One of my favorite times of year to decorate is Christmas. The whole house just feels cozier. I tried something new for the fireplace this year and thought it turned out nicely! Wish it had been real pine. I love the way it looks and smells, but the needles dry out and get stuck in the kids’ socks.
I put white lights in it and plugged them in after dark. I loved the way it made the room glow. It was really pretty even though this picture doesn’t do it justice.
The kids helped decorate the Christmas tree. I don’t think they noticed that I moved ornaments around after they went to bed. I blame my OCD tendencies for not being able to leave well enough alone!
My little buddies also helped me make treats for our friends. These are some of my favorites. You soften a rolo on top of a pretzel then push it down with a pecan. Yum! I was making cornflake wreaths in the front. Tony loves those!
It was a fun time of year. The kids could barely wait for Christmas to come around!
