Christmas Decorations

We've been slow in getting our Christmas decorations up this year. I enjoy decorating for fall a lot and took those things down after Thanksgiving but until today, we really didn't have much up for Christmas. That had to change, though, because tiny granddaughter, Avery, is coming over on Tuesday, and Pawpaw and Mawmaw have to dazzle her! I love to see little kids' eyes when they see holiday lights!
The floating shelves are holding some of my collection of gingerbread men, women, and children. Many others are in the kitchen. I also have several made of fabrics, including a 2-foot tall gingerbread girl with long braids that sings when you squeeze her hand. I hope Avery likes her!
I wanted my friend Debi in Texas to see that I like snowmen, too! These are some of my snowmen on the mantle. The old gun is up there all of the time, as is the clock. The gun is from my husband's family and is very old.
The tree is up and 12-inch lighted snowflakes are hanging in the front windows. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Woo hoo snowmen AND gingerbread men too! Your decorations are beautiful. I have to admit the only decorations I have up are the snowmen wallhanging you gave me and one wreath on the door.

Very pretty Sheryl. I am slow in my Christmas decorating this year too. So far, the candles are out, the tablerunner, and the wreath. :o)
