Christmas Eve

The festivities on Christmas Eve...

Gingerbread cookies are a tradition every year. 
We make people & dogs of course.

Judy sports her Santa hat.

This year's tree was bigger than usual but that means more
decorations can be put on!

The nutcrackers.

Look at the whimsical characters that greet you at the front door!
An elf & three mice, don't they make you smile?

Everyone gets into the spirit with Santa hats.

Table centrepiece this year made out of vintage ceiling tiles
that I bought at the Craft show.    : )

Winter Wonderland

It has been snowing all day. White Christmas here we come.

It may be cold outside but it's cozy inside.  : )

I better get out there & start shovelling!  : )


Christmas Decor 2014

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Especially since it has been
snowing all day today. We have about a good 6" so far & no
signs of letting up! Here are some shots of the decor
for this year. I only took pictures of things that were
different from last year because I am pretty traditional & things
look very similar year to year.

The tree.

New ornaments because you can never have too many!

Lavender tree smells so good!

Birch star behind the 3 wise men.

Brich trees.

Everybody gets into the Christmas spirit with egg cup hats!

Wonderful characters from Valerie Weberpal!

OK. So some of the things are the same but I love them & they make me smile.  : )
