Christmas 2011 Decor

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by.  How do you like the new Christmas colors?   If you are like me, I have to be in the "mood" to decorate.  Sadly, I have been a little under the weather lately, so I have a lot of catching up to do.  Put some Christmas music on and wha-la......I was cured! :)  Here are some pics of Christmas 2011 decorations.  I will be posting this year's soon.  Stop by again soon!  

My daughter, Darla and our baby yorkie, "Munchie" at Christmas.  I "wish" I knew then that I should have opened the door - duh?  I actually had not started "blogging" then - am I forgiven?

Mantle - Wrote "N O E L" with black marker on white candles.


Grandchildren are my favorite Christmas present!  From the top to the left : Zachary, Teale, Saylor & Lake.

Manger given to us by my Mother and Father 44 years ago for our first Christmas together!  Amazingly, it still looks new.  Hubby was looking on the bottom of the figurines while I was putting it up and they say, "Made in Italy".  Wow, we did not know that.  That star you see on the top was made by my Dad before he went to be with the Lord.  They didn't have very much money that year, so he said he would make one - my Mom laughing all the time.  (My Dad loved Christmas and all the Holidays and made sure everyone was happy).  He never knew how precious that small aluminum foil star would be to me and my family every year, because he made it and it touched his hands.  What a very, very special lasting gift to us. (Jesus is everywhere, you just have to look for Him).  I wrap a string of white lights all around it and it looks amazing at night!  After all, Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
