I do wish this little house of ours was on a piece of land we owned instead of in a manufactured home community but for now, there is nothing to do about that. We'll see how things are in 5 years when our lot lease is up.
The weekend after Thanksgiving I pulled out all of our Christmas decorations. I had six totes worth and after I put out everything I wanted to keep the rest of it went to Shauna and a couple things to my DIL Marissa. I got rid of half of my decorations!
Last year after Christmas I threw away our 7 foot Christmas tree that we would put up in the family room, so all we have now is the small 5 foot tree I used to put in the front window of the Canton house. I had more ornaments that I could put on both trees so I put all of my favorites on the smaller tree and gave the rest to Shauna!
I never realized how freeing getting rid of stuff can be!
Anyway here are some pictures of the decorating I've done.
|This wreath made of bells has been a favorite of mine for a long time. I hung it on the pantry door.|
|Ceramic Christmas tree that my mom made along with some of the kids santa pictures.|
|My 5 foot tree that is being held together by the lights strung on it. It will be going in the garbage after this year!|
|So nice to have this built in. We strung lights and garland above...|
|And put my snowmen collection on it.|
|We put these shelves up to hold pictures but for now they hold my Christmas Tree collection.|
|We even decorated our little porch, which we plan on replacing with a deck in the Spring.|
We watched Maxwell and Levi on Saturday night so Shauna and Brad could go out. I had to sneak this picture of Maxwell because if he sees my phone he wants to play with it! He was having chicken and mashed potatoes for dinner, and keeping a couple flashlights close by!
Those too boys have me totally wrapped around their little fingers!
Until the next time.....
