{Happy New Year Everyone}


Well the old saying, "Time waits on NO ONE" is surely true! It was January 2019 just last week it seemed and here it is a year later. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas season and that your New Year has gotten off to a good beginning for you. We surely had a wonderful holiday season. I have so many pictures but will share just a few of my favorites. 

 We love our PJ's and at Christmas us girls and the grands all wear our PJ's. I had a friend do the design on our shirts for us all and they turned out so adorable. But I am huge SUCKER for Red trucks! 

 These kiddos bring me so much joy. Every year I buy the kids matching PJ's and sometimes it has been hard to get them all to match with so many different sizes. But once again, it all worked out.


I enjoyed my tablescape this season. Hated to put it all away. No worries though...I've already started on another tablescape. LOL! 



 Yes I do love me a little red truck.


 Even my grandbabies had a little Christmas tablescape.


 Speaking of red trucks...


I got another Red Truck to play with for Christmas. LOVE IT! 


We celebrate Christmas Eve at my FIL home and have Santa come with gifts for the kids. It is so much fun to watch the little ones as their faces light up when they see him coming.
Even us BIG kids love Santa. 


One of the favs of the kids was the Cocoa bar.
 Marshmallows went into the larger bowl and chocolate chips in the smaller bowl.


 And did I ever make some good, rich, creamy cocoa! Remember when I shared about having Belgium hot chocolate in NYC while the kids ice skated?  That was the best hot chocolate ever. So I decided to make our family some Belgium hot chocolate.


It was soooooo good! I found a recipe and I tweaked it just a tad and well....it was a winner for us all! 


We made so many wonderful memories during the Christmas season. We ended 2019  with our children and grandchildren with a big pot of chili, hot dogs, all the fixings along with roasting s'mores.  God has been so good to us and continually amazes me with His love, mercy and grace. So undeserving but yet...HE STILL LOVES US!



We wish you all a very blessed and wonderful New Year. May you be blessed more than you could ever imagine.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    1. Thank you Kitty. I have really enjoyed mine for sure. I do not like running the heater at night...I get too hot...but since we have had a few cold night here in Florida, those flannel pj pants has sure been nice.

  14. Hi Cindy,
    You are so blessed with this beautiful family. We all get matching PJ's for Christmas each year too. I agree getting everyone's sizes is a challenge. Yours are adorable. Glad you had such a great Christmas all together. Hoping 2020 will bring you more joy and happiness and great health. I love that your jammies all matched your table setting too! Big New Year's Hugs.

  18. I love your family pictures. What a beautiful family. Everyone looks happy and like they are having a ball. LOVE that red truck with the tree- what a perfect gift!

    I always do the pjs for the kids (big and little, too). Lately, Target has been doing family pjs and on the Black Friday weekend-they were $5! They are usually $29! Crazy and I was able to get all the sizes I needed (12 pair). lol

    Hope you have a great Sunday- xo Diana

    1. Girl I bought 6 pair and 4 tops! I need to wait till Black Friday I guess to hunt. I did find the pj bottoms in the right sizes at Target. Found the tops elsewhere and then had the logo put on them. Was an easy fix but really wished I could have found the whole sets in the sizes I needed. Thinking ahead now! LOL!

  20. Happy New Year, Cindy!

    Love your holiday PJS, tablescape (the black plaid looks great!), and cocoa bar (now you've got me craving Belgium hot chocolate!).

    I took down my Christmas stuff yesterday. But I'm looking forward to decorating for winter.

    Thanks for the visit. For some odd reason, I didn't receive an e-mail notification. Maybe Blogger has changed again...

    1. Blogger can sure be CRAZY at times. I have one blogging friend that I NEVER get a notification from and yet I am suppose too.

  25. It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. We split ours between our daughter's home on Christmas Eve and our son's home on Christmas Day. I loved the matching pj's. We've talked about doing that next year with our kids and grands all together. What fun!
