Christmas Break

Dave and I went to Indianapolis for the Christmas holiday.  We spent three wonderful days visiting with my family, and celebrating the best parts of life.  My pregnant sister and her husband flew in from Florida, and my grandmother and aunt flew in from Southern California.  It was a full house!  We spent many late nights chatting around the kitchen island, and sipping mulled wine.  We played games, and watched movies (It's A Wonderful Life-- the best Christmas movie ever made, in my opinion).


Mom had the house completely decked out for the holiday...


my mother's library, complete with a golfing Santa
(and Ava Bamboo Table Lamp from our store)











(a classically retro Yule Log cake, complete with meringue mushrooms)


(Belgian waffles for brunch)


Then, on December 27th, we woke up to snow...   








It was the perfect Christmas break.



I hope you all had a peaceful and restful holiday.  I'll be back with regular blog posts next week, as we eagerly welcome the start of 2012!


xoxo,
Kelly
