This year decorating was surprisingly easy. The way I put things away last year made a HUGE difference.
This is our main tree in the family room. Ashley (mostly) and Mason decorated it. I helped with the ribbon, star and ornaments at the top. It's no Martha Stewart but I love looking at it!
It turns out that I asked Greg to bring in the wrong box. I kept thinking this sure is a little tree. I wasn't planning on it, but I now have a tree in my bedroom.
And this is MY tree, that is in the living room. It's my snowman tree. I just love it! Tall and slender- apparently like I like my men. (Yes, I'm talking about my husband!) LOL!
I brought out my nativity this year. I absolutely love this one! I was afraid that it would get broken in years past, but I think it will be ok this year.
And did you know I collect snowmen? Well at least I used to. I no longer buy them, but I still receive them as gifts which I am quite happy with! They make me smile!
Hmmmm...what to do? I did have all my Santas on this table, but there wasn't enough to fill the table and I still had snowmen left over, so I combined them. I hope it is cute and not tacky looking! Ashley and Mason have called dibs on several of them when it's time for me to get rid of them.
The kittys have been less than helpful! When I first put the trees up they all climbed up into them. I wish I had taken pictures, but I thought I would have another chance to do so. After I decorated them, they don't climb up in them. I'm tickled!
BUT...someone does pull the ribbon and the beads off all the trees. Who could it be? #1 innocent looking Lucky #2 Sly looking Izzy or #3 Guilty looking Kiki?
My bets are on #2! (mostly) but #1 as well.
I've got to teach class tomorrow, so I better go to bed. But I'll leave you with this impressive art piece that Ashley created today. I think she did a pretty amazing job! OH..and I'm also REALLY super proud of her today. She told me today that she really felt like she should help the Wares (our older neighbors). So she went over to their house and asked them if they needed help doing anything. She helped them put Christmas lights up in their yard. That's my girl!
