I am sharing a few vignettes from my sunroom today.  I love our sunroom, but it is a difficult place to take pictures.  In the day time, the sun is too bright, and at night, the reflections in the windows are distracting.  Snowmen live in my sunroom during the holidays.  We don’t get much snow in Arkansas, but I can pretend.

A couple of years ago, when I saw the top hat on the Christmas tree at Pat’s Backporch Musings, I knew I had to copy her idea for the tree in our sunroom.  Thanks for the inspiration, Pat.

Several years ago, I ordered this candle lamp from Lynn at Lynn’s Gifts from the Heart.  The “candle” cover can be changed for the seasons, and I also ordered this adorable snowman cover from her.

Some of you may recall that I shared a pretty little light box given to me by my friends, Carter and Suzie.  I posted about it here.  It had the logo for our graduation class on it.  I told you I couldn’t wait to show it to you at Christmastime.

They had a photo of our family room at Christmastime printed on one of the glass pieces to fit into the box.  Isn’t that cool?  Last year’s Christmas trees were posted here.

We have the two trees up this year, but only one of them is decorated!  As some of you know, our son has a new baby, who is hospitalized three hours from our home, and his two sisters are staying with us.  In addition, our daughter’s son, who is six years old, has the flu.  Things have been a little crazy at our house this year, and I’m not sure the second tree will get decorated.  If it does, I will post pictures.

Some of you have asked about our grandson.  Dylan Cooper, who will apparently be called Coop by some and Cooper by others, was born 3 months early and weighed under 2 pounds.  He will be hospitalized for several months.  Although he has had a few set backs, he is a little fighter, and for now, his health seems to be improving.  Our family deeply appreciates that so many of you are praying for our little fighter.  Please continue. Cooper’s sisters are staying with us, while their parents are at the hospital with him 3 hours from our home.  I really am “snowed under”, and I’m so sorry that I haven’t been able to visit my favorite blogs.
I am linking this post to A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.  I’m so glad you came to visit me.  laurie

Almost everyone here in Minnesota has some sort of snowman collection. Usually they stay out on display all winter. I have thinned my collection as the older I get the less I like snow and winter. Love your snowman collection.

I really love you snowman collection! I have several and usually put them out for January! Praying for Cooper and all of your family! Hugs, Linda

Thanks for sharing your pretty snowman collection. That box with the picture of your living room is a real treasure - what a nice gift.
Thanks for the update on your new Grandson. ((hugs))

Well, first, I pray that your little Coop (I like that!) gains so much strength health that he astounds the neonatal doctors and nurses. I know you wish you were closer than three hours away.

And second, I think your snowman collection is my very favorite one of all the treasures you've shown on your blog. Truly, I think it is. I love it.

I must direct my daughter to your snowman room. I love them too, especially the framed picture of the man and woman, with the dog looking at the snowman. I wonder if it is from an old magazine? I have a huge collection of early 1900s women's magazines that I treasure for the covers especially. I've been tempted to frame them but want to keep the magazines intact so instead I prop them around and hope no one sets a wet drink on them. Love and prayers to Cooper and all of you.
