Starting to Put Christmas Decorations Up

Cool weather (finally), college football conference games, NFL contenders (Go Saints!! Isn’t Drew Brees incredible!) starting to pull away from the crowd (a little), all sure signs that Christmas and Winter Solstice are approaching. This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite times of year for many reasons. But, there is also the painful reminder of my father’s passing in December 2001. Life is beautiful and bittersweet.

I am trying to finish up a project at work so I can take some time off over the holidays, consequently I haven’t been able to get all of my holiday decorations up yet, but I did want to share some preliminary photos. I still struggle to take decent inside pictures with our digital camera, but hopefully you will enjoy a little of the warmth of our home in early winter. Ron has also done a great job of lighting on the outside of the house, and I will be taking some photos of the exterior in the next few days, so – stay tuned for more holiday cheer and warm wishes from our house to yours.

Here are photos of our Christmas tree and a table top Christmas village vignette. Once I get all of the decorating complete I will share a few more photos of the interior of our ‘log cabin’.
