Decorating Outside

Tim worked outside decorating the house.
Day time
At Dusk Kitchen window

I love how the shadows of the deers appear on my neighbors home. Tim made these wooden deers for me

Dylan loves the animated deers. When he saw them at the store he asked Pappy if he would get them. Of course Pappy did. Dylan spent the night so he could help Pappy with the decorations.

I still have a few things to do inside. I seem to always run out of time. ALMOST DONE.

Living Room

I am almost done decorating the living room

When I leave a picture up on the wall I cover it with wrapping paper and make it into a present.

When I am finally done I go thru the house If I see cords sticking out that can't be hid I wrap an empty box as a gift/present and set it in front the the cord. I try my best to hide those ugly little cords. I even set fake presents under the tree.
I really do enjoy Christmas. All that is missing is "SNOW"

It Is Getting Chilly

We had the boys over night on Saturday. I just LOVE having them . They sure do keep me running but they can put a smile on my face. It is starting to get chilly here in the evenings. We were able to actually have a fire in the fireplace. Well one of those burning logs. It is still very strange for me being in the Houston area during Christmas time. My memories are trying to pick out a live tress in freezing weather, running to and from the car with the heater on. lol .There are many times here in Texas where Tim is putting our outside Christmas lights on the house in shorts. Just doesn't seem right. next week we will be having a heat wave again. When I get a chance to use the fireplace I do. On Christmas we have a real fire even if I have to have the doors open and even the air-conditioner running.
The boys in their blanket sleepers. I know they can only wear these a few times a year but I do love seeing them running thru the house. In the morning they were so cozy Harley didn't want to get dressed. LOL. Look how big they are getting.

My little helpers were here again yesterday. And Did I ever keep them busy.
This 4.5 foot tree is in their bedroom. This is my 8 ft. slim tree in my bedroom, fill with shades of gold balls and gold pine cones, and of course bows. I think this is my favorite tree,of course I love laying in bed looking at the lights. YES! I have 2 trees in my bedroom Can you tell I love Christmas! The tired little boys fell right to sleep for their nap. Dylan gets the biggest kick out of helping. He will stand back and say "Now that's a pretty tree." He says it for everyone.
I still have more decorating and more trees.

Today is my sister Carole and her husband Al anniversary. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY; I LOVE YOU BOTH

More Blocks

I took it easy yesterday. I went to the store with Timmi in the morning then I made a few more blocks. When Tim got home from work he brought down the rest of the Christmas decorations.
Now I have containers all over the house. That can't last long; it drive Tim nuts when things are a mess.

After I made this I knew I had to give it to Timmi; one of her best friends decorates in all white.
Now I will made another for me.
I am running out of white wire lights I will have to start using green wire. They just have some pretty ribbon out there. I bought more when I was with Timmi. It isn't like I need ribbon either.

Santa's Little Helpers

I had the boys yesterday and they were helping me decorated another tree. This 4 ft. tree is in my foyer. It is our "Steeler"tree. My family LOVES football.

It was hard to tell the boys they can't play with the trucks. I have 2 different trucks on each side of the tree.

All Finished
