Sunday - Red and Green

Well today was another busy day of decorating the house and preparing for Christmas. With today's photo week theme being Red and Green I tried to capture our Christmas tree with the red skirt under it. So we finally got our tree up, it is about time right.

A new added decoration this year is the two wreaths I bought for our double front doors. I really like just a simple wreath and I was excited to find hooks already in the door from a previous own.

Photo Week - Saturday

So today's theme was sparkle and spirit which I am pretty excited about. I got the notice late though so I ran around to capture the things I could. I had the perfect opportunity earlier today when my husband pulled out the Christmas lights to put up. He seemed to be very mesmerized by a wad of lights plugged in. It was pretty cool and I wish now that I had taken a picture. Oh well, here is what I came up with instead. I spent the majority of the day baking cookies for the family and friends so here they are. More to come tomorrow. This is the first time I made these candy cane cookies and they did not come out the way I would like. They are fatter than I would like however they taste great and that is more important anyway right.

Since I couldn't get a picture of the lights balled up I thought I would take a picture of them up. Dale and Alex spent most of the day working on the roof and I must say it looks pretty good. I like the fact that they were out of the house too so they would not eat all the cookies as I baked them.
