Christmas Remnants

Happy New Year 2014

Christmas Remnants

We had a wonderful and joyful Christmas, and I hope you did too. It sure was a busy time of year. Along with all of the normal Christmas hectic, we had to go through everything Christopher had stashed around our home and property for him to get it moved out… finally. This was accomplished on the 17th, and it was such a relief.

December 18th brought Rory’s Christmas concert. What fun! Here is a video shot by one of Rory’s friends of her singing solo parts in Silver Bells. Enjoy…

We hosted Christmas gatherings on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the day after Christmas too. It was one big party around here filled with family and friends. What a blessing this Christmas season has been. Luke was wonderful as usual. My dishwasher went out just before Thanksgiving… guess what I got as an early Christmas present? That’s right, Luke bought me a brand new dishwasher and installed it for me too. It was the most amazing gift ever. It sure was nice to have for Thanksgiving and all of our Christmas celebrations. I decorated it with a giant red bow with a tag To: Lorelai From: Luke. What a sweetie I have. Thanks, honey!

Now it’s time for tearing down Christmas. I sure had a lot of fun decorating my home, but now I have to get everything organized to be put away. If you have any suggestions or tricks you could share, I would greatly appreciate it.

Rory and I actually had a fun time taking down the tree. She plopped herself on the floor where the tree had been, and I just couldn’t help myself… This was the result…

    Wow! It sounds like you had a busy, but fun, holiday season. I too love decorating for Christmas, but hate taking it all down. I’m still admiring my decorated tree as I type. LOL! It all looks so festive, but I think going past this weekend with all the decorations still up will be pushing it. Hubby hasn’t said anything about it – yet…

  3. What a beautiful voice she has! And that sounds like the perfect gift before holiday dinners and celebrations. I’m a little jealous. I so need a dishwasher. Both my dishwashers moved out on their own.

    I don’t know about you but nothing ever breaks at a good time around here. For the dishwasher to break at Thanksgiving would be about par for the course! Glad you got a new one šŸ™‚
    Happy New Year to you!

    Beautiful! Thank you for sharing, Lorelai!

  6. Oh what a beautiful voice and such a post Christmas treat! Rory is amazing! I love the RoryTree look! Will make a beautiful Christmas memory and possibly card for next year! Happy NEW year to you and your family šŸ™‚

  7. I’m so glad you had a great Christmas. I would agree with you that a dishwasher is a great gift! I’m all about practical.

  8. Great job Rory! Beautiful song.
    I have yet to take down our exterior Christmas decorations because of the arctic vortex that has hit the area. I wish I took them down sooner and be done with it. And I like your “happy Christmas tree.” šŸ™‚
