Here she is with her tree...

This year our Sandy decorated our 
Tree totally by herself.  
Yes, Dad set it up and she had help draping 
the 30'+ popcorn garland as it was 
too much for one person to handle,
she then decorated with most of 
our 'Memories Ornaments'.

 ALL BY HERSELF,
WHAT AN AWESOME JOB AT THAT.
It is the most beautiful Tree we have ever had. 

 There are ornaments that my Father had on their 
tree back in Hawthorne, N.Y.  
He and his sister would toss them 
back and forth playing catch with the kugels.
There are ornaments from my childhood 
some from Poland, of course my favorites.
Then there are those from Sandy's childhood 
and our other three children,
 Michael, Sondra(Sandy), Pamela and Jeffrey.
Of course, from our first year of marriage, 
 before the children, are there too.

The entry to our home is very festive... 

Remember, we live in Apple Valley, California,
The Mojave Desert.

Now you are getting closer to  our Front Door

YUP, you are there...
WELCOME !
Please come on in for some 
hot toddy' & 'treats' 
of all kinds.
OR
you can sit a spell and enjoy the lights and weather... 
NO SNOW
but, we are hoping and praying to get some.
~ ~ ~ 
Just one more addition as I ordered a huge laser cut
snow flakewith a "S" monogram in the center.  
I need to paint it and add German glass glitter.  
It  will then be hung on the door.
Probably the closest we will get for snow.
I will post that NEXT, when it will then ready 
to be a part of the celebration.

Thanks so much for visiting...
Peace to ALL  
&
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Playing catch with kugels. ARGH!!!
Everything looks beautiful. Being a relatively new reader, I wasn't sure who Sandy was. Thanks for the clarification. She did a marvelous job.
Hugs and God bless.
