Tis' the season...

After a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, and SO much to be thankful for, we are all ready to head "full speed" into Christmas preparations!! These little Christmas decorations (pictured above) are well-known and used in the scrapbooking world, but this is my first attempt at making them. It was so fun to do and I'm happy with the how festive they turned out! I have several other Christmas gifts in various stages of completion, so now I have to get busy and get them finished..
I can't believe how quickly December is approaching! Jim put up our new tree today, and what a joy it was for him! Our old tree was 10' tall and each branch had to be put in individually and "fluffed up!" The new tree comes in sections with the branches hinged and you just put them together, the branches fall into place, you plug it in and "voila"...a beautiful lighted Christmas tree! A two day process was shortened to less than an hour! A reason to smile! :0)
We are taking K and R to "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" this afternoon...looks like a magical way to begin the season!
