Lyrical Christmas 2014

I started unboxing the Christmas decorations around mid-November this year and fell back in love with my Silver Bells sign. I love Christmas music. Like, a lot. I'm sure I've mentioned that a time or two. In fact, the first song Noah sang was Jingle Bells and it's probably no surprise that Noelle knows all the words to The First Noel. With Christmas music filling the house I decided to add a couple more pieces with Christmas lyrics. One of my favorite lines is from Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. "Let your heart be light."

I painted over Noah's train sign for his third birthday party to create this piece.

I only added a few new details to our tree this year, including a few plaid pieces and branch stars.

Someone once told me to "put anything you want on your tree." There's no rules. The plaid ribbon in the tree is actually two table runners. I also stuck in deer antlers and an american flag.

The Silver Bells sign was added to the living room gallery wall.

This weekend we had our annual small town Christmas parade. My dad made a bucket train to pull around the grandkids.

The kids had the best time riding around blowing bubbles and waving at friends.
