Today the kids were gone at Grandmere’s, we had Christmas parties two nights in a row so they stayed the night and will be home tonight. Tom and I spent the day working, him on house stuff (THANK GOODNESS for a dry weekend, now if the rain could hold off for another couple of days and we can get our roof on and windows in!), and I was designing Christmas cards, albums, and catching up on stuff. I decided I better get the lights on our “tree” or the kids might freak out that it STILL wasn’t done. SO I did that as well…most of our ornaments are in storage and I know they want to put them all on, but I just couldn’t resist putting the two family ornaments we have out on. I love these ornaments, every year we have them made with the family picture from our Christmas card, so I have the one from last year, and then this one that I kept out of storage. THIS one is my VERY favorite Christmas Card Picture ever! I just love the colors we had AND that cement wall, which sadly now has parking RIGHT up to it, so no more photoshoots there:(
After the tree I attempted to put lights out around the outside of our house, BUT after 5 strands that were half out, I gave up finding on that worked! I guess that project will take a little more time. It feels good to walk into the living room and see our simple tree, I love it! Now which box did I put our stockings in? A project for another day I guess.
