"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas." ... and feeling like it too!

Sharing my living room decorations with you.

My collection of Snow Babies.
The Christmas card standing in the back was
sent by my husband to his parents when
he was in the U. S. Army station in Germany in 1966.
I wish I could get a good picture of the inside for you to see.
It's a pop-up card - so sweet.

The Snow Baby in the back reading a story to the penguins
was given to me when my Dad passed away in 1998.
It's very special.

The snowman fat snowman plays
"Frosty the Snowman"
This was a gift for a special friend.

Christmas Morn
This little Snow Baby is getting ready to open
her Christmas stocking.  The baby reading the
book is staying toasty warm by the lighted fireplace.

Love the tree after it is up. 
But, it is so heavy and such a
hassel to get it up and "dressed".
Guess who gets it up and ready for the decorations.
Yep, Mr. Handy Dandy Hubby.

I have a collection of nutcrackers.  Instead of grouping them
all together this year, they are standing guard here and
there all around the house.

Love this old Christmas card I framed
twenty-five years ago.
It says it all.

Merry, Merry Christmas, y'all.

Christmas wouldn't be the same without this nativity.
Our greatest gift - Jesus Christ, our Savior.

We bought this Lefton set on Christmas Eve in
1970, after finding a surprise check in our mailbox
from Uncle Sam because we had overpaid our
taxes three years before.
