I love everyone's decorations, they're so beautiful! I especially like the maltese/doggie ornaments I've seen . I'll have to get some of those! or for next year at least.

Here's the nativity my mom did:

I had to blur out the mess in the back haha.

The tree at our house:

Those lines appeared on my phone every time I pointed it at the tree, couldn't get rid of them!

and here's the tree at my BF's house:

When we finished putting it up, Cici layed down in her "froggy" pose (that's what we call it when she lays down on her stomach and spreads her legs out to the sides like a frog swimming) infront of the tree just staring at it, it was so cute! But I was too slow to get the camera .

There's always a good movie out on Christmas. At least I won't have the hassle of putting up all the decorations.
You are so right on. Family structures change when kids start having their own families and our traditions are over. Since here it's only my daughter and her family and her husband's parents, we try to keep it like we used to. But I see what's happening to what is left of our family in France and it is just not the same.

I always have trouble to get a nice picture of the tree.

I made that ceramic Christmas tree years and years ago.

We had to block of the Christmas tree with gifts because our little stinker kept licking the branches of the tree. This is the other side.

My kids are grown, and on their own, but NO ONE ever leaves, in fact they bring more with then...grandkids, friends, in laws, my parents, brothers, and their family! I am thankful for my family, and that they feel comfortable and welcome here! Sure is a lot of work!!! One Christmas I'll surprise everyone and hubby and I will leave on a much earned vacation at Christmas time!!! They wouldn't know what to do????

All of your trees and decorations are gorgeous! I have looked at the pictures more then once ... everything is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing!

This year we cannot decorate much. I tried to find some pictures from last year and only found a few showing the front of the house ... and, then the tree inside was not up or decorated yet. And, more blue lights were added onto more bushes after these pictures were taken. Our deck out back is usually light up with colored lights ... it's nice to eat dinner and look at the colorful and warm lights as we eat. But, because everything is so up in the air for now, we are holding off until next year to decorate like we usually do.

I have ordered some Christmas floral arrangements (I have the Kinkaid floral arrangements with the houses/ churches every year) And, I will light up a little ceramic Christmas tree this year so that Snowball has a few gifts under a little tree. And, we have a Creche that I will place on a little round table this year ... since we can't have a big tree to place it under. I love the Creche ... the pieces are all hand made from Italy ... I treasure it.

So, here are some of the Christmas lights that were outside from Christmas past. I wish I could find all the other pictures with the tree and inside decorations. Oh, well. I am sure I'll find them after Christmas.

This year you can see what adorns the front of our house. Should we try and string lights on the tarp and try and make a waterfall?!

Wow that is so great! I hope things will be like that for me in the future, it's always so nice to have the family together. I know for sure I won't be leaving my mom! I'll either take everyone to her house or invite everyone to mine .
And I can just imagine how busy you must be during the holidays! But it sounds like a wonderful experience anyways.

My grandmother's nativity set - she was born in 1894 and got it from the woman who raised her and her sister after their mother died. I have no idea how old this is.



My German Christmas Pyramid - the table covering it's on is also from Germany.



And my little tree.
