Cozy Christmas Season

Most of the leaves have come and gone.
 
 
Just enjoying the last of the
Autumn foliage.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And this leaf flew in my car.
 
 
The rose garden is bare, except for the red berries falling on the ground.
 
 
 
 
Watching some good Hallmark Christmas shows.  I think Christmas Town is my favorite so far.  The father gives Lauren an angel many years ago, and the wing broke off on it.  It's a touching story.
 
 
 
It makes me think of my angel with the chipped wing, reminding me that even broken things are beautiful.

 
Well, I have to treat myself when out Christmas shopping.  ~cup at Pier 1. 
 
 
The neighbor's lights.
 
 
 
Birds of peace.
 
 
 
It's raining, it's pouring,
and Francesca is exploring!
 
 
This Starbuck's wreath was so creative
in the drive-through.

 Nel's tree.
Mia had the best time running through
the Christmas tree lot.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Even the trees are rejoicing,
it's Christmas!

Still leaves here too. Maybe will do some raking over vacation break.
Nel's tree looks beautiful.
I love all the decorations.
We are enjoying all the Hallmark shows too. I loved "Christmas town."
Looking forward to next weeks show with Jen Lilley.
Also A Very Brady Christmas.

Dear Sheri - it looks like you are still enjoying some lovely fall colors. I have not seen this Hallmark movie and I generally watch them - hope they do a rerun. Have a delightful week. Hugs!

It's such a fun time for the little ones! They get so much joy out of everything they do! Love your new mug and the cup wreath is cute! Of course the Fall leaves are all gorgeous. You have a lot more bright reds than we do here. Enjoy your evening! I want to watch some of those movies! They are so good!

Your photos are stunning, Sheri! From the pretty fall leaves that remain to the darling grandchildren. Love seeing them getting so big and happy. The stack of books ornament is so charming. And the Starbucks wreath is clever. My husband had a coffee and had tea there this morning after our walk. Enjoy the Advent season, my friend.

I absolutely LOVE Hallmark shows. My favorite actors are Candice and Lacy. I enjoyed Christmas Town too. I even like some of the older ones and as I sit at my computer I will watch them over and over - I am bad.

We have the yard that when you blow the leaves away - you just make room for more - everyone's leaves blows into our yard.

Funny I was at Pier 1 today myself.

Well it is beginning to look like Christmas by you! Very pretty.

Good morning dearest friend!

Yes, Christmas is coming. It's already come, long ago, and lights up every year at this time, but what I love about the spirit is that it can be Christmas anytime of year.

We are enjoying snow and wonderment here with all the lights on our street. Thanks to our friend and neighbor across the street, we are probably an award-winning block for Christmas lights!

Enjoy all the merriment and love of the season.

I'm loving Christmas in your world. It's festive and pretty and filled with little ones with happy smiles! (And I loved Christmas Town too. There have been some good ones this year.)

Mellie said...

Pretty holiday photos! We got rid of cable, so I haven't been able to watch any Christmas movies yet. I did put on Home Alone the other day while I was doing some housework. I will have to see if I can stream any of the Hallmark movies from somewhere.

Beautiful cozy Christmas.

Pam said...

Love tree and the decorations. Yep, our leaves have been gone for so long...seems like forever. Beautiful pics.

It looks like fall is still hanging on in your neck of the woods. We are soooooo cold here in the Midwest. It's been hovering around 25 degrees everyday and this morning we had frost. I guess we need to get used to a few months of this!



Your grandchildren are so sweet. I love your idea (I read your last post) of using your children's ornaments on. your tree. I always smile when I pull out the ones my kids made...great memories. I really like the clear ornament with the music note paper. A few years back I remember bloggers finding all sorts of uses for sheet music. I still have a book. And your tree is gorgeous!🎄

I'm working on a post. Seems I never have time to sit still--and then the parties start and I don't have a bare minute!

Great post, Sheri! Happy Holidays!

Jane❤️

Patricia said...

Hi Sheri, what lovely seasonal photos you share. I enjoyed seeing more of those gorgeous Autumn leaves, and the pretty red berries. Your little granddaughters are so precious, and I bet they really enjoy Christmas this year. The Christmas tree is spectacular - I do love a good Tree! Happy Christmas preparation dear Sheri.
