I am almost done decorating the house for Christmas but I did take shortcuts this year. I didn't put up my small hutch trees. I also didn't put my dishes in the hutch either or put swags above my pictures in the house. On the outside we didn't hang the wreaths in every window. We did add some multi colored rope light to our new deck. Trying to stay with the easy route this year. Since I started so late.
Hope every one's Christmas planning is going well. Also to our friends and Family that are out of jobs and falling on tough times.....we send out our prayers and thoughts your way. It's tough times and this Christmas we made a pack with some family to cut back. So we wanted an old fashion Christmas with less gifts and more enjoying of food, wine and company. Stay home and enjoy home cookins, Fresh Coffee brewed at home(not at Starbucks) LOL, and homemade cookies, bars, and treats. Egg nog, cider and peppermint cocoa(YUM)! Plus, House Gawking at lights(that is free except for the gas-but gas prices went down so it's not so bad now).
Keep a look out for our family Christmas card soon. I will be posting my family photo card soon.
