It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I really miss having a Christmas tree, and having the whole house decorated for the season. When I was younger, I didn't even realize it, but I'd get so excited decorating the tree, and helping decorate the house. Nathan has never really cared much for decorations, so we have never had any. Now that we have Raia, we both think it will be neat to decorate the house with her, and have fun decorating the tree, etc.

I was bound and determined to get the little table top Christmas tree my Mom got for me last year up and decorated again this year, along with one of our nativity sets. We recently got a nice little entertainment center from my friend Rita, and I thought that would be the perfect place for both! Some might think it would be a little cluttered for all of that, but I have a dog who eats anything!! I have to have it high enough that he can't reach! (Just the other day he jumped up on the counter and snagged my oven mitt, and proceeded to eat the entire lining, leaving me only the outer green sheath :( Um, Gibson, I can't get food out of the oven with that, buddy! Good thing he's cute!)

So anyway, I started with the tabletop tree :) I don't have many ornaments for it; it doesn't really need many. Nathan's mom got Raia a set of 4 Winnie the Pooh ornaments, and I have several others from her first year on there as well. I *tried* to let her hang her first ornament, but she wanted nothing to do with that, LOL! Here is the finished product!

Onto the nativity set! We have two nativity sets now, and both are so cute, I will either have to display them in different parts of the house each year, or, alternate. This was a gift from my sweet sister-in-law, Suzanna a year or two ago. Family and friends reading this ~ you all know that Nathan is very much a cat person, so I think this nativity set was more for him than for me, hahaha, but I just LOVE it!!!

Here is my favorite one:

Aren't they cute?? I think Gibson wants to eat them. LOL!

You know how all this time i have been griping about our camera? Well, Nathan and I decided to get a new one for our birthdays to each share. It is a Canon Power Shot A1100 IS, and so far so good :)

One last thing before I go, I am thinking of starting a new blog just for my cakes. I have all of my cake pictures on facebook right now, and I'd like to keep that just for friends and family. I don't want to add potential customers just so they can peruse my cake album. I have done that twice already, and WOW, some people are just wacko! Glad there is a "Delete this person" button LOL! Anyway, to avoid all of that, I'd like to start a new blog just for my cakes. I am stuck on a blog name, though. Please help me think of a name!! Here is my latest cake, I just finished it tonight!

Kinda makes me want to play Twister LOL! That is NOT what I intended, though, oops! Hope no one else sees that! It is for a baby shower :)

Ok, thanks for checking in!
