Hubby Neal stated, "This is the year of minimal decoration . . ."
. . . and he was right. Cards are not arranged for display,
Jackie I's Surfin' Santa from 2017 did make an appearance . . .
. . . and the temps finally were cold enough for a fire in the fireplace,
One of the few moments that Gipsy is lying still . . .
Would you STOP with the flashie-thingie; I'm trying to enjoy the fire.
I did put out one small tree . . .
. . . the Small Bear Tree . . .
Then, the wall tree came out of hiding; of course,
. . . but we just didn't have the energy to decorate it.
UNTIL a package arrived, from Jackie I, with these lovely ornaments . . .
These will, of course, stay in the display cabinet all year!
Then Neal admitted that he'd bought a toy for each of the girls for Christmas . . .
. . . so he stuck those in the tree, too!
