Christmas 2009

The stockings were hung and filled with trinkets and polar bear poops..[yogurt covered almonds]

Santa hung on the wall watching who was good..and no so bad..

Time flew by with the grandkids..and was only a 'matter of time' that I caught their flu germs..3 days after they got here! Dang..

The glass ornaments were safe ... all snug in the cabinet!

Added a few new ones this year, trio of bluebirds, mushrooms, frosted cakes, plus a slice of pumpkin pie and a pink poodle!

Kept my little elf made by 'Kelly Cottrell' of 'Red Polka Dots' [from Vivan's Elf Swap] in a special spot..

Hung some big glass ornaments on the swag...

Some of my small trees and stuff...
Did not take out all my Christmas stuff this year as I had planned.. got sick and really no room to do much with 4 extra people in the house..but was still a good Christmas... we had family, food, snow and lots of silliness...

The night before Christmas...

Kept all the holiday lights on all night for the everything would be ready for that early morning surprise!
Pink 'Dora' and 'Sponge Bob' wrappings were a must this year..The green tub was filled with 'Fancy Nancy' dress-up clothes...

My son -in -law is behind the tree playing on the computer..[think he liked our computer niche..]
Since the kids are small we decorated the real tree in shatterproof ornaments..
At the end of the day when all the wrappings and toys were cleared away.. 'Baby Girl' nestled under the tree on the old quilt..

Hi Debra! Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy New Year! Mmm I couldn't find your son in law anywhere behind the tree, reminds me of those 'Where is Wally?' books! But I didn't mind to take a closer look at your Christmas photos, no not at all! Love all glass ornaments, especially the figurines!

Debra, these photos are gorgeous! I had to smile when you said you didn't get out ALL your Christmas stuff. You've got loads more than me, believe me! Hope you're feeling better. I've had that flu crud once and am battling not to get it again. It's gone around at work so many times I've lost count!

Have a great weekend!!
