Getting Ready for Christmas

My DD heads back to college tomorrow. It's been a wonderful time having her home.....and not just be cause she's been cooking lol! Friday we did just a bit of shopping. None of that crazy early morning running all over type stuff. She loves to decorate for Christmas, so that's what we did this weekend. We have 2 trees, one in the family room and one in the living room.

This is the tree in the family room. The picture was taken as the sun was begining to set and was coming through the front window. I really like how it captured the shadow of the tree and lights on the wall.
This is the one in the livingroom. It has all of the kid's ornaments collected over the years. Of course this ornament has to be my favorite. Keep in mind this beauty is now 20 years old.

And here are our stockings. The two stockings on the left are counted cross stitched. I made them for the 2 younger ones 20 years ago. We don't have a mantle to hang them on so the railing to the upstairs does just fine. Of course the decorating isn't done yet. There's still the garlands to hang in the kitchen, the nativity to display and the garlands and wreath for the front porch.

I haven't done one bit of stamping all weekend. (sigh), but the alternative, (spending time with DD), was definitely the better of the 2.
