Our average-sized Christmas tree decorated mostly by me, but with a few little hands helping out too. I love really big and full trees, but for now, our house is not big enough for that. I hope someday soon that we will move to a bigger house and that I can start to display those bigger trees.
Please look at the pretty tree skirt. We just got this, and I really love it! It is a Thomas Kinkade scene that is fiber optic. The tree lights in the scene twinkle, and the houses all light up. I am just in awe of it!
I put two pics of my fireplace mantle on here. This first one with the decorations all lit up, but without my additions that I decided on after a few days went by. I will be changing it again, because I want to get a live poinsettia to put in the middle, so will be rearranging things to allow room for that.
I bought some artificial poinsettia flowers to place in the middle of my garland to add some color. Too much green in my opinion. I like it better this way.
This is my 15th Christmas with my husband, and I got this ornament a few years ago that changes years if you turn the knob on the top. I thought it was pretty, so I took a picture of it. I have been collecting Hallmark ornaments since my first son was born and get them for each of my kids every year as well as one for my husband and myself.
Here is a picture of our snow-covered street about a week ago. I am guessing that we will be having a white Christmas.
I may be out of the blogging loop for a little bit while my husband is at home here with us. Please note though that in a few weeks when he has to leave again, I will back making my rounds again.
Have a safe and Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas...Happy New Year to all of you and yours!!
Hugs and Blessing,
