Goal's Accomplished

I set a few goals of what I wanted to get done this past week while I was off. The main goal was to put up Christmas decorations (for the first time in 4 years). The first step in this goal was cleaning before I decorated 'cause once the decorations are up it's hard for me to clean around them. This step was accomplished Monday (plus washing all my clothes from our Thanksgiving trip). Next step was to get Uncle D to get all the decorations out of the attic which was accomplished Tuesday evening. Tuesday I accomplished another goal of getting a Christmas letter together to friends and family that I don't communicate with except at Christmas along with addressing some Christmas cards. The tree was put up Tueday evening and I started the decorating and finished it Wednesday. Here are some pictures of the tree and hearth:

On and around the fireplace are some of my nativity collection.

This is a little village that my mom collected (we made weekly trips to Dillards to buy) and of which she was so proud. This is the first time I've displayed it since mom went to heaven.

Another goal I set was to get most of my Christmas shopping done. I have only a few incidentals left but the majority is done (YEAH!) The Christmas cards were mailed Friday. So all in all I have accomplished nearly all my goals except baking and this may be the year that I don't bake.

OK Judy -- I really feel bad. I left Saturday for Puerto Vallarta leaving behind a naked Christmas tree (but it is up) and only a few of my decorations out. There are not many decorations or Christmas music here and we are in our swim suits most of the time so it doesn't feel like the holidays. Can't wait to reture home!
