decorating progress

We have been very busy! Yesterday, my DIL Julie and my sister Genny decorated the nativity tree in the library.

The Three Kings’ Tree, also in the library, in the corner by the book shelves is done and looks great. It’s hard to spot the three king figurines in this picture, but I liked the way the lights reflected off the wall.

The living room is done, except for a couple of minor details. These are my oldest daughter’s baby shoes on the family tree.

The dining room is a different story!

We are just getting started in there today. I am in the process of putting new lights on the snow tree. When that is done, we’ll put the garland on, and the snowball ornaments. Then we’ll snow the tree. More about that soon!

The snow tree will sit on an old round oak table. The small tree on the left will go on top the corner cupboard. The eight boxes are all decorations for the dining room.

I wanted to check in. We’ve been so busy that I haven’t taken time to update here. My sister is staying through tomorrow to help decorate and we plan to accomplish a lot more.

We bought a sofa for the living room and it may be delivered tomorrow. Because of that, we switched two rugs, but the result is worth it. They look great and the one we moved to the living room looks just right with the sofa pillow I brought home for a color check in the room.

I’ll post more tomorrow. ~~Rhonda 🙂

    The trees look beautiful Rhonda! I love the reflection of the lights on the wall too!

    I am wanting to do an ancestry/family tree after seeing yours and the one that Paula over at did.

    I just don’t have that many “family” items. I never really saw my grandparents. (Only my maternal grandmother a few times.) So, I don’t really have anything that belonged to any of them.

    I may have to think about this one some more!
