Today we dragged out the Rubbermaid totes full of Christmas ornaments. The lights went outside, as did the wreath on the door and the snowman on the arbor bench. The stockings were hung, candles put out, the table centerpiece remade with holly boughs and berries. It is so comforting to see the same beautiful things every year and to remember all the times that we've had with them in sight. I love all of my Christmas treasures.
Tomorrow we will get our tree and decorate it in front of the fire, with hot chocolate, Christmas music and maybe even cookies fresh from the oven.
I will post photos soon...
