Christmas Moments

Don't you love how people are starting to say "moments" to mean little vignettes? Like on Design Star, I love when David Bromstad or Vern Yip say "this moment over here" or "that moment over there". So hilarious. 
When I woke up this morning, it was snowing, and I had little moments all over the place. Like this one in my front yard. Little red berries, snow, mini lights.
And these little snow angels bundled up and ran outside immediately to start having a snowy moment.
Green ball moment on top of the bookshelf.
On top of the other bookshelf, these creepy elves are having a moment. I put these elves up because they remind me of the ones my grandmother had and because they freak out Emma.
Sticky gel thing moment.
Partridge family in a pear tree. Made this little bird last week when all I wanted to do was sit and do needlework. Sequin moment.
Another bird, the one with the thumbtacked feet. He's having a long, painful moment.
Ikea tray with candles and ornaments. That tray is the best purchase I ever made. Proud consumer moment.
Mistletoe hanging in foyer. For Ethan this is a run away moment.
New white wool coat hanging on the hook moment.
 Christmas village post toddler earthquake moment. Maggie can't keep her hands off this thing. Anyway, the best thing about these beautiful moments is that the made up for the moment when I was cleaning up cat barf this morning. Ms. Norwood moment. 


  1. And I'm having a "Thank heavens for the internet" moment because it makes you moving away feel not quite so like you're leaving the planet. Who would make me laugh? Who would write funny and clever posts? Who would find something nice to say about 10" of snow? Ain't no one like you, Katie. Happy advent!

  2. I used to want to be Halle Berry but now I'd prefer to be Katie Steuernagle. Even if it meant moving to Maryland. Warmest Christmas wishes, and I love the vignettes, er moments. BTW, MS Norwood is a hoot!

  3. Just stumbled onto your blog today, and am currently having a laughing so hard I cannot breathe moment. Thank you for that. :)

  4. Yes! let's all have a few sticky gel window things moments. These are what make the holidays so special, doncha think?

  5. I just had a relaxing moment reading your blog. Now the word "moment" is in my head! I will have to use it, a lot. Thanks for all of the funny moments you offer through your blog.

  6. This post cracked me up. I love the Christmas village! I had a similar moment today when my cat spilled an entire berry smoothie all over our rug.

  7. I think I'm having a senior moment! lol

  8. Hahahaha. So many things to love about this post. My sister-in-law and I have been sitting here silently in the living room while I check blogs and she reads her book and she kept giving me awkward glances while I read your post and kept bursting out in giggles. Awkward inlaw moment.
