Yesterday was my favorite kind of "Christmas-season" day! First of all, I didn't have to wake up to my alarm clock. I got to wake up slowly and drink a cup of coffee and watch the Today show. And I tried to watch a little bit of Good Morning America since it was George Stephanopolous' first day on the job.
I pulled out all of my Snow Village houses that I didn't have time to put out earlier. I love this little village. It reminds me of a Norman Rockwell painting where everything is still sweet and unjaded.
I wish I had more room to put all my houses, though. I need to find another, bigger place to spread them out. Do any of you collect some kind of houses or village? Where do you put yours?
I am having my brother and his family over for dinner tonight, so I wanted to get my table set yesterday.
I put out my red and green set of Christmas china.
I have a set of snowman china too that I will use on my kitchen table. And then I just added some things I got at Pier One for the center of the table...
Then, last night we went to my neighbor Candy's house for our annual get together. We call it Chili and Cheer and we have been doing it now for about 10 years. Our kids are all the same ages and they have so much fun getting together. Now that most of them are in college, they don't get to see each other as much as they used to so they love seeing each other and just hanging out. I didn't take as many pictures this year because my kids are starting to complain about how many pictures I take. They will thank me later, right??
We love our neighbors!
