A Little Christmas Decorating.

Here are my Christmas Decorations - lots from my mom, and the ones
 I have gathered over the years.  I am a Snowman, Cardinal, Gingerbread person -
and I am a Dollar Store, Christmas Tree Shop Shopper....


This is my front porch- it's a quick look, where you can really
see the train and the white tree, my moms,
and the Dollar store snowmen and gingerbreads. 
The lights are a little wacked of course - but they work for me. 


This is a close up of the 2012 tree in Clinton Square,
my daughter-in-law, takes her kids every year to this event.
 This is a picture she took on Friday. 


This is my grandkids (2nd son) at the Christmas Tree Lighting
- as you can see, they close the streets off in downtown for the people.
 A lot of the shops are open late. 
This picture shows Malik, who missed Christmas Craft Day. 
I decorated the blog too -- the picture is also another one of my front porch - I am so not Better Homes and Garden, or Country Living but  I am specially blessed to be comfortable in the way I celebrate this season.

  4. Christmas decorations tell a family's story.

    I have an angel that my MIL bought the first year we were married. It is now looking a bit sorry but it has to go up every year. I have one set of ornaments for the tree that when I unwrap them to hang I can still see my son's face beaming as I held him up to reach branches to hang them on nearly thirty years ago.

  6. I'm not one for Christmas decorating. I just find that the pace of life is so fast for Sept-Dec for me that by the time the holidays roll around I'm about ready to crawl into my bed and stay there during the break!

    Lovely decorations!
