Quarles Christmas!!

Posted: December 25, 2011 in DIY, Family, holidays

Merry Christmas Eve friends!!!

I used to LOVE Christmas – the kid that woke you up at the crack of dawn, the older kid that played Santa to all, and the even older kid that still believed there was a Santa. Then life started happening. That was several years ago.

Here I was. December 1, 2011 – the grinch. December 10, 2011 – a zombie. December 23, 2011, I went from the grinch to a Griswold. Dealing with the holidays is always a tough battle for me. So many memories of my dad and family. However, I decided this year to celebrate my father and on the 10th of each December, we plan to deck the halls and officially get into the Christmas spirit! I got my whole family onboard… so exciting!!

Welp…the man opened one of his gifts early – Sony PS3 headphones. He’s in another world, totally ignoring me and the reason for the season simultaneously. He’s happy and me and Koda are having a good ol time watching Ray, playing with wrapping paper, and blogging! 🙂

Here are a few pictures from the Christmas home decor. Major shout-out to Pinterest this year for getting me into and through the holidays!


*we got our Charlie Brown tree from Lowe’s trying to be rebellious of “tree lots.” We learned a lesson.


Nope it’s not Thanksgiving; nor is it New Years, but this year I want to give thanks for my friends and my family. To each and every single one of you – thank you for being you!
