Wordless Wednesday

Blogging on hold...

Well I have been MIA for a while and though I could say it is because I am busy with the holidays that is not all true... My dear lappy died so I have not had the ease of access to type up a blog while Adlie plays at my feet in the living room safe from climbing under the desk and getting in to wires or in to my sewing stuff so I am more than likely buying a new laptop when our taxes come in though my husbands wonderful Uncle Ron thinks he may be able to get her back to running she will be my back up seeing as it was her HDD that went out. I have been so upset over it because I thought I lost every picture of Adlie's first year.... but we will see.. I will be back soon to talk about Adlie's birth and this last year with the greatest late Christmas present our family ever received. I hope you all have/had a VERY Merry Christmas and I will be back soon!

Not Me Monday...

Welcome to The Merritt Family blog! Its Monday and that means MckMamais doing her NMM post! Head over to her blog and read what she and everyone else has NOT been doing!

This week I did NOT catch William in our Christmas tree!And I did NOT take pictures!

I also did NOT make Adlie some cute "party panties" and wrap an empty box to take her picture for our Christmas cards!
(this is the one I am including in our Christmas cards!)
(here is a better look at the back of the bloomers)

I did NOT drink coffee rather late the other night causing Adlie to stay up extra late!

I am NOT continually peeking out the window for the first sight of snow!

I am NOT super mad at our mortgage company for STILL withholding our escrow amount! We are hoping to hear from them later today about that... oh and while I am mad I am also MAD at the IRS for taking FOREVER to get our amended return finished! * 9 weeks in off season is amazing they said it could take 16 weeks!!! Seriously 16 weeks!!!

I did NOT finish making Adlie's Birthday Invitations and I will NOT be showing you all in a later post * which will be full of questions and Ideas for her party!

I cannot believe my baby girl will be 1 in 20 days! It is so unreal how fast this year has gone....

Well there you have it Y'all!

Show us your life.... Christmas Tree

Its Friday and that means Show us your life over at Kelly's blog! And as you can see from the title its Christmas Tree time!!!! Our tree has been up for well over a month! (It was naked of ornaments until last week) We had to train our new little kitten to stay out of the tree and I didn't want broken ornaments! Yes I caught William in the tree several times... Many of those times he was all the way at the top!!!! As seen below!

Our tree this year is full of many handmade ornaments. Most of them made by my Grandma Niles... Here are a few from the previous years... She make us new ones new ones every year!
Here are a select few of our other ornaments on our tree... The first was Adlie's very first ornament! (I still need to get her babies first Christmas ornament!) The next is our first Christmas ornaments then a few others including one from Holland given to me by one of my preschoolers a few years ago!
And Last but not least some decorations and our TREE!!!!! As you can see our cats think the tree is the best place to sleep! If you look closely you can also see that our angel has a guitar! (that was Matt's doing!) Oh and there are a few shots of our mantle and of my VERY favorite nativity scene.

So now that you have seen our tree head over to Kelly's blog and take a look at a few more! It truly puts you in the mood for Christmas!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
