I Love Christmas!

 I have so much fun decorating my house for Christmas. I start looking forward to it months ahead.  I just wanted to post some of my decorations.

Here are our stockings, I started making them in 1982, when we had 4 children, we started with 6, we now have 24.  One is for my mom who usually spends Christmas with us.  They are made in the same 80's style I started with, but I try to keep the fabric and trim up to date.   Everyone gets a stocking even though they don't live here.  I hang them on the upstairs railing because thats the only place I could think of where there is enough room, but it works.

This is my tree, it is about 10 or 11 ft. tall, It's huge!  It is so full that I have to bend the branches in the back up so that it can be pushed farther toward the wall or we would have very little room to walk by it.  Dwight built a platform for it because the branches hung down so low we couldn't put presents under it.  I got it at a garage sale a few years ago for $80, one of my best garage sale finds.  

This is the little scene on top of my entertainment center, my daughter in law, Kim made the Santa for me a few years ago and I have collected the other things here and there.

Welcome Baby Londyn!

Font size

Londyn Michele Winters was born on Dec. 9 to Jenna and Devon.
I was honored to be present at her birth, it was a thrilling experience for me. Everything went very well and little Londyn is beautiful. I am enjoying watching Jenna be a mom, she is doing a great job.
