However, this year, I had a strong desire to GO (real) GREEN....
The house smells wonderful!
|Gaudete Sunday...testing the lights!|
But I could not part ways from Old Faithful just yet, so I moved her to another welcoming location...
|Part of another GIRLS-NIGHT-IN was to decorate the Christmas Trees and bake cookies...|
and do nails...
I also downsized on my family's Jesse Tree tree from
|The present Jesse Tree lights up in the evening with a four hour timer. |
I LOVE this new Jesse Tree!
Compact, pretty, functional, clean, and the glowing lights in the evening
are DELIGHTFUL and cozy.
The family Advent Wreath from years past also joined in the GO (real) GREEN bandwagon...(after hubby came home with this very nice surprise).
We have been busy, busy, busy...and after my mother was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital's ICU...things have not slowed down. But all is well, and the preparation for the coming of the Christ Child shall not be hindered....
Gaudete Sunday came and went, with great hope and joy!
Now, we wait...
And prepare some more...
