~Christmas Memories and Simple & Sweet Fridays #94~

I wanted to share with you all our Christmas decorations this year.
The house is ready for the kids to come home.
Lots of wonderful memories of the past.
 I made the stockings years ago when the children were little.
~Our dining room~ 
I love putting out all the different Christmas villages.

Stan always does a wonderful job on the lights outside.
Katie and Scott helped this year.

Love the green heart above the wreath,
 it was a nice surprise!

Of course, 
a snowman to greet everyone!
A Welcome Christmas sign I painted!
Wishing Everyone 
A Merry Christmas!

I also wanted to thank you all for your warmhearted comments
for my mother-in-law, Mary. It meant a lot to Stan and I.
Love You All.

  12. Hi Jody. What a great homecoming for all the kids. That is so great and everything looks so festive and beautiful. Nice job, with the lights, Stan. I love the snowman likenesses of your family and I would like to offer my condolences on the loss of Stan's mother. She looked like a very beautiful lady..My mom passed away just before Christmas too and I really decorated that year as a tribute to her. She loved the holidays and would have been so happy to see it all..Judy

  13. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at your home and everywhere Jody! The kids will love coming home. I missed last week, so sorry to hear about Stan's mother. Always hard losing them no matter how old! Thanks for hosting and have a very Merry Christmas!
