Hello Everyone,

I thought I would show you a little of the Christmas decorations around our home. Since we had our first snow yesterday, I really feel the holidays arriving quickly! First up our tree.

You will notice several things different about it this year. We did not string our normal beads on them, nor do we have ornaments hanging near the bottom. Why you ask? Because of our newest cat that we adopted in July. You will recall by clicking here. We just weren't sure of how he would be with the tree and decided not to chance it at all.

Next up our ever growing nutcracker collection. I started this tradition with our kids years ago. Each Christmas they each get a new and unique nutcracker. When they finally have their own home they can take them with and start it with their family. What traditions do you have?

I really love the variety that we have and I try to choose ones that suit the kids personalities.

Here is our Nativity. Yes, this is the Jim Shore Nativity set. I just fell in love with it years ago when he first came out with it and had to have it. The kids enjoy setting it up every year.

Last but not least, the boys are just totally pooped from all this decorating. So Rolo and Pavi are relaxing by the tree.

Now for me off to do some shopping! Still a bit left to do and not a lot of time to spare. Don't forget today is the last day to use the coupon code happy20 on my online fabric shop. You'll get 20% off your order. So go ahead and do some last minute Christmas shopping for your quilting buddy. Enjoy!

Until Next Time...
