My Little Elves

Santa's secret stuff around
the house........
my secret stuff.  ; )
Do you like my new
snowman cup?
I got it at Macy's, if you
want to get one.
I've had this marble block
for many years.
I love all the phrases it
says on each side.

It was sweet of my son
to bring me chocolate cupcakes.
Snow globes
Santa bear.

My new elf
*Hobby Lobby
My other two precious elves.
*Francesca already likes clothes like her grandma haha.

*Mia and grandma love their soft cozy flannels.  ; )

Power went out.
I lit my four favorite candles.
She is so tiny
she fits in my hand.
The Christmas spirit is upon us.
(love how this picture turned out,
as it looks like a beautiful spirit swirling around).
It's still raining off and on here.
The last flowers before Winter.
Nel and Jess already got their tree!
I want to get mine this weekend.
We were talking
just wondered,
which trees give the best scent?

I love the photo of the candles in a swirl! And your two little elves are the MOST precious Christmas blessing! LOVE the plaid...I use it everywhere in my home for the winter months. I've learned a lot about love from my kids and grandkids. It just opens our hearts even wider! Holiday hugs!

Karen said...

I love seeing the new pics of Mia and Francesca. Your new snowman coffee mug is cute. I had a small snowman collection and Kaedyn loves snow globes. Have fun choosing your tree and decorating it. 'Tis the season!!

Oh my!!!You made me smile!Adorable Grands!I do love your gorgeous vignettes,such beauty!Hugs!

Pam said...

HAHA...the best scented tree, one that don't smell HAHA...just kidding. I don't do live trees, allergies. Look at your two adorable little elvies. ADORABLE. Love the cup that matches the PJs! Everything looks so cute. I have made some cool pics with the tree lights and the camera but pointing the camera to the top of the tree, snapping it but as I snap I move the camera down the tree. Not tried it with my cell....oh no, now I have to try that! Thanks for the awesome comments on my blog. I have been painting about 15 yrs now and I have done some really cool paintings and some that I just could not get them to the point that I liked them. But I do however love painting my card and having prints to mail out.

Francesca and Mia are the two cutest little girls ever. I think I go for the final more too. Just so cuddly. I love that mug from Macy's simple but elegant. I wonder what made the candles swirl in that photo? Why did you son bring you cupcakes - sweet of him. I do love Christmas!

Your grand girlies are so adorable, Sheri! I love all of your pretty snow globes! It's hard to believe December is upon us. I like the way your son treats you with goodies. Those cupcakes make my mouth water. I hope the rains are not doing any damage to your area. California has had more than its share of problems this year! Have a great week. ♥

Ann said...

Your grandkids are too cute and adorable ♥
It is so true that much of the things we know about love
and how to love we learn at home. Your chocolate cupcakes
look so yummy, too bad I have to be conscious of my sugar :(
But I love a sip of hot choco during the Holidays,
I just can't help myself. I love snow globes and Santas and
flannel shirts too. Have a nice day ♥


Patricia said...

Oh, those little girls are priceless Sheri, you must be so proud of them both. Your Christmas looks wonderful and cosy. My grandson would love your snow globes, so festive - he collects them these days. Enjoy your Christmas season.


I've heard the most fragrant trees are Frazier Firs. your granddaughters are adorable. Love that mug too.

Precious, precious! Hello my sweet Sheri! Sending you big hugs as I RUN out the door to school. We got snow again!

Jeanie said...

You're right about the Christmas spirit but oh, you have it big time. And your little elves are adorable. Love those PJs! Isn't it fun, being a grandma and having those dear little ones with you? I very nearly bought Carson a snow globe at Ikea and then we moved somewhere else in the store and I didn't see them again.

Oh, it's all wonderful and wonderous! Merriest!

Pilar said...

Your son is so sweet Sheri! Those cupcakes look delicious! Your granddaughters are adorable!

Sara - Villa Emilia said...

Your posts are gorgeous, Sheri! ❤
Who wouldn't love elves and cupcakes, cute babies in tartan, roses, candles, fairies and teddybears... This post made me smile oh so happily.
Have a lovely December and enjoy your Christmas preparations!
Big hugs!

Stephanie said...

Sweet Sheri, my a darling post. Your little elves are just the cutest! And oh, those plaid jammies look so cozy :)

I wish I could join you for a cup of coffee and chocolate cupcake. Much love to you, friend!

Benita said...

Sheri, I love your Christmas decorations! And those little elves of yours are absolutely adorable!! Frazier firs and Blue Spruce have great scents...we always have an artificial tree, so I will sometimes get those little evergreen smelly things at Walmart! The cupcakes look delicious!! Have a great one!!

Carla from The River said...

This was fun.. I love the plaid cup, shirt and p.j's. :-)

Dewena said...

Yes, I love the snowman cup! But even sweeter are your two precious little elves--shouldn't girl elves have a prettier name than elf? That special effects candle picture is very cool! Just wondering, Sheri, what is your very favorite candle? I'm always on the watch for new candle recommendations!

Chocolate cupcakes from your son, that's so nice! I love it that almost always when one of my sons comes to see me early in the day that he stops by Starbucks for my favorite drink. It's the little things that count, right?

Marilyn Miller said...

So fun to see your sweet little ones. I never can figure out what tree smells the best. Mine smelled so good in the car, but after putting it up in the house I can't smell it. Chocolate cupcakes look delicious. What a nice son. That rose is gorgeous. Oh yes, I like the new header picture too.Oh snowglobes and bears are special at Christmas too. Love the mug, but if I brought another mug or teacup home my husband would think I have lost my mind. I will just admire yours. Enjoy!

Holly said...

Such beautiful holiday moments.

Tanza Erlambang - Every Day Issues said...

I love chocolate and chocolate cupcakes.
have a great day

Sandi said...

How can pictures be warm and snowy at the same time?


Love the flannel mug!

Beautiful snow globes!

NanaDiana said...

Love the 'swirly' picture of the candles---the spirit of Christmas maybe? Your son is a good kid if he brings you cupcakes! Now I want one! lol
Those little girls are just beyond adorable, Sheri, and I know they light up your life! So precious.

I think the Frasier Fir probably has the strongest scent but I wouldn't swear to it. That is what my son always gets. xo Diana

Debby Ray said...

Your photos are always stunning...right out of a magazine stunning! Your touches of Christmas are so bright and cheery and I cannot believe how those grands of yours are growing...they are both so very precious and I am LOVING the red plaid! Have yourself a Merry little Christmas!

I got an artificial tree this year and I love it. I also love Mrs. Meyers pine scented cleaning sprays.

Carola Bartz said...

Your "real" elves are so super cute! We haven't got a tree yet, we're waiting until my daughter comes home from college. She can choose the tree and she also decorates it.

Roberta said...

Hi Shery,I live in Italy and I love seeing your beautiful photos!
Have a great weekend,

Arti said...

Wow! Your pictures of the Christmas festival are absolutely wonderful Sherri. Such joy to see your 'precious elves', bundles of joy and cheer. The marble cube is delightful, I love collecting such souvenirs that have thoughtful messages imprinted on them.

PS: About the picture query you asked on my blog... I resize my pictures to 800*600 pixels before uploading them. Then I select the size as 'Original' in image settings. I hope this helps, if you have any more questions, please do let me know.

Susan said...

A most lovely post, Sheri. Beautiful photos, as always, too. Your little granddaughter "elves" are sweetie pies, that's for sure. Thanks for all your visits. Love them. Susan

Kirsten Steen said...

Oh my... gotta love the flannel cup on flannel shirt! So much sweetness here for the holidays. Hope you're enjoying! Wish you a wonderful season!

Vintage Girl 901 said...

I love all your cuties, but the sweetest and cutest of them all are those sweet babies.

baili said...

A really charming post dear Sheri!!!

Absolutely loved your most precious little elfs:)

So cute this tea cup is!

Yes I can feel the magic of Christmas through these spiritual candle lights:)

Enjoy the charm of season with your family my friend!!!

Michelle B said...

It looks like you are ready for Christmas! I hope you got your tree all decorated by now. Wishing the best for you and your family this Holiday Season.

Lisa said...

Those are the cutest babies!!!! Love the plaid cup! I used a lot of black/red plaid this year.

Tammie Lee said...

Lovely holiday glimpses of your world. So sweet that you son brought you treats.

I believe it is fir trees that have the Christmas scent, so good. I walk through the forest here and it is always the firs, but only certain ones.

lovely Christmas and Solstice to you Sheri!
