We have decided to stay home for Christmas. We usually travel every year to see family for the holiday. We are looking forward to relaxing and enjoying our home. However, we may sneak off to NYC to Rockefellar Center to see the enormous Christmas tree and do some skating! Can't wait!
My little built in corner hutch. There were so many things I wanted to do as far as decorating for Christmas. Time just flew by and I was distracted by other things. So, I didn't do that much! *Note to self....Refer back to this post so you remember how behind you were with decorating in 2009! Start earlier...make plans ahead of time, like in September!
Nutcrackers on the mantel. Our daughter traditionally receives one after dancing in the Nutcracker every year. I never pictured decorating with Nutcrackers, but they actually look cute!
My favorite Nutcracker that I bought at Bombay Co. years ago. His teeth are kind of funny but it is so much fun to unwrap him every year and hang a stocking.
Our Christmas tree...
Looks like we are going to have a white Christmas! My daughter was wishing for one. That wish usually comes true here in Massachusetts!
We are all enjoying our new bird feeder! We really love watching who shows up everyday. I am so happy that the birds have something to eat during all this cold weather. The Cardinal and Blue Jay are my favorites!
Turning into a snowman expert!
Maggie, our dog, is a glove thief! She loves her new treasure!
With all this snow and frigid weather...It is great to end it with a wonderful big pot of chicken soup!
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas! We are looking forward to a great 2010!!!!!
Where have the years gone?
