Decor Done

Here is our Christmas tree:

Glad this pic turned out better than the last one!    Maybe because it was light, not night??   I think I mentioned this last week that PP put up the tree herself, and both of them decorated it.     And redecorate it every day!   lol

And some of the ornaments don’t always make it back onto the tree!

We even have matching girly Mrs. Santa hats.     I think it was on one girl’s head for a total of 10 whole minutes!

The girls and I have matching wreaths on our doors.

Today is the 8th, and I finally remembered to take down the Thanksgiving pumpkin!

And replaced it with this:

(Wow, 9 years ago already.      That’s when everybody, including my brother!, lived with us.  Mama had sold her house, so she could go to college, so we had her move in.    Then Bubba left his wife, coincidentally they lived next door, so it was only across the yard!  Then his son, my nephew moved into his room.     We had a full house!    Before that, DD1 had been in that room!    Years later, PopPop came to live in the family room, when he retired from the Navy.    Yes!      My first husband lived with DH and I!     We were friends by then, so it worked out great.     Family hotel at its fineness!! Kim never lived with us, but I couldn’t leave her out, since I had DD1 on there!)

If I had an ornament of the girls, I’d hang that there.    Wait- I do!     We spent hours last year, and the year before making, and decorating pix frames!     Where are any of those??    Well, I’ll have to go on a treasure hunt in a little, to dig one up.     Surely I kept at least one for myself??     I’ve seen it since I unpacked the Christmas tub, but of course can’t find it right now.      eye roll 

Yay!!   I looked under the laundry on the chair, for something else, and found their ornament!!

  Didn’t they do a good job making, and decorating it?!    I thought the tree shape was so cute!!    2017 the shape was squares.

I was planning to wrap the door, but the only door wrap I have is green.    I hate green!!      Whatever was I thinking??     So, no door wrap.   Well, you could always go buy a $1 purple tablecloth from Dollar Tree.    Just sayin.    But, then I’d have no excuse not to actually do it!

Then put that sap sucker in the donate box right this minute!      Yes, ma’am sir!     Done!

But whatever else, I can never forget that the season is only about this reason:

Jesus Christ was born a baby, to grow up and become the Savior of the world.

Isaiah 9:6-7 [Full Chapter]

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
Merry CHRISTmas to all.
