Our Christmas Décor!

I started this post before Christmas, but never finished it. Since the 12 days of Christmas starts on Christmas day I am going to still post a few thing over the next week or so.


Here is our family room, empty from all our other décor, with our new real tree ready for our Christmas decorations. We have boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations in our attic, most of which we did not use this year.

We are wrapping the Christmas gifts that we put under the Christmas tree this year with brown packaging, wrapping paper. I like the simple and pretty look of these gifts.

Ordering New Reclining Sofas!

We ordered two reclining sofas the other day. Our couches we are  currently using in our family room, we bought new 20 years ago. We are addicted to reclining furniture!! BUT we are not fans of the recliner look. It took us a LONG time to find something we liked and in a fabric that was not too dark or too light. (We also have been saving for a long time.) We finally found this Lane Double Reclining Sofa that gives you the comfort of recliners but the look of a stationary sofa. This is the sofa we ordered, but not the fabric. This fabric is really a dark chocolate color. It looks lighter in this picture.

Our Thanksgiving Day!

We are definitely behind on posting this, but better late than never. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we have a lot to be thankful for. Most importantly we have a wonderful family and we are thankful for everyone of our children, our parents and our grandchildren. 
We had most of our family together this past Thanksgiving and we had a wonderful day.
We set up our food and drinks in the garage. This year the weather was nice so we didn’t need to heat it. You could read how to use epoxy paint to finish a garage floor here, and how we organize and use our garage here.
