Putting Up the Tree

A few years ago, my husband fell in love with the idea of the pre-lit tree. Previously, we did the cut-down-your-own-tree thing. While I miss that, the thing that I like about the pre-lit tree is that I can have my husband put it up as soon as I want;) We put our tree up on the day we got back from vacation, which was November 26.

He Didn't Say....

My husband doesn't like pictures of the kids on the internet, but he didn't say anything about us:)

On My Kitchen Counter

I love this area of my kitchen counter. I know that a Kitchen Aid mixer is very utilitarian and not necessarily decorative, but I love the way it looks. Mine happens to be really old. Our elderly neighbor was breaking up house keeping to go into a nursing home and I bought it at her auction. She told me that she had baked many good cookies with that mixer.

*A white ceramic pumpkin purchased this year from Target.
*A "depression-glass green" dish.
*Mums from a friend.
*A Mary Engelbeit calendar page framed in a silver frame by my oldest daughter for me for Christmas that says, "Home is where the Heart is."

In honor of Thanksgiving, we had dinner at the Mayflower the next night. How many of you can say that?? ;)
