season.

I got a robe for Christmas, not a Rob as I was led to believe. Guess I’ll have to run my own errands.  Sean got an archery set and not a Barbie Dream House as I led him to believe.

In the years to come, I doubt that we’ll remember the gifts or even the snow, but that we were well, warm, fed and all together; that we lacked nothing.  It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?

The picture in the snow globe is one AD took today of Sean and me while we were out walkin’ in a winter wonderland.  I made the snow globe in Photoshop using the  PanosFX snow globe action, a free download.

  1. Our kids were led to believe they’d gotten exercise equipment, only to discover Beatles Rockband for the Wii. Well… it is sort of like exercise… Merry Christmas to you all!

  2. Oh. . .I believe that Sean WILL remember the snow. . .and he most definitely WOULD HAVE REMEMBERED if you HAD gotten him a Barbie Dream House. 🙂 No snow in Houston, but COLD–and clear and bright.

  3. Merry Christmas! We now have the “Little House on the Prairie” books, thanks to you! Hope to start reading them next week. My girls need some lessons in being grateful…they opened iPods, Taylor Swift tickets, clothes, DS games, and more…and still had the wherewithal to ask why they didn’t get a Wii! Hoping Laura Ingalls can help us out!

  4. Such a hard year for us here and yet….such a nice Christmas. But so glad it’s over- I am NOT a big fan of Christmas but I do a good job for my boy.

    The snow globe is awesome!


  5. Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family. Thank you for always sharing. Your outlook on life and family makes this world feel like a kinder, gentler place.

  6. That picture just pulls at my heartstrings. So sweet.

    Love to you and your family, AM. I am so happy I got to meet you and become friends with you this year. Happy 2010!!!

  7. AM, your posts have given us vignettes rich in whimsy, beauty of the ordinary, and love for your child which is a singular reflection of God’s love for us. The sorrows in your past have honed the wonder and gratitude of your present.

    You’ve been graced with a deep understanding of this balance.

    I wish you Christmas peace in your home, joy in your spirit, and beauty to surround you.

  8. I’m too late to say Happy Christmas, Antique Mommy, but I’m in time to say Happy New Year.

    I’ve enjoyed your blog throughout 2009. Thanks for all you write.
