I've not decorated one cookie this week.......but I've accomplished my goal.
The house is now officially decorated for Christmas. :)
The main task was to put up my seven trees.....including our 12 ft tree in the great room.
Welcome to my home.......
From the front door.....you can see the snowman tree in the entry, the bare tree next to my quilt rack (I'll explain in a minute), then my little gingerbread tree.....and then our 12 foot tree. I love it!
Our giant tree holds all the ornaments from our 31 years of marriage and five children. We've accumulated lots of ornaments in that time.....and lots of terrific memories. :)
My favorite tree.......the snowman tree. I've been collecting snowmen for a long, long time. (I'll be 50 years old in December....and have been collecting snowmen most of those years.)
I LOVE snowmen and enjoy this tree so much. :)
My favorite color is purple.....so I started a purple tree a few years ago. It has been harder to find purple ornaments.....but some how I've managed to fill up the tree. ;)
Here is my smaller candy cane tree. This is not a very good pic.....but at least you can tell it has some candy canes on it. lol
Here's my much smaller gingerbread tree. In the smallest pic in the bottom left.....notice the bare tree to the left. That is my newest tree.....soon to be my COOKIE tree. I will be putting fresh wrapped cookies on it to offer to my guests when they come visit. (You are welcome to stop by. :))
And last....but certainly not least.....is my kitchen tree. Again.....another bad pic, but I think you can see it enough to know what it has on it.
I included a close-up of my newest kitchen tree ornament. :) I found the mixer at Hobby Lobby. It makes smile every time I see it. =)
So......now that I'm ready for Christmas, it is time to get into the kitchen and decorate cookies. I've got a batch waiting for me, but first I wanted to post these pics.
I hope to have some Christmas cookie pics for you this weekend. :))))))))))
