With very special thanks!

My dear, sweet deer from my evil twin, Pam @ One Gal's Trash, *teehee* and just a couple of goodies from my sweetie @ Junque Drawer Chick... you both made my week! Thank you sooooooo much for my gifts!! I'm just in love with them all!! This Christmas was better than I even imagined, I found the perfect quote to sum it all up.

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”

Burton Hillis

After recovering from being sick all week with the flu, I was finally feeling better on Christmas afternoon, perfect timing and that was a blessing. We had a 3 day blizzard, got snowed in and we all enjoyed our quality holiday time together.

FUN, FESTIVE...Frigid in Parkville, Mo. I love that town!

We had THE best time ever!!!! Here are some photos of the family all bundled up~ it was 21 degrees, so we weren't too worried about looking that fashionable. :) An evening of fireworks and the most wonderful choir of children entertained us and it was such a magical, Christmas~sy night!!!
I have been feeling a wee bit like a scrooge recently and am having a hard time getting into the spirit... this was just what I needed. A big thank you to everyone for attending Cory, Nani, Papa, Brendan, Katie, Beth and Ryan... it really was very special! I love you ALL! ox :)
While strolling the downtown, I stumbled across my new favorite shop!!! Trust me, you mix COFFEE with SHABBY and I'm in heaven! The sights and smells in this shop were absolutely breathtaking and the pictures just don't do it justice... I promise! Get a load of these shots from our visit.... Marsha is the owner of this FAB place and she is just the sweetest! She was sooo cute~ letting me snap photos~ knowing that they would be shared right here...blog bound! I was so in love, I just HAD to show and tell! Making her cameo appearance, we have Kristie by the assortment of teas and Angie (who I told to make a silly pose!) behind the counter. Marsha actually has her back turned in the picture, she's the one in the cute striped shirt! I'm so happy to have found SHABBY HATTIE'S, if you are local, you've got to stop by for a treat!
