Christmas Favorites

I have been meaning to include these photos for our Christmas memories, and I realize that it is all over until the end of the year comes again, but I must post, as these things truly make me so happy inside.

I absolutely love poinsettias. The bright red and the green leaves just exude(that's a word, right?) Christmas for me. I am so glad that Lance likes them too. He plants them everywhere for me every year. I smile each time I approach our home because they just make me happy. Thanks, Lance!

This is the approach to our front entry.

I thought the dew drops looked so pretty, had to take a close up shot.

I also loved the little rosemary topiaries shaped like Christmas trees that we found at Home Depot. I love the smell, and even though Lance cannot stand the fragrance, he got them for me. Is that not true love?

And my honey is also great about putting up our lights. These make me so happy too! I just love Christmastime and we are all looking forward to next year when we can do it all again!

I think the front yard was still in plan mode when we left, and it looks AWESOME! IT's so fun to reflect on those Christmas favorites...you have to preserve them! Build A Bear looks like it was a blast too! Great idea!
