Christmas 2018

Just a few pics of our decorations, special effects with the lights and a couple pics from Christmas Day.  I wasn't in the mood to go all out this year with decorations.  It's so much work to put up and take down!  Instead of hanging that ornament wreath I made a few years ago, I put the lit ball in the center on the floor.

Through a marble

Lisa made those awesome scrabble letter ornaments for us!  I just LOVE them!!!!!

We got that lit wooden arch decoration at Epcot, in 'Germany'.  I wanted one ever since I saw them in Gettysburg last summer but those were out of our price range.  This was much more reasonably priced.

Our 2018 ornament from the Sandwich Glass Museum.

Christmas Corner

We did deli, munchies, prime rib, mashed taters and green beans for Christmas Day.

My inlaws joined us this year.  It was a little crowded but very mellow/peaceful and great to have the kids as well.

Munchies!  My fave!

This was a project I saw making the rounds on Facebook so I decided to make one. 

I hope everyone enjoyed their day as much as we did!


  1. Looks like plenty of Christmas cheer and a fun veggie tree.

    1. Russell told me that his parents had a really great time here with us and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Normally they go to our niece's house and there are lots of kids running around! lol

  2. Hey JoJo,

    What an awesomely, Christmassy day you folks had. It sure does look like you all had an amazing day.

    Thanks for sharing those very nice photos.


    1. Thanks Gary! I hope your Christmas was a mellow as ours was. Of course it was a lot of work in the kitchen (esp. clean up) but the kids and my inlaws were happy so it's all worth it.

  3. Such a beautiful decoration!! Merry Christmas .
