I'm back to show a little more of the decorating I did this year for Christmas.
I knew if I didn't put it on here tonight I wouldn't be able to share it before
Christmas was over, and who wants to look at the decorating after
Christmas has come and gone?
Daughter number three and her family will be here tomorrow to celebrate the holiday
with us and then go back home to Boise so the children will be in their own
home for Christmas morning.
I will be baking and cooking tomorrow for a Christmas dinner here on Saturday.
Daughter number two and her family who lives in St. George, Utah will fly in
during the holiday break and my older son will come home then also and
I will be cooking another dinner for them : )
Daughter number four and her little girl live nearby and so she will get
two Christmas dinners along with Landon, Dale and I.
Yippee...we get to eat twice the pie!
When children grow up and get families of their own they like to be in
their own homes at Christmas making their own traditions.
Not to mention the in-laws who want to have them when their turn comes.
to see them move away from home. Through the years some have moved
many times in the course of schooling and jobs and so I feel blessed
just to get them home once in awhile.
decorated the house at all...
and by the time the nine month old is done with it when
his turn comes during the Christmas break,
too many pretty shiny things to just leave alone.
Here are a few more photos of what I did in the house this Christmas.
I finally got the tree decorated.
Why is it so hard to get a decent photo of a Christmas tree?
I tried to get a shot of the whole tree and didn't get one I liked so here are a few
close-ups of some of the ornaments used this year.
The tree won't last long with the wood heat and dry air,
but we will enjoy it while we can.
It smells so good!
It's a simple tree
with simple ornaments
a simple cranberry garland
