It's beginning to look like Christmas!

The table looks better.
But as you can see, it's almost impossible
 to have it completely cleared of stuff!

The tree is still a work in progress.
It is way bigger than our fake one
so I have an empty looking tree.
BUT, we made a daughter very happy by having a real tree =)
(I forgot to fix the photos in Picasa before posting...color isn't very good)

This Manger Scene came from Avon.
I bought the pieces in the late 70's and in the 80's.
Last year the Angel broke.
The book you see in the background was from Marcy and Scott
 2 years ago.
Scott collected the photos of Paityn's first year and wrote
 fantastic captions and stories.
It is a treasure!

Oops, I didn't notice the red tree is falling off the tin!

The snowman came from Kmart several years ago.
It changes colors.....very festive!
I bought the little Nutcrackers this year at Michael's.
I used then at the Women's Brunch.
They are the perfect size for little ones to play with.

The glass figures aren't showing up too good.
I got them at a thrift store last year.

We have a very talented young artist at our church.
He did this for us in 2006.
I love it!

This is what it looks like outside today.
It is soooo cold and windy!
(I really do not like cold and windy!)

My little ones will soon arrive. It will be a good day. I hope you are experiencing a good day too!

My tree is a little bare this year too! I didn't put a tub full of ornaments on it! I just liked it plain and sparkly! The other ornaments are VERY colorful and I still may add them at some point! You are really having fun getting the decorating done... feels good, don't it?

Have a blessed day in your cold and windy place! It is cold here too, we set a record this morning for this day... 14 degrees, BRRRRRR! HUGS!
