Christmas past

I haven’t used these sweet ornaments on a Christmas tree in probably 15 years or more! We had to dig deep for these, but so worth it! Do y’all have ornaments that you don’t use? When we were first married, I had a Christmas tree in every room. I have worlds of ornaments, but I don’t have the energy or the space for a house full of Christmas trees. Maybe next year! #goals❤️ #MERRYCHRISTMAS


With just three gifts floating around on @amazon, I can just about say we are officially ready for #Christmas! The #santabait is up, cards are sent and most of the gifts are wrapped! We are excited! Since I am under chemo quarantine — avoiding the flu– I am staying home from all the celebrations this year, but enjoying all the Christmas I can from a distance! Soaking up every minute! I am so grateful for so many precious people sending #christmascards and happiest! We are INCREDIBLY blessed! #GODISGOOD 🎉🕊️♥️🎅🤶❄️⛄🍭🎄

‘I’ve Been So Good’

“I’ve been so good…” – My parents gave this exact ornament to Pepper several years ago. One year, he dropped it and it shattered. Not long afterwards, we were at my mother-in-law’s house at a family gathering of some sort and we were trying to remember what the ornament said. My aunt Monette said it said something that reminded her of Pep. He suggested “an angel.” Needless to say, the whole room fell in the floor laughing! Next Christmas, mom brought a replacement, because reminding all the “Santa’s” in the room of how “good” he has been, is DEFINITELY a “Pepper” thing!


“Angels We Have Heard On High” — My sweet crafty friend, Marge Bridges, made me these sweet cotton boll angels no long after Pepper and I were married. They are so precious, just like the lady who made them! And aren’t they such a Mississippi-style of ornament? Every Southern girl should have one! #ilovechristmas
