The house is now decorated for Christmas. I removed a number of everyday items to display the Christmas items. A trip to Marshall's yesterday with daughter number three was more fruitful than I anticipated it would be. I found the most lovely Advent countdown in the form of a four foot tall angel made from muted material. Looking at her brought a smile to my face and joy in my heart. There in lies the secret - joy to the heart.
|I bet you can guess what I named this gorgeous lady. Yup,|
Angie. An honor, once again, bestows on my grandmother.
The poinsettias got relocated to the kitchen table once I put the Christmas cloth on it. It's a good possibility they will get moved a few more times.
My daughter bought me a present yesterday and called to come over to deliver it. It's Frosty's hat as a wax burner. He's tucked into the corner of the kitchen counter just in front of the mixer. The scent waifs through the entire first floor. Yum!
While her family was here the children trimmed the tree with help from mom.
|I wish her dress was visible from the front. She looks |
like Cindy Who from the Grinch Stole Christmas cartoon.
|When the three year old saw thus ornament, she got all|
excited. She loves owls. Like most of my ornaments he was
purchased after Christmas at a drastically reduced cost.
