Oh, boy! Well, we pulled out all the Christmas decorations today. LOL, decorating at our house is like an Olympic event.  It usually takes a few days to complete. But we got a good start today. It was awesome. We hang artificial pine garlands around the mirror over the fireplace mantle and all around the living room windows, then they are covered in lights and laden with tons of ornaments. For many years, we had real trees, but last year we got an artificial upside-down Christmas tree that hangs from the ceiling. That also gets trimmed to the gills with lights and ornaments.

My husband took the day off and I  made cinnamon rolls for breakfast as we began the festivities.  Later, he put a turkey in the oven and cooked up all the fixings for dinner. After hours of decorating, we tore into the meal with relish.  Now I can barely lift my arms after all that overhead work, so the rest will have to wait until tomorrow. But it’s already looking so nice. There’s nothing like the sparkle and gleam of holiday decorations to fill one’s heart to bursting with Christmas cheer. 🙂

Aria Helps With The Holiday Decorating

Today’s model is Dynamite Girls Electro Pop Aria. She is wearing a dress & shoes borrowed from Barbie and over-the-knee socks of unknown origins. She’s standing on a ladder that I found at a church sale. The photo was taken in my living room in the front windows, among the Christmas decorations. I think I took this picture while using the camera’s “night photography” mode, but I’m not sure. I was messing around with the camera’s functions, trying to show the glow of  the lights while still using the flash to illuminate Aria.
