We Need A Little Christmas!
Right this very minute! I love that peppy song when I am decorating.
This cookie jar above is one of my most favorite Christmas decorations, no cookies in it though.
I have not sewn a stitch this week. Last weekend I got the house decorated and my shopping done. I had 2 Christmas concerts with the grandchildren, that will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit! Their happy, shining faces singing out so enthusiastically is so much fun to watch.
I feel like I can now relax and enjoy the season and all the festivities. My friend Judie said she decided to get all her shopping done by the 10th, so I followed her lead and it was a great idea!
A big change for us this year, we went with a small, live table top tree that we will plant outside in the spring. I love it!
One of the things I love to put out is all the pictures of the kids/grandkids with Santa Claus. If you look in the center back, my then 21 year old son finally sat on Santa's lap. He screamed bloody murder as a child so we gave up. I told him I was so sad I didn't have one of him, wish granted!
Jan and Cynthia at the Quilt Block gave me this as a gift, isn't it pretty?
Tomorrow I will be having a giveaway that has nothing to do with Christmas. So come back and see what I am up to.....
