I don't know how you feel, but for me, Fridays are even happier during the holiday season, if that's even possible.
Here are a few more pictures from Christmas Past, 2011.
I don't know what all the fuss is that I see about the "elf on a shelf", but this is my elf. He is handmade and I bought him several years ago at a Christmas Fair at the hospital where I was working.
He had a buddy, but I lent it to a co-worker so she could make a pattern of her own and I never got him back. My poor lonely elf. I think about his partner every year. Look at that precious ric rac hair.
(And yes, I put Christmas bows everywhere.)
The garland on the tree below was cut out from an old calendar.
I love all the colors it had it in. Kind of pinks and reds.
You see the nativity on the white table above? My sister
and her husband made those years ago.
The figures are carved into the wood blocks and then painted. I love them.
Happy Weekend, and take it easy.
Don't sweat it if everything isn't as perfect as you pictured in your mind.
Christmas time is supposed to be peaceful.
