The Christmas Shelf, Christmas Movies, Thankful Thursday

The Christmas Shelf
I keep low key Christmas decorations
I don’t do a tree but some decorations. This year I decided to start a tradition of a holiday shelf.
This season is Christmas. I have a nativity set some green tinsel, eclectic candle and a Christmas card or two. It makes the house fill with the holiday spirit, but it’s not overwhelming its easy to put up and put down. It’s great for people with small space or on a budget.

I started with a Halloween shelf but I couldn’t wait till Halloween was over to start the Christmas Shelf.

Christmas movies
I watch movies like the Muppet Christmas Carol which is one of the better Christmas Carol productions. '
While it is wacky. The music is beautiful and it actually keeps some of the prose from the original story.

Thankful Thursday
I am thankful for my family
I am thankful for the love of people
I am thankful for hugs
I am thankful for christ
I am thankful for Christmas

What are you giving for christmas?
I might buy some stocking stuffers in the next few days.
I am making a small pre cgristmas art today.

My mother in law sent the family virtual advent calendar.
It unlocks a new animation each day. It’s a lot more fun than the chocolate advent calenders I’d get as a kid because I could never wait.

There was no real trick or treating this year we tried but it didn’t work out. Luckily we already went to a party a few weeks ago. We als had some candy for the day. I made rice crispy treats.
I need to start decorating for Christmas in a few days. I am a minimalist decorator but there will be few more items than usual.

Christmas trees. I did the first year or two that I was married. But trees are huge and cumbersome. If I get a fake tree it’s got to table top size maybe aluminum or a real bonzi.

Makes me feel like Baking

A few weeks ago I made a layer cake, homemade candy and now I want to make chocolate covered rice Cereal treats. I also want a salad. I am funny like that.
