I know I have been scarce this week. A scare with my step dad in the hospital had me spending time with mom and prepping for the big day tomorrow.
And also getting our house insulated…but more on that another day-all I can say now is thank goodness for the warmth and I never thought 66 would be considered warm, but hello…no drafts=warmth!
I will admit that a couple of times this week I had to take a deep breath and just tell myself to relax and to enjoy.
Like for instance, when the tree sat in the garage for over a week. Or the painting of the living room took longer than I thought so when I hosted the annual Christmas luncheon for my one group of friends there really weren’t any Christmas decorations out.
But The Chicken and I brought the tree in. I strung my new (and OMG BRIGHT) LED lights that I got two years ago after Christmas on the tree and then let the girls decorate it.
I have always liked the angel on top of the tree. It was Jeremy’s grandma’s and has special meaning to us as she LOVED Christmas, but with my new red walls and the addition of a blue LED light violating her (but in a totally good way). It just gives me so much peace.
Here are some of the ornaments that adorn the tree. Most of them are the girls’ ornaments as each year I get them a new one so that when they finally leave the nest and have a tree of their own they will have lots of ornaments to adorn it with.
(Can you tell we love Snowmen?)
Thank you so much for making these past two years wonderful for me. You all are so dear to me and give me such peace. You really have made me see that there are really great people out there.
May you & yours have a blessed day rejoicing in Love, Peace, and Life.
Merry Christmas & A very Happy New Year!
