It’s the calm before the family feast right now.  The gifts have been unwrapped, the mess has been cleaned up, the boys are outside happily digging in the snow, hubby has dinner well under way and I’ve set my table.


I used the new napkin holders I got today.



They’re pretty golden birds that somehow seemed appropriate considering we’re eating a turkey dinner.

The centerpiece is a late wedding gift.


I fully intend to light the candles this year so everything will (hopefully) look golden.  I’d love to post pics of the whole affair but there are a few family members who wouldn’t appreciate that so you’ll only get to see the serene before the festive.  Enjoy it.  I am.
