Merry Christmas — And a Big Thank You

Merry Christmas 2015

I just ate 8 1/2 baby carrots and hid 4 cookies.

This is what it looked liked after Landon and I put out cookies and milk for Santa, and carrots for his reindeer:

It’s almost 1pm, and I haven’t finished wrapping all the gifts for the Bleasdale Clan, but L’s and Don’s are under the tree and I wanted to get this post to you and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

The holidays are definitely a time to slow down, and it has been for me.

After posting my Christmas Home Tour, I was busy making little gifts for L’s teachers, and we enjoyed seeing him play the violin in the winter concert.

L and I have been cuddling up on the sofa to watch TV together, we baked cake, and today we went to the gym together.

It is so warm here in New York that we don’t have snow — it was a freakish 70 degrees today — but we still bought a new sled for L. There is still a lot of time for snow to appear this winter.

Before I wrap more gifts, I want to say thank you.

I want you to know that I appreciate every one of you who finds my little corner of the Web. My hope is that you stay a while and dig around to find posts you enjoy.

Blogging has been my passion since February 2009, and I absolutely love it. I’m blessed to make a living with writing and social media, and it’s amazing how many opportunities and fun experiences my family and I have enjoyed because of my blog.

I love connecting with you and sharing a bit of my life with you. Hearing from you in comments makes my day every day. I read every comment and so enjoy them.

Dagmar’s Home has evolved so much over the years, and it will continue to. I’m looking forward to it — and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

P.S. If you still need a gift, here are last-minute gift ideas. The shadow box gift is something you can make in just a few minutes if you have a frame lying around, you can easily personalize it, and anyone would love this gift.
