I had a very fun day yesterday. My niece, Jess, and her fiance came to the cities to visit Steve's sister for the weekend. Mark & I were planning to meet Jess & Steve and my sister and her SO (Mary & Jim) for lunch today. Mary is babysitting with her granddaughter, Kajia, this weekend - so that was going to be very special! But I got a little bonus - my other sister (Jess' mom, Patti), came up with them and stayed at Mary's for the weekend. So I went over there yesterday and had some major sister bonding time PLUS baby girl time. What a perfect day!! And I get to see everyone for lunch in a couple hours. Lovely weekend!
Here are a few more photos of Christmas decorations. My piano sits in this little nook of the fireplace room - next to the stairway. This is a photo taken at night with the tree and garland lit. The tree is rustic and small - and I put only snowmen ornaments on it. After I started, I realized I don't really have that many snowmen ornaments (LOL), so I cut up some snowman ribbon and put that on the tree. It looks kind of like banners - a little weird!! But it's supposed to be a fun tree, so it's okay! (Look closely at the guy in the red hat - he has a snowball in his hand ready to throw!)
