I do have my Christmas things up and around. Jess is going to put some lights outside on the little front porch. We put the Carolers statue out there on the step. But one of my neighbors alerted me that if I put my lawn decorations out there, considering we don't have any fencing at this house we rent, he said they'd probably not be there in the morning. So my Pink Flamingos, my blow up 6 ft Nutcracker and other trees, and blow up doggie are staying in storage. The Moral character of a lot of people these days is really sad!
But here's what I have in the house:
Jess has a village that he hasn't been able to display for 7 years now. So it was put here in my house and I got him a couple of early presents, (another house and a train). This picture was before the Train was included. Different now.
I collect Santa's for my fireplace (which I hadn't been able to since 2015) Most of the Santas are on the fire place.
The Wreath is a pale blue to match thne ornaments on the Tree.
We moved the book case out of the corner so we could put the tree in there. The Santa that holds the Sax plays music, whick I made a video of. I'll see if I can get it loaded here.
As you can see, it's quite an extensive village.
We're almost ready for the Train. It's there under the tree but I'll put another pic with a better view.
Most of the buildings have lights in them. Not lit now, till we put new batteries in them.
I have already taken the ribbons off the tree. didn't like them after all.
This Santa is standing watch over the Phone charging station and the plants behind him.
The train goes around under the tree and a lot of the buildings have joined the train under the tree. Guess I need to take better pictures. I really like the lights in the village.
Well this is long enough for today. I'll take better pictures and share them tomorrow. But I'd also like to share a few scrapbook pages.
A good friend has become a Grandmother again. This is Max.

Another Grandmother sent a picture.
My little puppy chooses to nap in front of the Heater.
My youngest Grand child. Did us proud, first one to finish her college. I'm still doing college classes but not for credits...just for my edification. Don't know what I'd do with a BA at my age!
Time to call it a day.
