Dreaming of White Christmases and decked halls...
Decorating the tree was very fun! My sister-in-law went for a red-white-black-and silver theme this year and the ornaments are very pretty and almost vintage style. The tree is tall and beautiful if I do say so myself. A touch that I had not previously thought of myself was my sister-in-law's idea of hanging large ornaments from the ceiling and they look absolutely wonderful! We were able to procure six large ornaments in a package from Costco and used only 5 along the crease of the ceiling. There is truly nothing I love better than Christmas decorations!
A Charlie Brown Christmas, California Raisins Christmas Special and more. On Christmas Day in the evening we'll watch It's a Wonderful Life and one other film which I cannot remember at present. I am eager to see how well received my gifts are to their recipients. For the following Christmas I hope to be better prepared.
I think I will begin my Christmas shopping for next year in June or thereabouts. At the very least for my nieces and nephew to whom I want to be able to give several gifts next year. I do hope that I will be better off financially by then. At any rate, I suppose it is the thought that counts when giving gifts. I hope to have another post for you all tomorrow. Enjoy your week and I will greet you again soon!
