decorations start with d


Last night I turned all the Christmas lights on... and all of the other lights off. And I just sat... while the room glowed with twinkling colors. It gave me that first-one-awake-on-Christmas morning feeling... when you peer around the corner and see that Santa has come. I love to have the house decorated for Christmas... and there have been years that I thought about not taking them down. Ahem. That is where gotta-be-down-on-Super-Bowl-Sunday deadline came in. Today... I am delighting in the decorations and I wanted to share...
The tree... laden with every memory ever made. From 1969 to 2009...
The little book nook...
Radio City newly inspired by Elf... and Jennifer Juniper.
And my son's favorite nativity. We love how it goes from this....
...to this.

Merry Christmas!

It is A to Z Monday at Jen's Unglazed... and I'm also linking up here...

I spy with my little eye... an ornament just like mine! We have the Precious Moments bride and groom too. But I'm not putting them on the tree right now b/c of the cat. I don't want her to break it if she did something k-razy to the tree. :) I guess we're earlier than most to take down our tree..sometimes we do it on Cmas Day. (is there a collective gasp across the blogosphere?! LOL)
