I've been in a blogging slump for several months. I haven't had much to share about my seasonal decor. I didn't get out the pilgrims & Indians until I set the table for our Friday Thanksgiving dinner until the day before. See what I mean?
That being said, I'm ready to share my Christmas bling as I slowly decorate.
This year we have a new Christmas tree. It has a remote control with 7 different functions. We love it!
Friday evening my daughter-in-law, Kari, helped me decorate the tree with the help of my 3 year old granddaughter, Emma. The guys weren't interested in tree trimming, so it was girl power to the rescue. LOL
Here she is being silly while wearing my reading glasses.
Emma really was a delight while we were trimming the tree. I think she put more ornaments on the tree than I did. She kept saying things like, "I love this!", "Oh, how beautiful!" & "I like decorating". I think she is my 'mini me' for Christmas decorating. I kept pulling out more & more ornaments, some that I hadn't used in years.
I have many teacher ornaments I haven't used in years. Emma wanted to use them all, so we did.
I shared some history of some special ornaments like these from school Christmas parties in 2nd & 3rd grade.
I had so much fun watching Emma decorate the tree. She really did a good job. It was a memory making moment I'll never forget.
Ethan did agree to pose in front of the tree wearing his new Christmas pajamas.
Sunday started out warm & windy, we knew a cold front was coming our way in late afternoon. After lunch hubby & I decided to rake leaves, clean most of the windows, and put up Christmas lights. We were trying to finish before it got cold. About 3:00 the wind changed directions & the temperature started to drop from 72 to 42. We had to put on heavy coats. It was so windy!!! We finished all the lights as it was getting dark. We were freezing. Still have to put up wreaths & garland.
More Christmas bling coming this week, hopefully!
