Christmas is coming!

My last show is done for the year, we arrived home from our Thanksgiving weekend, and I have a list a mile long of things that must be done NOW!  I skipped it all today and set up the tree. I have added a new ornament every year for a long time, and have tried to stop it before they pull the tree down, but I couldn't resist this little fairy!  She was made by Connie Brooks, a fellow member of the Reading-Berks Guild of Craftsmen.  All ornaments on the tree are handmade, and it is like a trip down memory lane, since most of them were made by friends.  Some friends are from long ago, and some have passed away, which makes them all the more special.

  1. She is a beautiful fairy Louise! We were able to decorate our tree on Saturday, and have stories for each of our ornaments. This was the first year that Chloe actually wanted to help put ornaments up on the tree instead of just playing with them (although, that was what she ended up doing most of the time). Riley slept through most of it thank goodness. We put Riley friendly ornaments towards the bottom of the tree. Now I'm just waiting for Peeves to start her annual running laps around the bottom row of the tree. What fun times!
