Changed up our decorations a little this year, the sunroom has the old-time tree and Christmas town on the mantle.
The church is the centerpiece raised high and then we have a fire station for my hubby-retired fire/medic. There's a train station, an Inn, and a seaside home alongside. The banner I purchased this year at Target and the fire in the bottom is a lighted jewelry tree I made years ago.
I used an old lunch box to create a little vignette next to the mantel and a few extra touches. The Christmas doll was my sister Katy's.

Candy Cane Anyone??
Getting ready for two of our four choir performances tonight - so excited been practicing since September.
This is our first dress rehearsal for our 200 voice Christmas Choir concert this coming weekend at our church. I'm on the 3rd row-you could never pick me out.
We have one more dress rehearsal Thursday night with the full band. Lots of trumpets and horns!!!
This weekend the men will be in black suits and the ladies in gold sequin top and black dress pants. We have 13 songs and have been in rehearsal since September.
Just a few little quirks in a couple songs to iron out and we will be in UINSON proclaiming the birth of the Christ Child.!!!!!!
One of my greatest pleasures is taking a name from an Angel Tree or orphanage and buying them Christmas gifts. This year our church is partnering with "Operation Christmas Child" with the Samaritan's Purse organization.
We have many boxes filled for girls and boys from the ages of 2-14.They are distributed world wide. The organization is headed up by Franklin Graham.
My grandkids are all teens now so it was fun to buy little ones gifts--I'd love to see their faces when they get their boxes.
