We wish you a merrick christmas


This is what we call live reporting, bringing you merry merrick wishes straight from the heart of the home this December 25th. Christmas has been a smash success this year, even though we promised no presents (yeah right). My biggest present for everyone was decking out the house in fresh wreaths and garlands and Micha made us a new set of stockings at the 11th hour last night.

















Instead of the normal gimme gimme christmas, we promised no presents but instead turned the tables and all got lots of presents for mom. She cried! Micha and I surprised everyone by racing down the stairs in matching vintage red union suits. Yeah, I have a collection going on.

I sincerely hope you had a wonderful holiday season, filled with much love and lots of cookies and kisses.

  12. Beautiful!! Love the photo of you two together!! It makes me smile to think there are still such lovely people out there! I just discovered blogs recently when I found Katy Elliot's, as I am fixing up my little house here in Georgia. I stumbled upon yours off her list, and I am so glad I did!! They have opened up a whole new world (my friends on FB are beginning to bore me!:). The little glimpses into your neat life are fun and inspiring! Thank you and Happy Holidays!!!

  20. Forgoing presents to just get stuff for your mom is just like the first chapter of Little Women! Louisa May would be so proud!

  22. Your posts never cease to make me cry, literal tears welling up in my peepers, everything always looks like a story book, especially the ones with your family. It's like something out of the Betsy Books! This is what I picture the Ray Family Christmas being like.
