Visiting Christmas Past



Hello friends. have you recovered from Thanksgiving's over indulgences?
I just finished a piece of pumpkin pie. True. :)


Today we are visiting a few posts from Christmases past here at Poofing the Pillows.

Let me just say, thank goodness for improved photography skills!
Looking back is an eye opener both as a reminder of wonderful times
and as a reminder of how far we've come taking pictures.


The time I hosted a tiny little Christmas party. 


Red Velvet Bundt Cake served at Christmas Bunko party. So delicious and beautiful plus it served a lot of people.





It's fun to look back at how things change and how they stay the same.
Counting my blessings this holiday season. 

Christmas in Texas blog hop starts December 4th.

We have been decorating all weekend so though we are cleaned up from Thanksgiving and the house is mostly done except for our main tree and the girls' tree in their room, we are done but let me tell you we are exhausted. Time to rest. I love that pillow by the way and thanks for sharing.

I am still finishing a few leftovers! Some went into the freezer! I remember my early blog pics, which were not too bad, but much better now! Ha! Then again I may look back on my current pics... I bought a pro camera so that helped a lot. But the person must have skills too. I keep working on those. Have a nice week. Sheila

I was just checking in to see when you Texas gals were showcasing Christmas. I am so glad it isn't for a few days because I am behind in all aspects of my life and now I have a few days to catch up before I visit Texas!
