...it's been a little while since I've posted but I finally feel like I'm catching up with what all needs to be done for the holiday season. We had a lovely Thanksgiving. My daughter was home for a week from college and it was really nice being all together. The girls and I finally applied for our passports. It's been a long time in waiting. I'm embarrassed to tell you how long. Kurt has been after us for years (I guess that will give you a clue) to apply for them. We attempted a few times before but the girls and I didn't like our pictures. We were always told you couldn't smile for your passport pictures but last week we found out otherwise. We got to smile and we were all OK with the pictures this time. Quite honestly...no matter how those pictures came out we'd use them. So that's done!! Below is a picture of my mother, sister, her husband, the girls and Kurt on Thanksgiving. My nephew Jeff wanted me to post a picture of everyone at the table so Jeff this is for you!
Started my decorating this week. Last weekend went to the tree farm and cut down our tree. Since Aubrey was still home we decided we could use her muscles before she headed back to school. We put the tree in a bin outside with water and this weekend we'll put it up in the house. With all of the other decorations up already it just doesn't feel complete until the Christmas tree is up and decorated. Don't you agree? Next week I'll post some of my favorite decorations in the house.
I can share with you now a picture of our outside front entry. I enjoy decorating with fresh greens any where I can....so natural and nostalgic.
Well off to make a list. These days when I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with things to do and ideas...I make a list and that seems to calm me down. Enjoying the season entails keeping the stress level down. Right? lol. ~amy
