I hope everyone is ready for Christmas! Any last minute shoppers out there!
I think I'm done shopping but haven't even started wrapping yet. But first I thought I would share a little more of my Christmas decorations this year.
I don't have a lot of Santa's but my good friend Patsy was selling these at our church rummage sale and this one just had to come home with me!
He is watching over my 'Night Before Christmas in Paris' book!
We don't do Elf on a Shelf but I found this one at a thrift shop and he is happy to live with me and watch over the bills instead of naughty or nice children!
Here is the kitchen tree hung with all sorts of cookies and baking goodies!
Do you see the fortune cookie?
I do love my Maileg pixies!
This year my Mom and I are giving each other Ancestry DNA kits. It will be fun to see what they show. I've been feeling my roots lately.
So Norwegian Helga has been reading to the brother & sister mice a nice French Christmas book!(it will be fun to see how much Norwegian and French blood I do have)
Christmas pillows on the couch!
The Christmas tree is hard to photograph but it's been so much fun this year. Vintage, new, handmade, bought, memory and souvenir ornaments adorn it!
I'm so blessed that my wonderful friend Donna@ Distressed Donna Down Home dyes the most amazing little trees each year. This year some of them came out Flamingo Pink and she gifted me some in various sizes! I just love them!!
Annie is enjoying all the ornaments but is careful with them.
But one of my favorite decorations is
Scout in her pink Santa hat with a big bow!! She is so excited this year about Christmas!
December 23rd is a special day.
11 years ago my daughter married the love of her life Blake!
I love them both so much!
Two years ago on Dec 23rd my brother reached the end of his life.
I miss him and my Dad so much!
I'll be spending Christmas morning with Sara, Blake, Tiger and Scout! Mom will join us for dinner along with Ashleigh! She is flying in very late Christmas Eve and I can't wait to hug my girl. Sara and Ashleigh's Dad will also be joining us Christmas night as he travels from Minn. with stories of snow for the Grands! It promises to be a loud love filled day!
Merry Christmas and as always...
I wish you JOY!
