A Little Celebration

People have been sick, I'm up to my eyeballs in dirty laundry, and our Christmas was definitely not my favorite. I think my entire family is demanding a redo. Not the gifts... thank goodness! But just a time to come and spend together with one another. I look forward to it.

I "remade" clothes for the kids for Christmas... my nieces, nephews, and my own. Some of the items were vintage... some were not. Pretty much everything was thrifted except Diego's pants which he already owned.

I was hoping that my kids would wear their outfits to church on Sunday, but we ended up spending the day in pj's. All of us. That's how we roll.

Since we're feeling better today, I thought I'd let 'em dress up and at least celebrate the fact that our tummies are feeling better... our spirits are, too!

We are looking forward to the New Year... I think we'll celebrate with just our little family. We may make this piƱata tomorrow, if I can get my act together and get the form made tonight. We shall see.

It's good to be back in the swing of things... we are blessed. And the past five days have made us even more aware of all of God's goodness to us. Even in the hard times.

Linking up!

This is the last week of Little Vintage Style Link Ups... be sure to check here:

I so hear you about Christmas this year. It was so hard to enjoy it with all the back and form to KC for Robert. Mass was excellent and time with family was wonderful. But with a kiddo fresh out of surgery I am just not willing to go out in the nice weather for fear he will get sick and right now a fever means a trip to the Doc or the Er. So ready for the New Year.

Ella asked when she could come over to play, so I guess we need to talk play date!
