I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I sure did. I spent time with my family, cooked, shopped, and finished most of my Christmas decorating. I usually do all of the inside decorating, and my husband takes care of the outside. I am hoping the weather isn't too bad this week (even though the forecast says otherwise), so he can put them up. I will post pictures of the outside once it is complete.
But for now, I will continue to show you the inside of our little home decorated. This post is all about our Christmas tree. I informed you in my first Christmas decorating post that we had to get a new tree this year because our lights went out on our pre-lit tree last year. I finally made that purchase Saturday and got it up and decorated today. Now, it officially feels like Christmas around the Morgan household!
In addition to the decorating, I have a little surprise to share...
Today was my step-dad's birthday. So, our family went out to eat and ate cake & ice cream. When we got home this evening, Miss. Kate had a surprise waiting on her... Holly (her magical elf that Santa sent) had arrived!!! I think she was waiting on the Christmas tree to be put up.
Take a look at our tree & Holly's arrival!!!
Our tree with the room lights on.
Our tree with the room lights off (a little blurry from the lights).
The bow tree topper that I made. I purchased the ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
YouTube can teach you how to do anything!
One of my favorite ornaments that I purchased this year.
Glory Haus that I purchased from Hilltop House
HERE'S HOLLY!!! Do you see her in the tree???
A closeup of her.
The goodies she brought with her.
The car magnet that Holly brought.
Mommy reading Holly's book and letter to Miss. Kate.
I think she likes Holly!
This Santa Claus is as old as me (made in 1982).
It was my memaw's Christmas decoration that I loved!
And, now Kate loves it too.
This Winne the Pooh was one of the first gifts my sister
ever bought me with her own money. And, the Santa is from my
mother-in-law. He is actually attached to the tree and can turn it on and off. ; )
