Gosh, what a weekend! First of all, with the tragic news of the school shooting in CT, it has made me so sad to see the news coverage of that terrible event! I can't escape it and it's hurts my soul to see and hear about the loss of life that happened last Friday. I am unable to fully understand how anyone can take the lives of such young children like that. It certainly makes me nervous about the safety of my own child still in elementary school himself!
We did end up taking advantage of Saturday to get some much needed Christmas shopping done though. I've been busy wrapping presents and stashing them under the tree.
I wanted to share some of the outside Christmas decorations on our home. I wanted to go with an old fashioned farmhouse feel to my decor this year. More greenery and red and white stripes. I threw in some burlap and galvanized tubs too. Here is what I came up with.
The small trees, at the bottom of the steps, have white lights on them at night.
The candy canes light up at night too.
Some night time shots.........
Now, I've got a busy week ahead next week. It's my son's last week of school before Christmas break. We will attend a Christmas breakfast with his class and a game exchange. I've got some Christmas cookies to bake and need to finish up some more shopping. Whew! I probably won't be blogging as much next week as a result. It's getting down to "crunch time".
Hope you all have a great week ahead!
Thanks for stopping by!
