Where the Week Went ~Trimming the Trees ~~And More

Our Christmas boxes came down 
from the attic two weeks ago. 
It takes some time to put everything in place.

So many precious memories accompany those decorations.

Hubby hung the garland on the front of the garage yesterday.
I will get a photo of that after dark.

He also helped hang the Seasons Greetings 
sign over the stairway.

My Jingle Bell wreath sounds 
just like Santa’s Sleigh!

This year I moved the tree to a spot 
closer to the dining room, 
this way I can see it when 
I am working in the kitchen.

Why do I put in all this effort to 
decorate when it is just the two of us?
I just love the glow of the Christmas Tree lights, 
especially in the evening.

Maybe you all remember this centerpiece 
that you can assemble with items 
you already have in your home.

It also gives off a lovely glow 
when you light the little candles

I always look forward to setting up my little tree 
on my bathroom vanity. 
It provides the perfect nightlight 
when I get up in the night.

There are a few sweet treats in the 
Living Room Coffeetable Centerpiece.
I must add some dark chocolates, right?

I like the Christmas Tree Lights so much, 
that I set up a tree in the downstairs Family Room too.

Hanging over the fireplace mantel, 
is the stained glass window from our old farmhouse.

Christmas picture frames show off a photo 
of our grandson...

..And photos of our daughters.

This one was taken 16 years ago, 
when they were both still living at home.

This cute little tin was a gift from a student a few years ago.
It contained homemade gingerbread cookies.

My personalized snowmen ornaments...

...It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Take care,
