The Decorations Are Up
December 6, 2015 7:46am CST
Busy morning today, I had no time left to log into myLot. First thing in the morning, we have replaced our network printer. I imagine that you all know that it's never quick and easy as it should be, but now it's up and working. Later, I have put up the Christmas decorations, the tree and the crib, I still need to add some garlands and lights, but almost everything is ready for the celebrations. How do you decorate your home?

I love to put up a lot of pine branches. Everywhere I can find a place. I love the smell. I like lights inside and out. With LED now days they are great and energy savers. Candy add a bit of sparkle and warmth I think. I make a wreath out of branches and add some mistletoe and poinsettia.

We put up our tree yesterday, it is the same one as last year but we gave it new lights and it looks quite different now. I still have some ornaments to sort out but we had visitors all day yesterday so I have to content myself with just the tree for the moment.

We have a smaller, probably about a 5 1/2 foot tall artificial tree in our home. We put it on a short table in our family room. We have a snowman and Santa collection, I put these pieces out on our buffet in the dining room. I've taken a lot of years to collect these pieces and they are all so different and unique. We also have a very large nativity scene that we put out last night. The pieces all stand anywhere from about 8 inches to a foot tall and are made of ceramic. Right now, there are just the oxen, and cattle and the manger, we'll add the Mary and Joseph in time, then the shepherds and the baby for the manager on Christmas eve. Shortly after that we have a camel and the 3 wise men to add.

We put up a majority of our decorations on Sunday. The tree, the wreath outside, the festive table runners and several of my table/shelf decorations. I still need to put the fragile/glass ornaments on the tree. The kids decorated the bottom of the tree with the decorations that would not break. I will also put lights on the front window. I always set up a small town on the window ledge and then put white lights around the town and around the window.
