    Looks like a fun time for everyone! I loved the pepper tree and fruity candy cane. Pinterest perhaps? Those are the things that I pin but never actually do. Way to go! 😉

      Actually, I saw the candy cane in a Kroger coupon book and just did the pepper tree myself. Madeline and I added the pomegranate seeds. I stopped going on Pinterest because it made me feel like a big slacker. 😉

    I HATE Pinterest with a passion. Don’t get the allure. I bet that tree would work well with green apple slices also. Cute pictures – and YAY for a new niece! So exciting!

    I like to think I don’t NEED Pinterest because I have enough of my own creative idea — which I’d never do anything with if I was sitting in front of Pinterest! Lovely pictures of your lovely family, Kate. Thank you for sharing. Being a cat person myself, I’m thrilled that Fang has joined the Wicker clan. Like you, my focus this day is on keeping the joy of Christmas alive. One day at a time. All year long! Best wishes for a very happy and blessed New Year.

    YAY Fang! I knew that little kitty would find a way to stick around! So happy for Fang and for you sweet Wickers! Another heart to love! =) Looks like you had lots of fun…I sure have missed you guys! I’ll call/text you tomorrow! See you soon! =)
