I hope you all had a wonderfully full Thanksgiving. Both in family and food. I like to decorate for Christmas just as soon as Thanksgiving recovery is complete :) We went and bought our Christmas tree on Friday and came home to decorate the rest of the house.
This is the Living Room: Before
Here are Sugar Mama and the Nugget decorating their trees.
Here is our mantle. This is the first year I have ever had an actual mantle to hang my stockings and the hubs doesn't necessarily like it because he says I'm going to catch the stockings on fire :)
This is our tree... looking at it from here, it appears it's leaning. Or is that just me?
My nanny, some years ago, started giving me pieces to create a Christmas village. I've gotten several more since then and here it is this year. It fills the bakers rack, and it gets harder and harder to find a single place to put it :)
I hope you all have as much fun decorating for Christmas as we do. If you would like to share, I would love to see your decorations.
Today I am Thankful for:
The CHRIST in Christmas. I hope that we all remember to stop and think about the true reason for the season. The king left his throne to share a manger in a town with no place for a king. He came as a babe to grow and take the sins of the world, gave his heaven to us when we had done nothing to deserve it. That is an amazing gift.
