Some Christmas decorations...

Today Justin and I did a little bit of Christmas decorating. We had such a fun time, and right now are sitting back (exhausted!) enjoying some pretty lights and actually watching The Santa Clause! Love this movie!!


First thing this morning, we took the wreath out to Jonathan's grave. When we got there, there were some flowers left on his grave, right by his angel. How special that someone else came by to remember our sweet boy. Thank you to whoever this was--I don't know if you read my blog, but I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate this and how speical that was to us!!





Then, on to decorating the house...


Here is Justin "up on the rooftop" making our house pretty!!


A little decorations on the inside, too. As you can see from the fall leaves still sitting on the couch, we are not done yet, but just thought I'd post a few pictures!

Here are our stockings--yes, even Betsy has a stocking!
I love putting up my nativity scene each year--I've done it each year since I was a little girl! We got this Willow Tree set for our wedding, and I've wanted to get the whole set (creche, animals, wise me) for years, but just never have. Maybe next year!
And the outside--not the clearest picture, but I love the way the big lightbulbs look!





Hope you're having a great start to the Christmas season!

We spend a lot of money on decorations on Christmasevery year to decorate many things. Sometimes we feel something is still missing, and that's our creativity.We can decorate flowers and use them with many things to let originality show and be admired by people.
