    The minute I saw the boxes of Shiney Bright ornaments, my mind went back to the Christmas trees of my childhood! How well I remember those ornaments and how carefully they were stored back in the same boxes, year after year, as the paper cradling them grew yellow. They were very delicate and your finger could go through them quite easily, but they were beautiful. Thanks for bring back those memories. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    Such lovely pictures! I especially loved the one with the theater sign that had the word “CHRIST” in capital letters in “Christmas”!! I am hoping it was a recent photo and they are still proclaiming our dear Lord in this way. :) Thank you for such a beautiful post! Visiting today for the first time from Stephanie’s link-up. God bless you and yours with a wonderful Christmas season!! :)

    Oh my, the pumpkin snowman is just too cute! I never would have thought of using white pumpkins….such cleverness :)

    And a burger with fries is just the thing to enjoy after turkey. In fact, we enjoy that lasy night {{smies}} Happy day to you, my friend!
