I will answer your questions but you have to answer them too!
Have you put up your tree yet?
Yes, of course! My decorations go up the week after Halloween. I do it that way because I want to enjoy the decorations as long as possible. Also, I am usually pressed for time all through November and the first week of December.
some decorations in the house?
Oh yes. The girls make a "ginger bread christmas village" with little houses in the town and a ginger bread tree in the middle. Then Daddy goes in and makes the little LED lights peek out of the "cotton" "ground" and set up the little train to go around the tree. It is too cute. The tops of all the cabinets and book shelves have lighted garland. All of the windows have draped lights and garland. All the bedrooms and ... Humm. I think I will just take pictures and give you link to the album (you can access it even if you do not use Facebook)
Yes! My daughters are a big help. They pic the colors for the bushes and trees. Ill take pictures of that too.
Are you ready?
You bet I am. Jewelry was made during the summer. The "project gifts (girls)" were all done over Fall. Family Christmas photos taken care of. All the candy is made.
are you stressing?
Nope. I am all done. Now I get to enjoy myself for the rest of the month. Are you travelling to visit family? Or are you staying home?
No and yes. Normally each year I have guests for about a month and half through Christmas. Since I started becoming very sick and progressing fast... David and the girls want "Christmas be just for us". So, we visited the relatives over the summer. This winter will be no guests.
What are your plans?
Chorus performances. School Christmas parties. Delivering candy baskets and bags.
How many are coming for dinner?
Just us this year. The girls want a Ham of course and corn bread stuffing.
Will it be just your immediate family?
Do you always have a turkey feast or other?
The girls decide our "Holiday Dinners".
What are some of your traditions?
Making Christmas sugar cookies for Santa. opening a gift on Christmas eve. That was when I got my engagement ring all those years ago, now it is tradition to search inside the Christmas tree for our hidden "small Christmas eve gift". Hot chocolate & popcorn with a new movie. Daddy reads "You are my miracle" and tells the girls before he reads that the "secret about Santa is in the book".
Tell me all about your Christmas day!
Only if you tell me about yours!
