We got the house as decorated as it is going to get. I decorated my tree the same as last year, with all handmade ornaments. Many are beaded ornaments that I made early in our marriage and many from ornament exchanges with crafty friends.
This will always be my favorite. It is beaded with a little Nativity scene in it.
This is my Nativity. Nothing expensive or collectible, but a gift from my sister one year as I had always wanted a Nativity of my own.
The "Baileys" live in the house on the corner.
One year, or was it two, my sister and I were into Christmas villages. I haven't put it out in a long time. Where I used to put it is full of papers, books etc., so I put it on top of our entertainment center. I did it for my Mom. I have over ten houses, an ice rink, bridge, light posts, etc., but it is a lot of bother. She will appreciate this much though. Her eye sight is going bad now, so I have to do what I can.
I haven't taken a picture of my porch yet as we have sub zero temperatures with the wind chill. That is not my ideal picture taking weather!
