I don't decorate any more but did make wreaths for the cemetery. Here is one I made for my son-in-laws Father who died last summer at only 63 years of age. He loved to hunt.

Much of our Holidays are centered around food.....I am the cook. Tonight will be meat ball sandwiches on hoagies, baked beans, cole slaw, pasta salad, chips etc. Brunch tomorrow will be bacon, link sausage, hash browns, eggs, and muffins. Then we will exchange gifts. About 5pm on Christmas Day we are going to grill New York steaks and also have mashers, roasted cauliflower and garlic green beans. Lots of shopping, cooking and clean-up. I'm happy that I can help make my families holiday enjoyable.

Team Natural here. I have a artificial tree but we have so many cedars for wreaths or centerpieces decorated with pine cones and nuts. Hollies and berries are abundant. I love to cut cedar limbs so the house smells like I have a natural tree. We have a small group of gardeners that will make a wreath as an activity and some are just wonderful.

Paul, I have enjoyed the photos of your Holiday creations. They are gorgeous.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

Team natural here, though not much this year due to my mother being very ill. A wreath for out front and a small alberta spruce with lights and a few decorations . Hopefully it will survive so I can plant it in the Spring. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

Thoughts of wellness for your mom Bob. Group hug

Merry Christmas!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
