Hi Everybody. Happy New Year to you all.
Hope your holiday was everything you expected (that is unless you were expecting squabbles and fights and hurt feelings. You know how families and Christmas can be :-).) Seriously, we had a wonderful Christmas. Like I said before, it was very low key with some of the family being away. We had a lot of fun with our annual brunch and gift opening. Everything centered around Camryn. She enjoyed opening gifts from Uncles and Aunties-and Grandma. Coen is too young to be much involved but just the same, it was wonderful to have a new little person here for Christmas. And next year, we will have another. My youngest son and his wife are expecting their first baby. I am so excited for them and me.
I don't have any cards to show you in this post. I just wanted to post some pics of the decorations I put up this year. It is the first time in quite a long time that I really went to town and brought out most of my stuff.
I put up two trees every year. One family tree that we put the prezzies under and one decorator tree in my foyer. This is the family tree. I usually make new decorations for it every year, but didn't this year. I decided to go retro instead. I went through my little Christmas room in the basement and found all the old ornaments that I had made in the early years. Can you say HOARDER?
This is my foyer tree. I change it up every year. Last year it was red and white. Next year, I have already decided that it will be red and gold.
I have one more nativity set up this year. Forgot to take a pic. It is a nice one with a music box that I bought at a garage sale for cheap. I set it up for the little kids. A few years ago, Camryn was looking at this nativity set up (below) and asked "Can I play with the Jesus house." I really did not want her to so I told her I would get one that she could play with. And so I did. I will remember to take a picture next year.
Happy Day to you all.
