Christmas Decorating

Thanks for all of your comments on my mother-in-law. The funeral went pretty well except for a little problem with the flowers that I ordered to be placed on the casket. To make a long story short they arrived to the funeral home late and they weren't even the right ones! Last time I ever order flowers online!

I almost have my Christmas decorating finished. I usually have it all done within a day or two after Thanksgiving. I'm a little slow this year.

We decided to put the Christmas tree in front of the door wall this year. It saved us from having to jack a bunch of furniture around and I think it looks rather nice there.





These wreaths were made by my kids in when they were in elementary school. Chris's on the left and Shauna's on the right. I hang them every year on the french doors leading into the family room.




We're having Rich's sisters and their husbands over for dinner next Saturday and then probably Shauna's boyfriends parents the following week. That is all of the holiday entertaining I will be doing this year. It's nice to have a little break because I usually have either a huge family Thanksgiving or Christmas every year.


I leave you with a picture of my great-nephew Dominic at Thanksgiving. He's so cute I could just eat him up!
