Welcome to the "Pretty Little Christmas" Blog Party hosted by Heather at Pretty Petals . Thank you to our hostess!
I love a white Canadian Christmas with tall Pines and Spruce trees dusted in snow. It has a very calming effect I think . . . against all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. This is the view from our family room.
Please come in . . . and make yourself at home . . .
I attended a wonderful Cookie Exchange Party recently. I am already for our family Christmas in Toronto this weekend. I have put a tray of goodies in the freezer to make sure they make it until Saturday, LOL. Too many cookies monsters in our house.
Our Christmas Tree is red and white (Very Canadian I suppose) with Angels, Doves and Old World Santas.
I like the transparent ornaments that twinkle at night.
I think my favorite ornaments are my Glass Ballerinas. I took Ballet for many years when I was young. These Sugar Plum dancers like to spin around and around. They look like they are dancing on the tree.
This little gal is just adorable . . . love her glitter and tiny birds nest.
This Santa makes all the little children smile. He is a wreath that hangs low on the door so the small ones can say hello to him.
I like this short little Santa too . . . he makes me smile : )
This is why we don't do our own family portrait with a timer any more. This was way back in Christmas 2000. I think we had over 100 images and not one where we all smiled and behaved at the same time, LOL. This was our dog's first Christmas . . .and my son wasn't helping with the "sit" command very much at all (note the grip on my dog's tail). Well at least the girls are smiling nicely. Thanks to my Aunt Brenda for making such a wonderful tree ornament : )
p.s. we used this picture as our Christmas card that year.
Wishing you all a Safe and Merry Christmas with Family and Friends !
