It was high time I started decorating, so I pulled out a few boxes and put up a few things. I don't remember it taking this much effort when I was younger and had kids to help me. I concentrated on the living room today.
I'm embarrassed to say that this Christmas wall hanging never came down after last year.
The creche and a few miniature manger scenes fit nicely on the table below. The "fancy" stockings have a home on the living room fireplace. The ones Santa will fill will be in the family room.
The Advent tree yielded a very welcome treat after the efforts of the day --
Yes, I needed that after hauling boxes up from the basement and digging through closets for missing items. Note to Self: have a better plan for next year!
