As the holidays approach, I enjoy setting out my decorations, a few at a time. These adorable snowmen adorn the top of our entertainment center in our livingroom. The snowman lamp in the center casts just enough light that we do not need any other lights on in the evening unless someone is reading. It makes a nice, cozy atmosphere along with the warmth and glow of the woodstove.
What little snow we had, has melted with the 40 degree days we have been having but more is predicted for sunday.....we are hoping for a little more out of this storm. It just doesn't feel like the holidays without snow! We are slowly working on decorating the "bird" tree but no photos to post just yet. Hopefully before the weekend is over.
Last night I had the pleasure of going on a date with my husband and we attended his company christmas party. I think it's very generous that they still have a christmas celebration and invite spouses to attend. Many companies cannot do that anymore. Tom filled in and did night chores for me as the party hours were from 4 to 7 which are perfect hours for folks who aren't used to going out :) It was held at the company office and we had a lovely time (Great job Allison! ) It was a catered affair and we both "dressed" for the occasion. My boys said I cleaned up pretty good. lol.....my only complaint before it was over - my feet hurt! Trading my muck shoes for semi high heels is definitely not in my future :)
We enjoyed the 40 minute ride home, chatting and looking at all the christmas lights that people have put up so far. We rarely have one on one time to catch up and reconnect - it was a nice way to end the evening.
Happy Friday everyone :)
