Getting Ready...

We are getting ready for Christmas around here.  We are excited about having lots of family come and enjoy the holidays with us.  We will have 13 people coming to spend the holidays with us over the next several weeks.  That number might grow and I say, the more the merrier!
Here is a shot of the 9 foot tree we put up in the front of the house.  It turned out beautiful with all white, silver and crystal ornaments.  Granny put a lot of her favorite glass ornaments on this tree.  We have enjoyed it so much already.  We also put up our fun family tree in the den with colored lights and all the boys ornaments they have collected over the years.  I'll do another post about that later.

I've gotten nearly all of the Christmas shopping done!  I only need to order a few more things online.  It is such a relief.  My hope is to just ENJOY our time together in the evenings wrapping presents, baking goodies and just being together now that the shopping is done.

With these two together we might have a wild holiday celebration!
Stay tuned ;-)

Wow! You go girl! Your tree looks fabulous! It sounds like you are ready for Christmas. We have decorated and our trunks our full of gifts (and most are wrapped). I just need to buy a few more things. We also need to make our Christmas Chex Mix!
