As promised....

 Happy Christmas Eve, blogger friends!  I promised you a Christmas tree tour last time.  Here is a mini-version.  

Through the years, many of our ornaments have gone by the wayside.  These are three of our most recent additions, all gifts from friends.

The top one and the one on the bottom are from the same friend.  How appropriate that a mixer and mixing bowl hang from the tree!  I’ve certainly kept the mixer busy this season!  The lower ornament is actually a gift for The Husband.  He had a good chuckle when he opened the package!  Quite the perfect choice for him!

The one in the middle was sent by a friend in England a few years ago.  I’ve kept the ribbon length for display.

During these very different times, the calendar advances, and we are at a special time.  We plan to join with Christmas Eve services through the online option from our church website.  How are you observing Christmas Eve/Day?

Take care!  Be safe, and stay well!


  1. What a lovely collection of ornaments, Sister! My DIL very wisely suggested that we have Christmas a day early due to weather predictions. She was right! As we sat around visiting, someone looked out and declared that it was snowing! Sooooo, I made a hasty trip to my car and headed home, driving in blowing snow all the way! I hope you'll have a warm and safe Christmas Eve. Please pass my good thoughts and wishes along to The Husband! Love you!

  2. Love the mixing bowl ornament! Perfect for you. :)
    Have a Very Merry Christmas!!

I'm staying overnight at my daughter and son-in-law's house so I will see kids opening gifts from Santa. JOY!
