We managed to get the tree up and today, I was able to find the ornament boxes, even found the yo yo tree skirt I made two years ago.......we have so many ornaments..this isn't even all of them....we both love Christmas and have collected tons after 36 years of marriage......I plan on handing some over to the kids when they have homes of their own.........
here is one special ornament that I especially like... the boys dressed up as clowns..Christmas was so much fun when they were little



I have about 50 of different Campbells soup kids ornaments...


here is one of the shoe ornaments, I won from Penniwigs..


I still have a few of my grandmothers ornaments she made back in the 1960s...these little glittered pinecones......


I took a lot more photos of more decorating, but that's enough for today..its very dark, cold and rainy here....Don took his motorcycle out, and didn't realize how wet/cold it was..he came back about 45 minutes later, absolutely chilled and soaked to the bone..he's selling the bike this evening and wanted one last ride...the insurance is just getting to be too much....he's sad about it but is relieved too..he is able to sell for a small profit.....and have a lighter insurance bill....

hope you are getting all your shopping done...I've ordered everything online..so much easier.....
so parking woes..no crowds..good selections.....I've done this now for the last 4 years and have found the holidays alot more stress free and pleasant....it will be cooky time soon.I wait until a week or so before so they are fresh and good.......found several new recipes I want to try plus some old favorites.......
