Finally Decorated and Mother Nature Took Care of the Outdoors!

W ell, we have at least 18 inches of snow and drifts two times that! It is very pretty and luckily it was a weekend so there wasn't any work panic! I am so sslow at getting ready this year. I was way ahead, I thought, but this stinkin' flu really hung around and I am still so tired and I still have a cough...hate that!

But, I finally took some pics around the house, so here they are. I decorate a lot. If someone gave it to me, I feel I have to put it out. This year, I gave up after a while, so this is less than usual...and not as carefully placed. It was out of the box-good enough-naptime!
 First this- the best decorations in a home!

Now, the house.

I'll take a daylight pic.

My mom made those puffy trees.

I usually put stuff away and then decorate ...not this year..piled it on!

Tree looks better in person..all those kid ornaments.....

"If you like to make things out of wood, or sew, or dance, or style people's hair, or dream up stories and act them out, or play the trumpet, or jump rope, whatever you really love to do, and you love that in front of your children, that's going to be a far more important gift than anything you could ever give them wrapped up in a box with ribbons. And what's more: the last thing in the world you have to be is perfect at it. It's the spirit that gives that kind of gift its wings."
