FOR THE UPCOMING
We can not believe it has been a year since we celebrated our last Christmas here. Where did that year go!
I was able to get our apartment ready for the upcoming Christmas Holidays this afternoon. It really doesn't take very long when the apartment is on the 'small' size! But adequate for us nonetheless!
The red 'runner' is one I purchased on one of our weekend trips a couple of months ago....and it was even on SALE!! We have to love our sales now don't we!
We have TWO CHRISTMAS TREES this year......you can see them on our table! Now that is our kind of tree decorating. Easy to put up and take down....and no needles all over. Actually, we purchased the taller wooden tree from the Christmas Tori last year. The small beeswax tree is from the German Christmas Tori given to us last year by a member of the Temple Presidency. The handmade porcelain nativity set we also purchased at the Christmas Tori last year and was made by a sweet Finnish lady. I will be hand carrying that one home with us in April!
With a light gentle snow falling outside and everything white it feels like it should be Christmas next week. Alas....there are many 'things' going on between now and then so we definitely do not want to rush it!
