Merry Christmas!

Oh, that I still had the energy I had as the little girl above at Christmas!

Oh, the cookies I meant to bake.

Oh, the posts I meant to write.

And here it is on the eve of Christmas Eve
and little has been done,
especially the visits to all the blog friends
who left such sweet comments to my last post.

I do like to visit everyone before I write another post here at the Window but I can't let this Christmas pass without wishing all of you a Merry Christmas or a Happy Hanukkah.

My very best to each of you, enjoy these next few days and treasure those you love!


P.S. Would you like to see what RH and I bought each other for Christmas?

We're hoping to welcome two sweet dachshunds
to claim these new beds in January.

There are new blankets and new toys waiting too.

And a mama and a daddy who already love
BreeBree and James Mason.

RH and I plan to celebrate Christmas a long time
because we got a little late start on it this year.

We hope yours is merry and bright too.

[Sunday morning: Oops, a friend emailed me that I didn't have comments turned on! Sorry, fixing it now but for all those who've already visited, I know you are wishing us a merry Christmas, as we are you.]


  1. Oh, that beautiful, little girl is so beaming with the bright light of Christmas (and a bunch of presents, too!;).

    This Christmas, however, you and your hubby have been blessed with two bundles of joy. I can't wait for Bree and Mason to be loved by their new mama and daddy, as you will be such precious gifts to each other.

    Merry Christmas, Dewena and RH!

  2. Oh, I'm so happy you'll be inviting 2 more pups into your home! What happy pups they will be when they see how much love they are gonna be blessed with! Merry Christmas and a VERY HAPPY New Year to you, sweet lady and to your family! You look so adorable in that pic. You kind of look like Susan Branch!

  3. Hi Dewena,
    I found your blog from Nancy over at Joyful Cottage.
    Reading your post about your new dogs thrilled me, especially after reading about your loss.
    We had two dogs, both gone now. I understand the loss.
    But now the new excitement! I'll be following you!

  4. Merry Christmas to you Dewena! Oh, what a special new year it will be with two little puppies to brighten up your home. The picture is adorable!

  5. What exciting news dear Dewena! You and RH are going to be such good parents to Bree & Mason.

    Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2018.

    Love & hugs ~ FlowerLady

RH and I love your comments! They are sent to my email for moderation first but I do hit publish as soon as I read them. A few commenters' comments are not sent to my email for some reason but I try to visit that section on my design page twice a day to see if they're hiding there so I can publish them. I went the first 3 years of blogging not knowing that was there and when I discovered it there were many pages of old comments that never got published. I was so embarrassed and contacted recent ones but hid in shame from those who had given up long ago.

In these busy days I appreciate so much when you take time to comment. Thank you so much!
