Hello everyone, we have had 3 busy weekends in a row and this weekend is also going to be busy
Life just gets busy this time of year, doesn’t it?
I’ve had ideas for blog posts but just haven’t had the opportunity to actually do the posts.
We did put out ours Christmas decorations this week so I’ll show them.
We have 2 Nativity sets, this one with tall ceramic figures made by a dear friend years ago.
This plastic set was bought our first married Christmas at Kmart in Oceanside California. The pieces are very durable as all our children played with it and it doesn’t look too worse for wear. Son Bobby made the stand for the angel when he was about 10. He cut and bent a clothes hanger to make it and I’ve used it ever since then.
My brother makes us a fresh evergreen wreath every year and he delivered it yesterday.
We rearranged the living room and I am so happy with how much roomier it seems.
The white tree is new this year, purchased at Hobby Lobby.
You know how women usually prefer clear white tree lights and men usually like colored lights?
This tree has a big selling point——-
The lights are programable and can be clear or multicolor, they can be continuous or they can blink in several patterns.
My mother in law’s thing has always been Christmas ornament collecting, she’s done it so long and has several thousand. Now, she is starting to downsize a little. She asked which ones we wanted and I chose the Campbell soup balls as my grandparents were Campbells.
These balls are fragile and we decided to use them on this silver tree as a centerpiece. This tree is very sturdy so I’m not worrying about them. The limbs must be heavy wire under the tinsel and don’t sag at all when things are hung on them. We bought the silver tree at Pier 1, maybe 10 years ago.
The Campbell Soup Kids are different on every ball but they all seem happy, kind and of course cute.
That’s the extent of our decorating this month.
And if you don’t see any posts from me for awhile, maybe even until Christmas, it’s only because life is busy right now. I’ll be back blogging when extra activities slow down.
Merry Christmas everyone, even if today is just December 1.
