It’s Friday and I’m linking up with Jeannett at Life Rearranged to share cell phone pics. Join us!

Matthias and I built a killer gingerbread house. We’re already planning next years!

Our house was clean for like, 5 minutes, and I thought I should document it.

I am totally into ponchos. I should do a whole post about it. So cozy–like carrying your blankie with you all day.

Nana, or I mean Santa, got David a new keyboard for Christmas. He has been playing it with passion. So fun!

Evening light and birdies on a wire. There are bits of beauty to be found.

Raindrops on a succulent in our front yard. We’ve been loving all the rain.

David received the superstar award at school. That kid is a heart melter.

Every year these friends and I have a special Christmas breakfast at Madonna Inn. So special, so dear to my heart.

Matthias and I ran into the gas station to grab some snacks and he said, “let’s play checkers!”. Love that kid.

Now to sip more coffee, take in the twinkly lights and do a lot of nothing. Perfect! Happy Friday to you! Are you off to see family and friends?


  1. Hi Lisa,
    I love the family picture of you guys in the email that you just sent out… best one yet!
    House looks great! enjoy your time with your family and Merry Christmas from San Diego.

  2. I am so enjoying your pics. Your home is lovely and warm. My heart melts when I feel your love for your chidren, husband and home. The world would be a much better place if they could all find mine and your happy place. I am blessed to have found mine and can feel and tell you have yours. I hope you and your family have the best holiday and enjoy peace and blessings in the coming year.

  3. You pull off the poncho look so well! I’m afraid I just couldn’t do it…they wouldn’t look right on my body.
    Love your gingerbread house. We havent made one this year and I know my girls would love to:)
    Merry Christmas!

  4. I am so with you on ponchos–its like wearing an adorable blanket all day. I have a charcoal grey cable knit one that I love to wear with jeans and black boots.

    Cute picture of David rocking the keyboard!

  5. I love David’s enthusiasm with his keyboard and his music! I’m sure that warms your heart…and yes! Do a poncho post! Love the one pictured, so cozy and warm looking…Great looking gingerbread house by the way, we have had little success with them so far, but this makes me want to give it another try. Merry Christmas!
