It is Looking alot like Christmas

I love to decorate for Christmas.  I have many little things that have been given to me as gifts. My birthday is the first week in December so alot of my friends and family get me a new ornament or decoration.

Last year we gave in and purchased an artificial tree,  verdict is still out on it. It is pretty and easy but I miss the smell of the fresh trees so much. The balls that are white on the tree are handmade by my daughter in law and each has a picture of our family, one of myself, hubby, son, daughter in law and a couple of grandson #1, she is making me one with grandson #2  for this year.  It is a tradition for her mom has one of each grandchild!

The Navitity Scene was a gift from Hubby's employer one year!  The 2 ornaments on speakers were gifts from son's mother in law for my birthday.

This year it looks like we may have a green Christmsas... I would really love to have a bit of snow. Mind you not much as we have many plans for the holidays.

And those 2 adorable boys are my gifts from my son and his wife!

I so wish I could have sent you some snow as your Secret Santa!!! We have more than enough here in Montreal. Your preparations look amazing and I wish we were as far as you! My mom arrives tomorrow and yet, we have a tree with no lights, and the creche (made by my godmother) is still packed away! I'm sure your grandsons will appreciate your decor - it looks amazing :) In the end, it's all about being together.
