Hello sweet friends !
So ! Dear daughter Alexandra and her family are going back to Spain this Monday coming. They came for a two month visit, back in February ! The World shut down caught up to them here, therefore, they've been here for 9 months !
We were lucky to be together for such an unusual situation the world had to endure and in some cases, still are.
They contracted COVID too, and we did from them, as well.
We are all fine thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ and all the prayers from everyone.
So... we gathered around our new snowed flocked tree for gifts and things, specially for the little girls; Maxima 5 and Leonela 1.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas Season.
I'm so happy with my new 'snowy flocked' Christmas tree.' Always wanted to buy one, but never did.
This was my chance !
It's still a 'Memory Tree,' with ornaments from our first Xmas tree, (back in 1975) gifts from family members, (not with us anymore), than my little daughters, pictures of the grand-babies, etc.
I am very traditional come Xmas decor. You can see here what I mean.
The Living room.
It's not that I go 'all the way' with the decor, but this is enough for me.
Our Den all decked out !
In the mantel our singing Carolers and my darling St. Patrick Cathedral. I realized I had no batteries for it, oh well..)
At your right my St. Patrick's Cathedral isn't with the lights on, cause while taking the pics I realized the batteries weren't working anymore and didn't have new replacements.
At your right it leads to the formal dining room, my fav place in the house.
That tour will be posted next week, otherwise you will have so many pics to be bored to death !
The gifts here, under the snowy Christmas tree, were for the two little girls, sort of an early Christmas fun; because they're going back to Spain.
My Nutcracker collection.
I have ten now and it all started several years ago when my sweet mom gave me two for my birthday which is in October.
I always loved receiving Xmas things for my birthday, like the German three tier, wooden Pyramid hubby gifted me many years ago and the grands love to see it go around with the tea candles lighted.
The antique French foyer table is perfect for welcoming everyone for the Christmas Holidays, or any time as well.
We will come to the dining area next time. To many pics !
Another view to the living room and foyer. I placed the tree there because it sure makes us enjoy from all over the house we might be at.
Thank you for your kind comments, you always make my day !
Thanking the gracious hostesses for their great parties.
