menu plan monday ~ november 10, 2014

We had a fun weekend. Genny came to help with Christmas decorating. We put up the tree in the craft room that holds my Christmas Notebook exchange ornaments. We also finished the glass tree in the upstairs guest room. Genny started on the chalkboard tree.

Here’s the chalkboard tree in 2012.


And 2013.

12 Days of Christmas

This year, we’re doing a nativity theme. I drew patterns and Genny worked on the angels.

The twins and their family came Sunday afternoon for lunch and a birthday celebration. The girls turned seven last week. Growing faster all the time!

My daughter-in-law put up the nativity. She also cleaned out my fridge, which is a huge gift in my book. One of my least favorite housekeeping chores.

    I love the chalk board Christma tree. I’m not sure I could draw anything as beautiful as yours though! Will ask one of my girlfriends to try and send you a picture if we’re successfull!
