Holiday Decor

After two years in Switzerland we finally got to brush the dust of our Christmas decorations and put them on display. I had tons of fun doing lots of shopping at Pottery Barn to update some our decorations. After all they are two years older.
 

 

We got an early present of a new couch. It was delivered on the 23rd of December. Talk about the timing. It was so exciting to get a big comfy couch to chill on for the holidays.

P.S I have been way behind in the blogging world. So be patient as I attempt to catch up. We'll see how far I get.

Your place looks so warm and inviting. You have such a knack at creating a lovely place, it looks darling! It was fun talking to you the other day. Tell your family hello for me.

The couch is fab! I'm so sorry about the pictures. Kyle and I are trying to locate them. I hope they didn't get deleted.

Beautiful decorating, Janelle! Abram is sitting on my lap as we browse blogs and he loves your Christmas tree. He loves spotting them when we are driving and when I was explaining to him that it is not Christmas anymore because it is January and not December, he said (in a bit of a demanding voice) that he wanted it to be December "right now"! Thanks for showing your Christmas decorations especially for Abram's sake!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I loved your insight. Of course you can add me, but only if I can add you as well.
I didn't know you had a baby at 24 weeks. At the hospital I'm at right now, we still tried to resuscitate the baby as we waited for the team from Children's to come, but we don't have the facilities to take care of them long term. My older brother was born at 24 weeks but back then (late 70s) they wouldn't do anything for them. My mom said they just held him until he passed away 12 hours later.
It's hard to wonder what would have happened to your baby. He could have been completely healthy or he could have been severely disabled. From my small knowledge of babies born at 24 weeks, the prognosis is very poor. But there are those who do fine. I'm sorry you had to experience this though.
On a brighter note, I love your new couch. Miss you!

I love all your Christmas decorations! You guys look great too! I have been a slacker at checking blogs (and posting,of course) but my new years resolution is to do better! Miss you guys, and hope we get to catch up next time we are in Salt Lake (when it's not the crazy busy Christmas time!) love, Rach

Okay...so I finally have internet at our new house. It's great to check up on you and see all the fun times you had this holiday. I love the couch - It's gorgeous!

And how fun that Josh took you to the Nutcracker for your Birthday. He always has great surprises. I too LOVE the ballet! And that black little number you have on at the ballet is way too cute. I want one!

Nice couch! I'm jealous, that is next on my list. Don't worry about being behind on blogging. I think I'm worse than you.
