A little christmas cheer

Well it looks like the decorations are up at the Valentines residence,

 The  wreaths have been placed on the windows and the door
 Is that Santa on the roof already?

 Seems the tree is decorated, the presents are wrapped and Mama has put out her special nativity set!
Hey where is everyone?
 Ah here's grandpa Hart, seems he's found a quiet corner in the parlour to read.
 Victoria and Conrad steal a quiet moment in their bedroom to talk and freshen up.
 Nanny tries to get the baby to sleep while Elizabeth rocks her baby to sleep also.
Seems Sadie the cook has the kitchen back in order and is taking a well deserved coffee break
 Looks like Abigail is satisfied that all is in order in the house and she is going to join Sadie in the kitchen, she does wish however that nanny Annie would find a better place to leave that stroller!
 Seems even Grandma has found somewhere to have a moment to herself,  How about you? Do you need to give yourself a time out so to speak? Remember it's a season of joy, but we often run around like crazy and get so frazzled we don't enjoy this time the way we should! Sometimes just a few minutes of quiet can do wonders to restore our Spirit, Go ahead try it, I give you permission!

 It seems the Ideals are ready as well, they've decked the tree and wrapped the presents and it looks like sister is playing some nice Christmas carols while the family enjoys the decorations.
 It looks like the children have written their letter to Santa and left him a treat as well!
 The kids, with Mamas help of course , have made their traditional gingerbread house, seems only thing left to do is wait for the big day, the children are bursting with anticipation and Mama and Papa are bursting with appreciation for the real gift.... JESUS      Till next time, Love and blessings to all

Hello everyone,

         Well it's Christmas time again, my favorite time of the year and like many of you, I've spent this last week decking the halls, the walls, the floors, the doors, and everything else that didn't get out of the way, ha ha! I thought I would take a minute to share some pictures and to say I hope this is a season of great joy for you all. In all the hustle and bustle I hope you will all take a moment to remember Jesus is the reason for the season. Love and blessings to all,
 This tree has a somewhat Victorian flair and most of these ornaments I've had for a lot of years
this was a new creation with old stuff, it has roses, fairies and butterfly's and believe it or not my husband loves this tree

 my husband Jerry, bought me this new angel this year since my other one got broke a couple years ago
 We've had this nativity since our first Christmas 23 years ago, I love it
 another of my husbands favorites is this tree with fruit, doves and poinsettas

 a welcoming entrance
