JJ, I haven't thought of that - our grandchildren DO allow us to see Christmas through their eyes and life in general, if we allow them.

Ladies, this may be the time to invest in Oreo stock.

Thanks for the memory lane stroll, chickadee. There was blue willow china in the built-in hutch in the kitchen at my grandparents house, too. I so loved all the different rooms with steps up to and down into; front stairs; kitchen stairs. Old houses are just so great.

Mosspatch, where are your grandparents from? I love old houses, too. I feel at home in them. We had a huge round dining table in the "front room" and an organ that was a monster to move, but Mom managed it twice a year.

I have to say that my livingroom, diningroom looks like a Christmas card when all the decorations are lit up. I love Christmas lights. I have cut down a lot of the decorating this year but do have something on every wall area and the table has a red velvet tablecloth trimmed in gold and deep green silk place mats. The manger is in the center. I may live alone but hey Christmas is only once a year and I deserve to be as festive as anyone with a house full. Remember that you singles out there and celebrate....

Good for you Chatty! I've been decorating this morning since 5:30, when the dogs woke me up. I would've gone back to bed, but there was a rabbit in the yard and I had to go out to make sure it survived - that was enough to get me wide awake! [Eek!] Anywho, I splurged and bought a tree I've had my eye on at Smith Hawkins. It's a simple iron tree and I set it on my coffee table, which works because you can see through it. [Big Grin]

I've decided I don't have enough decorations and I'm going out today to find some bargains.

We decorated INSIDE today and hopefully will get OUTSIDE done tomorrow. Every year it seems to take us longer to get all those boxes up out of the basement with all the Christmas decorations - or am I just getting older ?!?!?!?!?! LOL Anyway, we had a lot of fun reminiscing as we put our ornaments on the tree....we collect ornaments on each of our trips and getting them out each year gets us talking about our "trip memories".

The house looks really festive.....I'll be happy to have the outside done tomorrow - just pine roping on the porch railing with white lights woven through it and big red bows.

Pam, reading your post makes me realize I need to get off this computer and go start decorating. While I was out today, hubby got all the decorations out of the attic. He is getting the tree in the stand now. I am going to fold a load of laundry (another load of laundry) then begin taking things out and placing them around the house. I love this time of year.

This is a fun forum. I enjoy picturing everyone's homes and thinking aboaut all of us gearing up for the big day.
