This week I have been refinishing a bookshelf, decorating for Christmas and working on a quilt. Busy busy. We got our Christmas tree on Sunday. I LOVE real Christmas trees. They smell so wonderful and look so pretty. I have allergies but I'm willing to sacrifice myself for a few weeks to enjoy a real tree :) The house is now almost completely decorated and I love it. I love the twinkling lights, Nativity Set, Santa's and Snowmen, and stockings. This year I'm putting up a Christmas village that was my Mom's. I have to wait until the bookshelf I'm refinishing is done first so I have somewhere to put it. Hopefully I can get that done tomorrow and then I will be pretty much done. I have handled decorating without too much sadness. I had a few moments while hanging stockings and putting ornaments on the tree but I am enjoying the true meaning of Christmas this year and am celebrating that.
|The outside of our house. No lights on the top this year. Saving money for the ones I really want for next year. This is the first year you can see the columns because we are re-landscaping. Those 2 trees are kids tress in the kid rooms.|
|Front Door Wreath I made this year :)|
|Grant's ornament on the tree. Love how he is represented there.|
|Grant's other ornament|
|Our Family Ornament from last year. I miss those 2 kiddos.|
|Stockings on the mantel with Grant's urn in the middle. The 2 stockings on the ends are for our dogs.|
|My Willow Tree Nativity Set. I love this set and plan on getting a few more of the pieces in the future.|
