It isn’t even Thanksgiving, but it is time to decorate the trees (yes, I said plural, as we put up several trees at our home). Thanksgiving comes later this year…the days until Christmas are few. It is a little over three weeks after Thanksgiving and then it will be Christmas! The pic above is the tree in our entry, combination living room, dining room and kitchen. It’s an open concept room with huge ceilings. We tried a smaller tree 3 years ago and it looked like a little dwarf tree in that room. Really kinda of funny.
So, the Captain got busy and brought the decorations and trees down from the attic….most houses in Florida do not have basements for storage…unless you call those areas where there are sink holes…oh dear, that isn’t even funny…sorry about that! 🙁
Back to the decorations…in fact, that is what I should be doing right now, I have finished the main tree and I am working on the blue room tree…see left…but I decided to take a break! We have carried on a tradition that includes a open house in early December. I make fudge, cookies, cakes, and finger foods (do you see a pattern here? Lots of “sweets” for grazing) We also make a few little “healthy” snacks, but very few as it is after all, the Holidays and a time for splurge. We probably ought to rethink that, as we all need to be healthy! Maybe next year! 🙂
I will post a few of the recipes and if you have any recipes for munching….please let me know.
We invite friends, neighbors and family to drop by our home at their convenience for some egg nog, wassail or just to catch up on the happenings of everyone! Which leads me back to my decorating. Guess I need to get back to it or I won’t be finished by Christmas! Break time over…just wanted to say hello!
Have any of you started decorating your trees?
