Christmas at our home

My daughter's party is over so it was time to whip out our Christmas decorations! I enjoy the change in season and all the pretty things I have to pull out. Some of my favorites are the skates (that I wore as a child) hanging off the birdhouse and all the red berries in the wreath and garlands. I thought it would be fun, instead of a card post, to show my home at Christmas.
Here is our tree filled with decorations the kids have made and that we have collected through the 14 years of our married life. What a joy to go through them every year and reminisce. Lucy even sneaked her way into this photo.
I must quickly take photos before the snow is gone tomorrow, or looks like a mucky mess. For today, the scenery is gorgeous! The tree branches droop with the heavy wet snow. My poor little landscaping lights are drooping too. It is all very pretty so I am sitting at my window enjoying the view. I am so pleased I don't need to travel anywhere today.
