My two oldest men took on the task of putting up Christmas lights a couple of nights ago. My youngest decided it was too cold and went back inside with his mama.
Our house is all prettied up now – good job, boys!
We set up the tree a few nights ago, with my oldest son being the main decorator. I should have gotten some video. “I can’t find the perfect place for this one, mama. It just doesn’t make sense here.” Mm-hmm. I helpfully said, “just put it down and leave it for later.” He glared at me.
I think he did a wonderful job:
The little village underneath has been collected over the years and adds a sweet touch. My boy took these pics:
We like to turn the tree on and enjoy the sparklies. I light my candles and sip a bit of cocoa — my boys do not like hot chocolate for now — and we snuggle in the cold California evenings. Laugh if you will, but it is 45 degrees out there as I am typing and we do not turn the heater on in the evenings.
I am waiting for a couple of things before I show you the mantel – but for now I hope you enjoyed seeing our outside lights and our tree. It’s fake, because the cats can’t help themselves.

Good post! Our cats are always laying under the tree and batting at ornaments, I am grateful every day that the tree remains standing 🙂
My cats played with the ornaments the first year and then figured out no food would come out, so they’ve given up 😀
All pretty and sparkly!
That’s how I like my life, chicka 😀 pretty and sparkly, ha ha.
