Annette, John and Seth - we had our Christmas with them on Sunday the 5th. Derek and Miranda with the children had dinner with us and then we exchanged gifts. Here are a few pics from that day and some around the yard.
Before dark are pictures of my wreath and front door
I put wreaths in the windows this year, I think I like the look of full window swags better.
After Christmas in 2012 , I found this Santa Face at a Florist in Gordonsville Va. was originally 11.99, but I paid less than half for it.

Outside the deer is lit along with the tree near the creek bed
Now have to get to work and take down all of this. Will put it up again this year in about 10 months.
Becky decorated moms house very nice this year, as mom can't really do it anymore. A few pictures here to see of her decorations.
A door wreath I made for her some years back
I always find a place for a butterfly as I like them decorating my trees too.
Pretty old fashioned carousel Lynn gave her
the music sounds like the music from the carousel at our state fair
such festive painted pieces
oh yes, Mr pine cone tree who sings and talks
I like the angel at the top of the tree with the star suspended from ceiling
the strand of garland has dimensional stars, can't find this anymore anywhere.
water globe nativity that is wound up to play music and bottom area revolves
cute Santa strand on curtains in kitchen, i like this and a perfect place for them
Pretty blue angel sits on dining room table where the cards below were standing up beside her.
She didn't receive a card from one daughter and niece this year and last year, they are the only two missing. If they see this, maybe give mom a call.
Becky decorated the outside very pretty also with the sweet bows attached to the greenery
