Christmas is at our house this year.
Last year we were the ones to travel
so didn't do any decorating, tree, anything.
Since this year it's here,
we went and found a nice little tree last weekend.
There were several 'bottoms' along side the road
where people had chopped down a tree then 'topped' it.
We also found several that people just topped.
That kinda gripes me.
We decided to stop and get one of the bottoms along side the road
to use for boughs and such.
One of our little traditions is lighting the candles on the tree
Christmas eve, but we usually have lights as well.
This tree is so simple,
I decided we would just have the candles and a few select ornaments.
I have several sheep ornaments and since we are the lambs...
We don't leave them unattended.
Usually, we sit a watch them burn for a little bit and chit-chat quietly.
Our unfinished mantel has lots of boughs and a few simple splashes of red.
Instead of our regular stockings, I just hung a pair of old wool socks
that are in need of some darning.
The nativity scene where the TV used to be.And a simple candle with pine always seems comforting.
Wishing you all many happy Christmas blessings.
Until next time,
