It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas

 Christmas greetings to you and yours.

The tree has been up and decorated since we first moved in!  Priorities!

A festive bouquet that arrived for my birthday last week is still look lovely with its Christmas colors.

And cookies have been baked and decorated.  Now to package them up to give to people who helped us make the move: the family that gave us the guest bed frame, the family that lent us the hand truck, and the neighbors who have welcomed us with wine and fresh baked bread.

I'm taking an extended vacation for the next two weeks to enjoy the holidays here in our new home.  See you in the New Year.

From what I recall of moving house you'll have plenty to occupy you in the next few weeks (if not months). Enjoy your first Christmas in the new house; the tree looks marvellous.

Perfect tree for a corner -- the advantage of artificial. Happy Holiday.

Such kind, kind people in this world. It makes me very happy that you have been welcomed like this. In light of the horrible news about our poor Governor and his family these days, your post absolutely showed me that this kind of behavior is not what we expect or see very often in NH people!
