It's Looking a Lot Like Christmas




Yes, it's definitely looking a lot like Christmas everywhere we go.


These are some of the absolutely gorgeous decorations gracing our Country Club.  It looks like a winter wonderland when you walk in.  Perfectly beautiful!


This past Friday at noon I hosted our annual staff Christmas lunch.  And, yes, that is straws you see at each plate, I must have a straw and I figure everyone else needs one too. ~proper or not~ I love the Spode Christmas dishes.  And, believe it or not, they are melamine!


It's a fairly "girly affair" but Hubby and Brandon are gracious and let us girls have a good time.  It's always fun to have them in our home to show our sincere appreciation for the job they do.  And, as you can see, Miss Scarlett had to get in on the action as well.  She had to get in at least one of the pictures. ~chuckle~


The assisted living facility where my Dad lives had their Christmas gathering this past Friday evening.  Everything was decorated to the hilt thanks to one dear lady that gives of her time and uses her own decor.  The residents and all that come and go enjoy it so much.  It's a true labor of love on her part for sure! It has a beautiful Christmas look!


And, I've been looking a lot like Christmas too.  About 4-5 years ago I found these beautiful Christmas sweaters by Berek.  They have such a nice and classy look about them and I've enjoyed them so much.  The one above is a cardigan.



The details on each sweater is amazing and they hold up beautifully.  I love this one with the Santa, just so cute and festive. This was the very first one I bought.


And, I added this one to my collection this year.  I just loved the animal print and the fringe around the bottom (you may not can see it).  I'll be checking to see which ones they have left on sale after Christmas as that's when I like to buy them.  Half price or less is always a good thing!


Our Oklahoma family arrived yesterday afternoon so we are in full Christmas mode around here.  That means there will be no blogging but a lot of memory making.  I'll look forward to sharing some of those memories with you in the days ahead.  May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas as we celebrate our dear Savior's birth!
