#332 - Decorating for CHRISTmas

The girls and I had a late start getting our decorations up for Christmas, but we worked hard on Tuesday and finished pretty quickly. Of course it's much easier on me nowadays.....


They put almost the entire tree together! We considered getting a real tree this year, but after checking prices we decided to just use our ol' faithful! This tree ^ is the one I got the CHRISTmas I was expecting Holly. So this is the 10th year we've used it!

Of course Holly's nutcracker collection keeps growing!

We decided to decorate it a little different this year. For years past we've used a pearl garland with pearl and green balls, but this year we used a neat red checked fabric and some grapevine for the garland. We also mostly used more primitive/country looking ornaments. I love how it turned out! I also used some of the leftover fabric for the tree skirt.
Brian's sister gave me the church in this set a couple of weeks ago and his mom had given us the other buildings several years ago.
And upclose view of the fabric/grapevine garland and some of the ornaments!

They had the idea for this picture! Love it!

Proverbs 3:3-4
"Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man."
