More Christmas Cheer and pics!

While I was at it, I thought I would share my decoration on the onside of my house. Yes, we are BIG Christmas Fans and I love all of my decorations. Some are store bought, and some are made by me and my children. Most of my Christmas Tree is decorated with handmade ornaments. Some are over 20 years old! I have a snowflake them for my dining room and people seem to enjoy the thought of having some snow hanging above their heads while visting and enjoying good food and good company!

I hope you enjoy my pics. PLease leave me a comment - I'd love to read what you all think about my old decoartions! LOL

Yep, you're seeing right...9 stockings! Hubby's is the Santa hat!
My Rudolph archway...I'm a big kid at Christmas time!

As of my Christmas House!!

Here are the pics of my house this year. I hope they are viewable! I never realized how hard it is to get Christmas lights to show up on a camera! Enjoy everyone and Happy Holidays!

Wow, where has the time gone?

Why is it that when you are waiting for something, time seems to crawl - BUT if you don't want a certain time to get here it slams right into ya and is here before ya know it???

I watched my son erase our little "Christmas is _ days away board" andhe put an 8 on there this morning! Eight days!! I am not done shopping, crafting, and I still need to bake! Holy Moley - this year has flew by and right now I am feeling the dreaded Christmas stress. Yep, you all know - the "did I buy enough gifts", or "what if someone unexpected stops by?", or " Did I miss anyone when sending out the Christmas cards", and lastly "Where did all my money go??". Ughhh

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Christmas! I don't like that it's become so commercial, but we all fall victim to it each year. It's in our nature to want to give and sometimes we go broke doing it! I'm guilty of it, but I have slimmed the gifts down this year. So - good for me!

I did manage to get some pics of my decorated house and I will post them for everyone to see in a day or two. My hubby loves to decorate the Candy Cane Lane because of our house! That, to me, is why we do this! If it makes people happy and in the spirit of the season, then we are very happy!

I've been crafting my little heart out too. I really can't show you what I'm making right now, but I'll post pics after Christmas. "Spying eyes" may be checking out my blog and see the

Anywho, enjoy the holidays and hopefully I will have enough time to post again soon!

Merry Christmas and Happy Crafting everyone!

New pics and craftiness...

Thought I'd stop in for another dose of new pics and some craftiness! I've been really busy the past few weeks, but I had to post some pics of the Festival of Lights that we took the little ones to last Sunday evening.

I also have some more crafty pics of my I'm still working on some baby things for the holidays. One box will be shipped out and the other stays here for the CraftyBay Farmgirl's project.

I hope you all enjoy the pics and let me know what you think. I love feedback.

I'll post more thoughts and goofy stuff when I have more time. I have to go to work soon! Ughhh.

Take care and Happy Crafting!
