Merry Christmas!

Well, Christmas is really in the air now, here at the Monogram household. Right now, we are all busy preparing the big Christmas Eve feast of fishes and pasta and filet's oh my! Our table will host not only fresh calamari, cleaned, cut and fried to perfection by the Monogram's, but also octopus. Yep, OCTOPUS. I myself, do not partake in the octopus but it's always on our Christmas Eve table none-the-less. I'll fill you in on all the details later in the week, but for now, here's a little peek of the happenings around here this week.


The cookies have been baked with the help of my trusty assistants, mini monogram #1 & 2….



The Gingerbread House and it's trusty little Train...



The stockings have been hung by the Chimney with care…



The house is bedazzled, hoping Santa soon will be there...


The entryway’s gleaming all shining with lights…



And a mere two streets away, in the second floor window of my neighbors house, sits this little sight...
(I have one thing to say.... FRAH-GEEEL-AY!)

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL,
& TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

P.S. Monogram Momma is taking a little blogging vacation and probably won't return until Thursday, the 28th; but you never know.. I still might pop in to say and quick hello before then!
