The girls are home, I have one day of work left (today), and it’s almost Christmas.  That means it’s time to take a blogging break and enjoy the season.  I’m going to share a few of our Christmas decorations and wish each of you and yours the most merry and blessed Christmas you’ve ever had.  Count your blessings, hold your loved ones close, and take time to enjoy the season.  Thanks for being part of the blessings of my blogging life!  I greatly appreciate all of you.

  1. your decorations are wonderful… and your tree is like a light in the darkness…well done!!! have a wonderful christmas and all the best for a good 2018

    • Thanks. The girls and my husband will decorate our big tree today, but this one comes from a time when our younger daughter was little (and very active.) We were afraid she might grab ornaments on a regular tree, so I did this one and we put in on the card table in the playpen, almost the only time the playpen was used. It became a yearly tradition.

    Beautiful decorations, Janet. I am so not ready. We just got our tree, put the lights on last night and I’ll decorate it today. That is the only decoration we will have. I just don’t have the energy or inclination to bring out all the village houses, etc. Maybe next year. I still have some presents to get. Glad we found each other this year. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family and a very Happy New Year. J2

    • Still waiting for the rest of my family to decorate the big tree, but everything else looks very festive. The forecast is saying we might even get a bit of snow on Sunday, which would be lovely!!!
