Merry Christmas to you all!

I hope you guys had one extraordinary and Merry Christmas. I hope you  had lots of unforgettable moments with your loved ones. I hope you had a lot of fun and a lot of delicious food.
In order to make the other people's Christmases smooth and nice I had to work seven days in a row.But with a little help from my family and ....pets I enjoyed the magic of the Christmas season. The Christmas lights, the multiple batches of Gingerbread cookies, our favorites this season, the Christmas band concert, the delicious meals cooked by my husband, the Christmas eve dinner with my brother and sister-in-law , the Christmas dinner and opening the presents with the kids. I did not miss any of the Christmas fun,I enjoyed it in full.

Illustration Friday:Refrain

My input for this week's Illustration Friday topic Refrain. I guess I covered the second meaning of this word: repeating a verse or a group of verses throughout a song or a poem. I do not know what she is singing about but she looks like she is enjoying  it. Ink pen and watercolor.

Getting ready for Christmas.

It is this time of the year. Yesterday almost the whole day I spent decorating for Christmas. And I am not done yet!!! My daughter and her friend helped with the Christmas tree and baked delicious peanut butter cookies. I am glad I finally completed the idea I got from Pintrest last year. I made this Christmas tree out of a tomato plant cage and some lights from Menard's. I think it turned out great. It looks great on my porch.
