Well, I finally got the house “done up” for Christmas after Mr. Wonderful put the lights on the tree last night. I’ve done the lights plenty of times before, but you sure don’t want to be here when I’m doing it. We’re all better off leaving the nasty work to the mister!
But as we know, this is an all day deal, because there’s the kitchen…
and of course the mantel…
And the four stockings. My stocking on the far left was knitted by my dear Aunt Donna, years ago! I noticed that there are some new moth holes since last unpacked.
I don’t change the look of my tree, year after year, as some people manage to do. Our tree is a collection of ornaments collected over a lifetime, which for me, makes it special!
My favorites are the ornaments, made by our kids, when they were young, complete with photo! I also love the ornaments given to me by friends and family and while traveling. Wonderful memories!
Our decorations in the living room are much more low-key. I’m not like some “wonder women” I know, who will remain nameless, who manage to put up two or more trees in their home!
I put Santa in charge in the entryway, making sure we have presents for everyone! Yikes!
Well, there you have it! (Yes, that’s a flag in the dining room, that needs to be hung outside.) Welcome to our version of Christmas 2011. Now, we can sit back and enjoy the
Monday night football moment! Merry Christmas to all and thank you for stopping by!
