It's Christmas Week...Boy, did it ever sneak up on me this year. I actually decorated much earlier this year. We were in Branson, MO for Thanksgiving week and everything was done before I left. Whew!
After that, I'm not sure what happened? Suddenly it is here and I have two presents purchased. I don't have a huge list but two isn't going to do it for sure! OnlySon still thinks Santa should visit. Yes, I realize he is 27...and married...but he's still the Only. We will be doing MAJOR shopping tomorrow!
Here's a few of my decorations this year. I changed a few things from last year like my living room tree, etc.
I finally bought a 9 ft. PRELIT tree. How I loved not putting a million strings on a tree this year. I decided to do the tree in Mercury glass (which I love) and a coral and green. Fun tree to decorate!
The antique oak mantel. I used some of the same decorations and ribbons:
My favorite thing to bring out each year is my nativity. It touches my heart to put out the baby Jesus and think of His Birth, His love and sacrifice for us. He truly is the Reason for the Season!
On the oak Hall Tree, I put a Christmas tree with two frames. The frames both show young love. On the left is our son and wife who married this year. On the right, are my maternal grandparents who married in 1925!
I love my Friendly Village dishes and they will stay out all winter:
The dining room is pretty much the same. I added the sugared village to the table.
I'll close with own little helper. He stayed with me every step of the way while decorations.
From our house to your's, Merry Christmas!
