Beautiful Christmas

Over the Thanksgiving holidays the womenfolk in our family spent hours around the dining room table playing with beads. A while ago, my sister-in-law, Rhonda, was looking at earrings and decided that they would look good on a Christmas tree. So that’s what we did. We made Christmas ornaments using earring hooks to hang them with. I put them on my tree last night and decided it added a nice touch. They sparkle so pretty in the tree lights, these pictures just don’t do them justice.






Last night my husband helped me get out the decorations and we made our home look like Christmas. It is a wonderful time of year and I went to bed feeling happy.
