Hey, everyone! Christmas time is here again. Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? As with my household, we are always excited for Christmas. There are lots of fun holiday activities for kids, a number of Christmas party invites, huge feeling of Christmas cheer, and exciting shopping experiences during this most wonderful time of the year.
We started decorating our home for Christmas the weekend we got home from our Thanksgiving travels. My darling daughter helped me decorate the Christmas tree. It’s so lovely and bright. I am adding white on our tree this time. Also, I put red cardinal birds on our tree. The idea of the cardinal bird as part of this year’s holiday decor came into my mind the moment I received a holiday mug, Christmas gift from my cousin in Oregon (thanks again N), with a cardinal design on it. Then while my family and I were strolling by the lake one fine afternoon during the holidays, I saw a pair of cardinal birds roosting upon a tree at the lake. I felt good inside. It’s just an uplifting thought for me.
We did not buy a new Christmas tree. And for the ornaments, I only bought a few white flowers from Michaels and the cardinal birds from Kohls. The mantel still needs decorating though. I still have to figure out where to put our Christmas stockings.
