I can’t believe it’s here, but it is. Christmas is in the air and in the house! Our tree is sporting its big, fun, colorful lights this year – topped off with lots of tinsel. You just can’t look at this tree and not smile. For me, it not only brings back memories from my own childhood, but from my children’s as well. When my daughters were still very young, I began collecting dated ornaments for all three of us each year. So when they have their own families with their own Christmas trees, we will all have many of the same ornaments reminding us of our past Christmases together. There’s nothing like nostalgia during the holidays!
Even the gift-wrapping is old-fashioned. Brown paper and colorful yarns pretty up all the packages under the tree. Simple, quick and inexpensive. Can’t beat that during the holidays! The gift tags are handmade from card stock and personalized with stickers.
From the Russell home to your home . . . Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
