We’re a little behind in our Christmas decorating, but today was the day we cleared our schedules and devoted a little time to getting Happy Acres in the Holiday Spirit. We put on some Christmas music to listen to while we decorated. And of course, age-appropriate headgear was in order.
We decorated trees, including the real one we got from the local tree farm.
And the artificial one on the mantel.
We set up Nativity scenes.
We used new ornaments, like this one I made last year.
And old ones, like this one almost as old as I am.
The cats mostly slept. Sidd couldn’t be bothered to help.
Even the normally curious Puddin slept through most of it.
We took our time and enjoyed ourselves. We stopped for a bite of lunch. And some seasonal sweets.
Then we hung more ornaments. It’s become a tradition for me to make a new ornament (or two) every year. This is the one I made for our first year at HA, a painted and beribboned egg shaped gourd.
It was great to be inside on a cold and snowy day. And a good time was truly had by all. Now I need to get ready and start making the 2010 ornament(s)!
