With the addition of 8 inches of snow it has really put me in the decorating mood. It is so pretty outside, it mesmerizes me to sit in the sun room and watch the big flakes come drifting down. It wasn’t a huge storm but enough for school to be canceled much to the delight of the children. My grand kids were out at 7:30 AM on their sleds and then came to my house about 9 and spent the day playing in the snow. I had to throw the snowsuits in the dryer a few times and then they were off and running again.
I have been working on getting my Dept. 56 villages put up which is no small task but I enjoy it. These are on the mantle in the living room.
These are over the kitchen cupboards.
Over the kitchen sink.
This year I put some garland over the door going out into the sun room.
This is a Nativity scene that I did years and years ago when I could still see well enough to do cross stitch!
The tree in the sun room.
The tree in the living room.
A few snowmen in the den and a mitten quilt that I did a number of years ago.
My Christmas cookie jars.
My glass Nativity is going to go where the two little snowmen are now.
That’s as far as I have gotten thus far and probably won’t do much more other then to put the gifts under the trees which add more color.
While reading my nieces blog Musings of a Housewife she gave a link to a wonderful post written by Renee Swope called Unwrapping His Christmas Presence. No that’s not a typo. Sometimes in all of our hustle and bustle we forget to focus on the real meaning of Christmas and Renee’s post will bring us right back to where we should be. Thank you Jo-Lynne for sharing it with us, I loved it. :o) Click on this and it will take you to a page that says Error but you can see the name of the post in the column and just click on that.
My grandson drew this picture yesterday and asked me if I would send it to Santa for him. Does that make you puddle up or what?
