It's looking a lot like Christmas around our house these days. Everyone has pitched in to help decorate. The boys put up the outside decorations. Emily helped me set the village up. We decided on a different location this year, which involved a ladder, agility and the fearlessness of a 13-year-old. It's hard to get a picture of it, but it looks so pretty with all the lights on, nestled on this ledge.
The big star behind the tree is actually a mirror that was already hanging on the wall. I like the way it adds more sparkle to the lights.
Em has been a big help with the baking. I was thinking it would be a good idea to start it early, but now I'm not so sure. Perhaps it would help if I found a better hiding place for all the tins of cookies:)
It's good to be up and running again on my blog. Now, I need to make the rounds and get caught up with reading all my favorite blogs. I hope your season is merry!
