Since standing on my leg is not in the doctors orders, two legged Christmas activities are limited this year. There has never been a year without decorations so decorate I did. It certainly is scaled down but there definitely is some Christmas cheer in the house.

I have always decorated a seven foot tree as a western tree. It often took 6 hours or more to get it perfect. Well for sure, that isn't happening this year, so I decided to transition to a smaller tree.
Several years ago, for Christmas I put together Christmas sleighs for my Mother, Auntie, and daughter who had a house at the time. Each tree/sleigh had a different theme and was chosen by the interests of the individual. My mother collected Noah's arks so her tree featured Noah's Ark collectables, my daughter Angels, and my Aunties features Teddy Bears. When my Mom passed away I kept her sleigh and now it is time to make it fit me.

So I added one of my Santa figurines at the bottom and ornaments from my big tree and presto my tree/sleigh has become my own and still holds sweet holiday memories.
Well, that's it for decorating the house...but the advantage is when Christmas is over the put-away will be just as quick and with a little Christmas luck I will be able to return to getting ready for my new life!
