My sister, Sally, asked me to post pictures of my holiday decorations. Instead I'm including a small picture essay of things we've done this holiday season. I have not been the best photo taker but hope to improve this in the new year. Me and the girls have had some really fun times.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Bar cookies. Our fav! We use mini candy bars b/c they pack better than Hershey's kisses. Yes and I said "pack" but truly, they don't last long enough to pack.
I love poinsettias. Every year on Black Friday, Lowe's sells them for $1/each. I bought 15, gave away some as gifts and used about 10 to decorate the house, including each of our bedrooms. Yikes, I think both photos are of Indigo as a baby. Poor Ais. Gotta swap that out pronto.
I love the Christmas Village. I also have a wooden Nativity set complete with animal figurines, a manger and hay. My children love it and I think it's a very practical way to make the Christmas story real. As a kid I loved setting up our Nativity set. It was that odd paper mache stuff from the 60s with glitter. It lasted, somehow. I recently inherited a ceramic lighted Christmas village set from someone who was throwing it all out in it's protective original packaging! Thanks Chris. It's given us some charming holiday light.
