Looking a little bit like Christmas

Today my son pulled down the bins and boxes from the storage above the garage. I don't go up there because a ladder is needed.....and I don't do ladders! 

The tree is new this year. Christy found it after Christmas last year when we didn't think there were any nice ones left. It's bigger than the old one so it's in the living room this year. 

Boxes everywhere :)

Aidan and Zoe were happy to help. 

The finished tree! It's so much prettier than my phone camera is able to show. 

I worked at putting out decorations all afternoon and into the evening. It takes me awhile to decide where it all needs to be.....I'm not finished and I'll probably be moving things around for the next week :)

A few pictures from this week....
There are still roses blooming on my miniature rose bush. 

Love it! It's so crazy because they had dropped all the leaves and now they're blooming!

This pumpkin has been breakfast, lunch and dinner for some critter. It was thrown into the woods today....that critter will surely find it plus a few more to feast on!

Isn't this so pretty? This lovely room is one of the lounges where Ellen works. I enjoy sitting there as I wait for her to finish. 

Merry Christmas from Noah and me :)
This busy boy decided to take a brief moment to chill the other day....very brief!! He also loves to take selfies and hams it up for the camera :) Love this precious boy!

It's beginning to look like Christmas! Yay!!

It sure is looking like Christmas there and the tree is so pretty. Love seeing the kiddos decorating. Happy Sunday!

I still have roses too. And geraniums. Isn't that wild? Everything is dead or dying and our plants keep blooming away.

Your tree is beautiful. We don't have ours up yet. I still have to clean up the space. I'm working on it.

Your tree is beautiful! I also had trouble capturing the REAL beauty of my tree last night! The phone camera just doesn't do it justice! Those little ones helping decorate the tree are just precious! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

That is a very pretty tree. I can't seem to get a good pic of my little tree but it brings me a lot of joy!

My place is a mess waiting for me to finish decorating. Your tree looks lovely. Dick is having trouble with the lights on ours, so we haven't even put anything on it yet till he figures that out. Yours looks lovely. And I like that lounge that you get to enjoy as you wait for Ellen.

It's so fun to put up a tree with kids around - their joy is contagious! It looks beautiful!
