Finally got most of my decorating done this weekend but the tree is yet to be decorated. That will come. Just hope no one breaks in while I'm at Leola's tomorrow because someone could get seriously hurt falling over debris. Below is my mantle that I tried to keep pretty simple. I've used lots of fresh greenery & I love it.
I have so many vintage ornaments that I'm trying to invent ways to use them. Can't stand not to put all of them out. This will be interesting to see how long it takes Sage to lift this dome.
I'm determined to get things wrapped up because I want to sit and enjoy it before it's time to take it down. Also, would love to have some of the girls over.
We went with the kids to Silver Dollar City on Sat. afternoon to see the lights & what an experience. We had to park miles away & ride a bus in which was great going but when we left the line to get on the buses was at least 1 mile long. The kids (& adults) were exhausted and cold & it was 1 1/2 hrs. before we got to the car. Someone said there were over 30,000 people in the park on Sat. It was a shame that what could have been such a fun day had to end so badly. Anyway, it made us all think about what Christmas was all about. It certainly wasn't all the flashy lights & $10.00 hot dogs. It was that we got to spend the day with Allison, John, Sage, Stella & Phoebe, & they wanted us with them. We all rode back in a nice safe car & came home to nice warm homes after spending the day as a family & we felt truly blessed when we know there are so many who aren't that fortunate. PEACE & have a great week!
