Can You believe 2017 is almost over??

Summer has come and gone, fall is here and soon winter.  We have been doing some Christmas shopping and trying to get some things taken care of.  While looking at my lists of things I wanted to make I found some great ornaments to make.  I forgot all about them now my plan is to make some to decorate the house with fabric ornaments of some kind.  My tree is decorated with ornaments the kids and grandkids have made over the years.  These are so much fun to look at and discuss as we hang them.   The Granddaughters decorate the tree the day after Thanksgiving, with hot cocoa, and cookies.  Lots of laughing.  This year we will be putting it up a little later.  Hubby and I will be going to Texas to spend Thanksgiving with my siblings.  This will be a week of Red Neck good times.  Fish fries(I hope), domino and poker night, bonfire, lots of good food, visiting long time friends and family.

Here are a few sites for Christmas Ornaments if you need some ideas.                                     https://www.facebook.com/theornamentgirl/                                                                                    http://quiltingdigest.com/prairie-points-make-beautiful-star-ornaments/

What are some of your traditions for the fall and winter?

Do you decorate your house for this time of year?

My tree are starting to turn pretty colors and leaves fall.  I have a large oak tree in the front yard and the oak mites have been terrible.  When they attack you that spot itches like crazy.  But even with these little insects fall is a beautiful time.  Enjoy your days.

  1. When we were young, we never put up the Christmas tree and decorations until December 14. Over the last couple of years, I’ve been doing it the day after Thanksgiving. It is so much work, why not enjoy it for a whole month? The roommate insists that it all come down on 12/26.
