Finally......a decorated Christmas tree!

It took me three days to get it all done but finally the tree in our living room is decorated!
I spend a lot of time just looking at the ornaments and remembering when I made them, or one my mother or the kids made and ones that friends made....swaps......gifts......ones purchased on trips......it's like a walk down Memory Lane. :-) I just need to add the tree skirt and then some packages and I'll be all caught up!
I even did a little sewing today and Kaiser was most appreciative of it...............
I took a fleece remnant and hemmed the edges for a new blanket for him. He's sorta spoiled. Really likes to be covered up when he's sleeping. He looks so cute when he's sleeping that you'd never know how naughty he can be. :-)
And the weather today........well, it's going to be frightfully cold.....as in zero degrees for a start to the day and only getting into the teens for highs. Brrrr! I don't have to go out but my friends are coming for Bible Study today so they do have to go out. I have something rich and chocolaty for a treat and there will be hot coffee and tea so we will have a sweet and cozy afternoon.

Your tree looks beautiful and I do the same as you with the ornaments...Memory Lane BIG time!!! Kaiser looks cute. Our weather has been about 10 - 15 degrees COLDER than normal for this time of year. I hope the temps moderate soon!

Your tree turned out just beautiful. I see you have a fabulous ornament collection. Your doggie looks happy about his new snuggly blanket too.

Your tree is wonderful!! I was thinking what a lumpy looking quilt (you usually have them lying flat when you show them). Then I noticed Kaiser's head peeking out LOL.
