First Days of the Holiday Season

The tree is up. With Christmas music playing in the background as I decorate the tree, I'm reminiscing of the ornaments from the past 40 years. It got kinda sappy  with all the reminiscing and stuff. 

It's time to pass the kids personal ornaments on to them. The Hallmark's "Baby's First Christmas" from the 80's presented to them by an aunt on each of their first Christmas. Each an angel ornament from their early daycare years Christmas party.  And a few other individual ornaments from their young days.

The stockings are hung, the candles are out, the Nativity scene is set, and one of my favorite Santa and Rudolph sets are ready. They're all old and have been used every Christmas for years. Rudolph's tail is broken. 

The first party of the Christmas season to attend was an engagement party. Though, not Christmas themed, it was beautiful for Trent and Natalie with tree lights, fire pit, good gumbo, family and friends. 

Me, Natalie, Trent. 

Shopping is 75% completed. Waiting on the UPS and FedEx guys to deliver. I got a little carried away sitting on the couch in pj's shopping online. I miss the hustle and bustle of the stores and malls during the holiday season. So will have to make a trip to the mall to get my hustle and bustle and last minute items.
