Last night before bed, I promised my girls pancakes in the event that our two-hour delay changed to a for real snow day. Guess who will be setting the dining room table in a few minutes.
The dining room is easy when it comes to Christmas decorating. Like all the rooms in our house, it's cozy, so there isn't a lot of room for a lot of stuff. I add faux greenery to the chandelier and keep fresh something-or-other (in this case winter berries plucked from our very own yard) on the table.
And look at this beauty! Talk about a punch of color. I made a couple of trips to our local nursery this weekend. Let's hope I can keep her healthy and pretty until the New Year.
These Santas are from my childhood. I remember seeing them scattered around our little 1940s Cape Cod, a home I miss to this day! Every year when I pull these out, I am reminded of my mother and how hard she tried to make the holidays festive for my brother and me.
More faux greenery and some berries. Like I said, simple.
