Blossom and Bob-the-dog trim the tree....

Yesterday was the day Blossom trimmed our tree, along with her fluffy helper, Bob-the-dog....

Tradition in our house is to watch Christmas movies while the decorations are placed through the house, so a double screening of "Christmas with the Kranks" and "Elf" ensued, while Blossom sorted through tinsel, baubles, and lights.

Various Christmas items were sat on shelving and hung on walls...

...even Bob-the-dog was dressed for the fun.

Don't you love my reindeer coffee mugs!? I sipped cappucinno from one while Blossom prettied the tree.

I am being a good girl and continuing to rest my hand and shoulder today, but praying tomorrow will be the day to baste Blossom's quilt.

Happy Advent!

  12. Too Sweet! Your helpers did an incredible job. There are so many handcrafted pretties to look at. Take your time basting that quilt. If you must get started on it, just do a little at a time. Don't push. -karen
