The Beginning of a New Year

When January comes around and it's time to take down the Christmas decor, I'm never ready for the house to go back to normal yet. So a few years ago I started collecting wintery, non-Christmas snowman decor to put up for January. It's always the coldest, most winter-like month in Florida so I think it's fitting. I don't have nearly as much of it as I do Christmas and Fall decor, but I still enjoy putting it up.

Look closely and you'll notice that even the front magazine in the basket has a snowman on it. : )

A couple of weeks ago I was doing some cleaning and organizing and came across this blue blanket that was one of my baby blankets so Idecided to put it out with blue-winter stuff.

The snowflake is a cookie cutter I got on clearance after Christmas.

I like to switch out the quilts on my ladder with the seasons and for January I use this one that my grandparents made me.

And finally....the front door.

This was another red dress from Nana that she didn't get a chance to wear in December.

One night when I went in to check on her before I went to bed I found her sound asleep like this! I told Robert she probably needed some extra prayer time for some of her naughty behavior that day. : )

I forgot to include Charlie, our newest "animal" addition, to the Christmas pictures. Meemaw and Papaw Cantrell gave him to Halie.

Robert's mom and dad let us borrow their 4-wheeler for awhile and one Saturday morning I went out by myself while Robert stayed with Halie. I came up on the horses out in their pasture and nosy-nib Toothpick had to check everything out.

She always likes to put her nose in your business. : )

I love her eyes.
There's almost always a few deer hanging out in the same spot.
Q-tip and Rita came along too, they love to run alongside while I drive. Q-Tip also loves to aggravate and chase the horses. I don't know how he hasn't gotten himself killed because they're always kicking at him.
Beautiful, sweet, and bossy Toothpick.

My sweet Q.
Rita's getting so big! Most cow dogs are some mixture of Cur dog, but as she's gotten older we've realized she's a Lab/pit bull mix. Hopefully she'll still be a good cow dog. (If I don't spoil her too much in the mean time!) She's just so sweet, it's hard not to.
