We will have a series of guests from 12/24 through 1/6. I am sure when they are all gone, it will be nice to have the house back to just the kitties, The Mister and myself. Right now, though, we can hardly wait to see everyone.
There are still several details to finish up before the morning, so I will leave you with a few of my favorite ornaments...
This cutie-pie ceramic mouse was made and given to me by DS's, Grandbebe's Mama when she was a young teen. It seems like it was only a few years ago, but it must have been 10 or 12. It always reminds me of the great big gatherings that we used to have when we all lived within a half day's drive.
This is an ornament that she made several Christmas's ago. It is prismacolor on copper and it hangs on the kitchen curtain rod most of the year. I just can't pack it away!
Her work is more sophisticated now, but I still love the plastic ball!
