Since December is halfway gone I thought it might be a good idea to show you a little bit of my dining room Christmas decor before it's time to take it all down.
All the changes I made in the cottage over the last few months really brightened up my usually traditional decorations. By the time I realized I could use a few new things, the stores were sold out.
I think next year instead of complaining about how quickly the Christmas decoration start showing up I better start shopping for them. By the time December rolls around the shelves were looking a little bare.
Most of what I put out I've had for years. Just seeing it against a white backdrop made it all seem new again.
My six year old grandson loves Christmas, yes for the presents, but also for the music and the decorations. Just wait till I show you our tree this year. He chose it on the lot and then decorated it once I hung the lights. I promise I only moved one or two things he put on...really.
I am off to buy that one last gift and then I hope to finish up the last of the wrapping this afternoon. I promised a certain little boy that we could start our baking after he gets out of school today and I know he'll hold me to it. We have five different cookies to make so I'm sure the flour will be flying!
I'm thinking it might be a little too early to start baking but the next few days are full of festivities so I will probably end up freezing a few things. What about you? What will you be baking this year?
Have a wonderful Thursday!
