It's Christmas Here!

I decorated for Christmas. This is one of my favorite times of the year. I like having all the lights up. I like the feel in the air. I just love Christmas. And in our house, we are all ready to go. 'Tis the season!

We put up outside lights this year. Of course it was only over the garage, but we didn't have a ladder tall enough to get up to the roof. But it's a step up from last year. Maybe by next year we will have a ladder and we will be in business!
It's a bit of a fuzzy picture - sorry. I want to make a wreath for front door but for now I stick with what I already have. Inside of spending money on materials to make a wreath this year, I'm using it on presents. 
Can't even tell it's rusted, can you?
  

Never mind the pink over the fireplace. There is a lot of cold air coming in through the fireplace, so we are trying to keep some of the coldness out. It's chilly enough in the family room. 




Every year we take a picture in front of the Christmas tree. Rob and I have been doing this since we spent our first Christmas married. We even include Stella in the picture. Then I make a print every year, we it ends up part of our decoration. I like it. It's a cool look back. Our little girl was so small last year. Well, why have me just describe the pictures? You know you want to see them anyway....


I love my family. I love this time of the year. Life is pretty dang good.
