Ordinary December Days

December. So many exciting days. But some of the best are the ordinary ones, don't you agree?

Preparing to visit Grandma Flo in her nursing home...

Snuggling with little a little pup on a lazy Saturday morning...

Receiving text messages from my successful hunter, who suddenly seems so much older...

Watching Alfred Hitchcock movies while sipping vanilla latte...

Choosing which precious pair of Christmas jammies my little Flynn will wear. All day long...

Playing Rudolph Monopoly...which somehow is so much more fun than the original...

 Making dinner just a little bit more special on an ordinary December evening...

Licking the bowl after baking...

yummy Double Chocolate Brownies...just because.

This wonderful time passes so quickly.
These are just some of the small ways we try to enjoy each and every moment. : )


  1. So sweet and so many warm and wonderful memories in the making! Love following along!

  2. I said before, I'm coming to live with y'all, wink and giggles. Many Holiday Blessings to you and your family.

  3. Aren't these just the best moments ever! :-) We have a drawer of Christmas PJ's too! Haven't tried Rudolph Monopoly yet though, looks like fun. Enjoy the day!


  4. Fun times, and your children will relive over and over. Thanks for sharing these special moments with us.

  5. Mary Jo, your posts are so sentimental they almost drive me to tears. Good tears. Happy tears. They certainly stir memories from my children's childhood. I feel like I know your family. I once had someone say that I may not want to post pictures of my grandbabies because of all the crazies out there. Well, that's who I am and these posts of simple days with family are what keep us at peace and sane in a crazy world. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I love your ordinary days. I also live seeing pictures of your cute kiddos and adorable dog. Happy Wednesday!

  7. Yes, these are the days to remember. and thank you me and hubby hadn't decided what new board game to get this Christmas and Rudolph Monopoly looks fun!

  8. Such precious moments - recorded here to forever look back and treasure. Love love love...!!! xoxo

  9. Ordinary days are wonderful days aren't they! Happy Christmas! xx
