This year there wasn't any snow for Christmas.
In fact, it was more brown than anything!
But we did get a bit of a dusting recently.
I can enjoy it a bit out our window...
it makes for a cozy winter day when it's sunny.
Although most of the decorations came down after the kings came,
I leave the evergreen garlands up for awhile.
I can't stand the nakedness of the house after Christmas celebrations.
So, leaving the greens up an extra week here allows me that extra winter garnish.
Oh, the stockings are still up in this photo.
Those did come down.
But the green will be stayin' in my birdie cage a bit longer.
It's all natural and winter-y inside,
and I love the greens with my grey walls.
I'm trying to stretch my Christmas cheer out into winter cheer since it's so gloomy outside.
And one last favorite old pic of mine here...
Baby when she was just a baby in my Frenchy chair, her first winter.
(And I'm thinkin' now, those chairs are THAT old already? I just got those).
