A Quick Monday Hello

Santa Baby visited on Sunday!
Hello!  Obviously I didn't have time to write a Sunday post yesterday.  We had a wonderful time together.  The Christmas menu is so much easier to prepare than Thanksgiving and we all love it.

Every time we see Piper, she has changed.  Even when it hasn't been very long.  She is such a lot of fun and the baby is cuddly cute.  Piper likes anything having to do with cars and I found a very pre-school friendly set on Amazon.  They are larger than Matchbox cars but still perfect for small hands.  Once she opened the box that had her cars in it, they took up all of her interest the rest of the visit.

I'm taking a few days rest to read and enjoy some Christmas movies.  Reading is still a bit of a challenge since the vision in my right eye has not completely returned.  The main difference is that I cannot read small font and I have to take breaks so eye strain doesn't set in.

One of my favorite Hallmark movies is The Nine Lives of Christmas.  I plan to watch it this afternoon. Of course, it has kitties in it so I would love it but it is also a good (believable) story.  I use credit to purchase a couple Christmas movies a year since so many of my old favorites are no longer available on television.

I plan to post some more Christmas decorating photos this week (I have been showing some on Instagram... @coffeeteabooksandme).  Thanksgiving was early this year so we had almost an extra week of the official Christmas season. 

Now to pour another cup of coffee (in my new Pioneer Woman mug Piper helped her mommy choose) and have an extended quiet time. As I write, there is Christmas music playing on the CD player and rare winter sunlight is pouring through the Study window.  I think it is a sign to have a good day.

What a sweet little Santa Elf. She is so cute. I have been watching Christmas movies as much as possible as Mr does not like them so I watch when he is napping. Have a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

Thanks for mentioning the Hallmark movie that you liked (I went through your link and purchased it, so I hope you get some credit! (-:) Would you be willing to list other Hallmark Christmas movies that you particularly enjoy? We don't have any form of TV - just purchase the occasional movie to watch based on others' recommendations. I know there are a LOT of Hallmark movies out there. They seem to be really popular, but I'm sure some are better than others. Last year, we purchased A Christmas Card and When Angels Sing, and they are both really good! -Joy said...

Oh, I do enjoy that movie too! Anything with cats is always a plus for this cat lady.
