Inside the box we found...-A 3-foot tall 'Dollar Store' Christmas tree which David and I bought when we were dating eleven-years-ago.
-Icicle lights that are hanging across the front porch.
-Colored lights for the inside windows and white lights for the tree!
-We found a few cherished decorations that belonged to my Grame. I remember counting down the days to Christmas on them when I was little!
-Don't forget the Christmas Casette tapes! :) Yep :) Bing Crosby :)
-Soldier hung up the Santa parachuting and Elf in the plane which spins around and around! Kinda like a mobile. The plane propeller creates momentum to turn them!
-We hung up the little ornaments and it wasn't complete until I'd hung up my tatted snowflake which my Greatgrama had made for my first birthday!
-We put out a few nativities, a 3" stuffed reindeer, an angel, a little red bucket and the story book that goes along with it. My little village fits perfectly under the tree on glittery white batting! A few more Christmas books and cards are set out, the wreath is on the door, a few more decorations on the window ledge, and we're all set!
This year I even get to watch the fire burning in our wood stove!
There are only a few things that would make it perfect.. Bubbler lights for the tree and The Bradford Celestial Light Tree Topper... though I'd have to get a bigger tree :) These were just two of the Christmas decorations that I miss from my childhood. Of course, if I go 'home' to Mom and Dad's I can enjoy them again!!!
I'm so blessed and pray that God will watch over you and your loved ones as we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior!!!
