Happy MOnday!

A new week!  and it will surely be better then the last!  my house is all decorated now.  I think Im finished..
heres a few pics from my kitchen, 
theres more.. but saving for another day...
I havent done anything outside, I did do the porch.. but I have garlands and lights that go out front.   maybe I'll get to them, maybe I wont...  the pumpkins are still out there!  probably frozen!  its pretty cold out.
I got the tree decorated friday night.  it makes such a difference and makes the house so much more christmasy and cozy.   I love to decorate.  I love lots of cute stuff!  the more the merrier! 
(ha! like you didnt already know that!)  
Im afraid that someday I'm going to have to hire someone to do it for me!  hopefully not for  a very very long time.  
I've taken to looking at pictures from previous years so I can remember where to put things..    I just posted on face book this morning.. "so much stuff.. so little memory!"  LOL!
I have a confession to make.... I have not made my elves for my elf challenge yet.  well, I made their heads, feet and hands.. but nothing else.. so I'm extending the challenge until I finish them.. so anyone who wanted too and hasnt.. theres still time.  I'm shooting for this saturday now..  
Oh my gosh.. I love christmas, but its coming so fast now!  I need to get with it!  I am so not on top of it this year... what happen to me?  maybe old age setting in!   after christmas, Im going on a major take care of myself kick..   Im a mess! lol! 
ok, lovies.. I took a ton of pics, but not gonna post them all today.. theres still plenty of blogging days before christmas.
have a great monday!  
OH!!!  and thank you all for the kind sweet comments you left me on my last whiney post... we all gotta have those days now and then (or weeks!)   so nice to have such sweet pals to encourage me on!
big hugs and love to you all!

You have the coziest kitchen, Viv. I'd love to be in there sharing a cup of tea. I'm running late to work but I just had to sneak in a few more peeks at all your lovely pictures. Have a wonderful week ahead. Christmas hugs!

Your kitchen looks so cozy and festive, Vivian! Yes, it has come up fast this year. I went simple and am glad I did. The weather is not helping me get things done either.

Your kitchen looks so homey and festive. I like lights best of all and this year I have them throughout the house as well as outside. I have some other things, but I do love me some lights. Happy Monday to you.


A Christmas tree does make our homes feel cozy and warm. I'm enjoying seeing all your Christmas decor! How fun to do the kitchen window!
Merry Christmas!
