6 days

Oh My Word!! We're down to 6 more days. 
Isn't it wonderful when real life takes hold and there no time to put together a post.

We actually put our Christmas Tree up last Friday but we've already started making our Christmas rounds, so..this is the first chance I've had to sit down and share my pictures and a few words.

I would also like to add, I was quite amazed when I downloaded my picture and it was twinkling.
I bet I just got a many a' eyeroll...
I didn't know it would do that...

Only two stocking hung this year..
that made me a little sad.

We don't have a mantel so this has always been the designated stocking spot.
Most years the stocking are from the floor to the ceiling.
So goes when everyone grows up...

We went for a tree that would be a little better sized for the room.
We have been notorious for choosing a tree extremely to large for the room. 

I had the lights on for them and they were totally ready to get the decorating on.
First, the balls then the special ornaments.
I had to giggle; if you saw one red ornament, you saw another, same with the green and so on.

Some of the special ones

The cross was made for me some time back. 
We had used it up until a few years ago, when we had a antiqued star that we used
but we've went back to our cross the past couple of years.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings to get some snow for Christmas.
It seems a little funny the way that sun is shining in on them 
but it really was quite a cold day.
 I always enjoy finding a special place for my little ornament to hang.
A friend from work made it for me.
Things like that tend to make me sentimental.

However you like to decorate do it to satisfy yourself and you family.
By all means,
Be Blessed!


  1. I was wondering how in the world you had the tree blinking! Then you mentioned it later in the post. I've never seen that happen. But I am a photograph novice.

    1. Ha ha..Not just me..I had thought to try and take some better pics at night or something. The windows really throw off the picture but after the twinkle I let it roll.

  2. Thanks for sharing these great pictures with us. I really like snowmen, and yours are very cute!

    1. Thank you Brenda. Wishing you and yours a Wonderful Christmas!

  3. Beautiful tree. I hope you have a Merry Christmas.

    1. Thank you..It's not elaborate it's just ours. I hope you have fun through the holiday even if it means getting a laugh at how ridiculous everyone acts.

  4. A great post! Now it's closer to Christmas. Happy Holidays to you!
