We traditionally go a cut our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. But, Lindsay was at work and the younger girls had a sleepover at Grandma and Grandpa's. What to do? We went anyway! Emily and Kyle helped us pick a great tree!
Isn't it lovely? We all liked it right away!
Mr. Red Boots was very pleased with it!
Speaking of boots, check out my cute plaid boots from Target! These are the first real snow boots I have ever had...they come in handy for wet, muddy situations, too. Besides, I adore plaid!
The tree was cut in a matter of minutes, thanks to my man!
My little man loves to help his Daddy...here he is trying to help carry the tree!
After the whole afternoon decorating the house and tree...here she is in all her glory, in the morning light...sigh...so beautiful!
A bit of tidying this morning and I am basically done. I have a few more things to show you and then I hope to link up to a Christmas Open House or Party.
Well, my home beckons. Laundry to fold and put away, some much needed vacuuming ( I love to add Orange and Spice scented oil to my vacuum cleaner bag! Make a wonderful fragrance all through the room), some dusting, you know the basic home keeping work. I don't always "love" to do these things, especially when I would rather read, or play with my computer. But I do love the privilege the Lord has given me to have my family and home, and to extend hospitality to others through my home. So I try to cheerfully do the foundational work of the home that allows me the fun and public functions of my home. Does that make sense?
Have a wonderful day, in whatever you do today!
