Praying she gets better!

I woke up to all the Christmas lights on in the house. I just love when Wayne has the house lit up before I wake up! It's just so pretty and I'm not ready to take it down just yet.

My grandchildren will be here shortly so I am going to try to read a little more on here before I sign out for awhile.

Take care and think Merry Thoughts!!!

(Carefully, and lovingly packed away of course!)

But I think I will leave our door wreaths up a few more days. Keep a bit of the cheer going a bit longer.
Same here. I think the decorations will be coming off the trees little by little, then the trees will be packed away this weekend to "recharge" for next year.

For me, leaving the decorations up longer is a little sad. I usually take them down a little after New Year's to clear the way for the Christmas that's on the way. I have a little dollar-store tree figurine that I may leave out year round.

After having been here a few years, when I see anything pertaining to Christmas, I think of all of you. And that's a good thing!

It is expensive, but a couple of times a year they have a "Half-price Sale" they advertise on their email they send out. Half price doesn't make it cheap, but it does help! But I'm with you...it's expensive!
