Some of us might feel like the little fellow pictured above and below-----a bit frazzled but still happy.
Christmas is like that.
Certainly all the glitter and hoopla are wonderful but so are the peaceful, quiet moments.
Like many, Christmas decorations will remain up around here for at least another 12 days.
I like the s-t-r-e-t-c-h the holiday out as much as possible because it's such a beautiful, star-studded time.
I wanted to show you some of the gingerbread cookies made this Christmas. Aren't they pretty?
These last little guys, however, were left "naked." By the time I got to them, I was sick of decorating and called it quits. ha!
Also, here's a shot of our tree by day.
And by night.
It's a beauty, gifted by a dear, long-time friend who no longer wanted a big tree in her house.
It slowly revolves around and around, too, which is kind of a unique feature.
I am soooo grateful to my friend for giving us this lovely tree several years ago and to my daughter for helping put it up and decorate it this year.
SO WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND?
