Christmas Shopping

I am almost done with my Christmas Shopping. Just a few little things to get. I am a planner and I like to get my shopping done early. Going out this morning for my few little things.

I sure hope when he flies out to see Santa every night he is telling a good report.. :)

Christmas Apron

My daughter and I saw a Christmas apron in a store, they wanted $50.00 for it. Grant you it was cute but still  $50.  That is ts alot of cash..
I went home and yesterday tried to come up with something close.

The weather turned cooler. It feels more like Christmas Time.

Finished With Decorating Inside

I finally finished decorating inside. The  last tree is up and decorated.
This is my upside tree in my sewing room.  I have no room on the floor for a tree. SOOOOOOO

Some people like it  some don't   Some just say that isn't right at all.

We found Winston this morning in the Dinning Room

Today is the day we decorate outside....

Elf on the Shelf

Our little elf arrived today. His name is Winston. He is sitting in our living room tree, the one that rotates. Every time he comes around we call out his name and wave. At night he flies back to Santa to let him know if we have been  naughty or nice.

When he comes back in the middle of the night he finds a new place to rest. Each morning we have to find him.

Testing Christmas Lights

Why is it you put up a tree and some of the lights just won't work. That is Tim's job, checking the lights. Usually he is in a good mood, but if he can't get the lights working after 30 minutes or so the "Grinch" appears. LOL. Thank goodness he never stays around too long. Finally get all the lights working and fluff the tree. These are our 2 living room trees. Ready to decorate.

New Harley Village

Tim got a new harley piece to the village. In side is a 1956 Harley   How cool is that since his harley is a 1956.
But then it is from Dept. 56 too.
I rearranged the village to fit his pieces in.

I finished the bathroom too

This week I am hoping to get the living room tree up and decorated.  I still have to get all my candles out too.
