We had a nice surprise this year. Snow! In our area it is a rare treat. My boys enjoyed it to the max!
Slowly but surely I've put out my Christmas decorations. I've had to move my tree from its regular position from the middle of the room because we moved some furniture around for a better flow. We have a large dining/living room combination we call "The Great Room". For many years we had an echo in this room because it was quite bare. Our family rule is that we only buy things we absolutely love and only if we have saved up for it. Now it feels full and cozy and even more so at Christmas with the lights and decorations.
Here are some pictures of our decorations this year.
I've added a new tree in my kitchen. It has a baked goods/coffee/sweets theme. I call it "Kitchen Goodies". I bought the tree on sale at Hobby Lobby and purchased a few ornaments every time I was in the store and they were on sale. It's a little bare, but in a few years, it will be nice and full. We added colored lights to make it look fuller than it really is. I prefer white lights, but the boys asked me to get colored lights for this tree as a change. I'm glad I did. It looks adorable.
