It's Coming!



How very fitting that tomorrow, the day my Christmas tree goes up, the forecast is for snow!



It will be perfect, as least from my perspective....



With Christmas carols playing in the background and snow gently falling outside...



I will unwrap all my treasured ornaments and decorate our tree...



Rob, however isn't as enthusiastic about the impending snowstorm...
...or even putting the lights on the tree for me...



I will just have to convince him that he needs to get into the Christmas spirit...
..."I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus..."

:) Hope your weekend is full of fun!

P.S. The White Christmas sign was created and hand painted by Paula's talented sister, Annie!

Laura, I hope you get the feeling of Christmas with the snow falling and the tree being decorated. How absolutely perfect! Enjoy your Saturday!

Bonjour Laura! Have a wonderful time decorating. Your husband will get into the swing of things once he gets started - and the 'Santa Baby' thing will definitely work!

Ours goes up tomorrow as well. Enjoy the decorating time with your family!

Oh you lucky thing! Well, it is just ICY COLD here in Florida! :) We're in the 50's right now (maybe) and it's after 10PM. Hey, you take what you can get, right? :)

I just LOVE that wooden Christmas sign!! Your tree will be lovely, I'm sure! Pics?

It looks it can snow here as well this weekend, I am in the beautiful state of Washington on the key peninsula. I just love your blog, you have inspired me so much, hope you have a chance to look at mine.

Light a fire, pour some wine and put on Vince Vance & the Valiants "All I want for Christmas is you!" and I think the tree won't be the only thing lit up!
I love the way those paperwhites are tied together. I can almost smell their wonderful scent!

Happy December! Anne

Nothing like a Nor'easter to put one in the Holiday mood.Blowing snow, cold winds... makes you want to snuggle inside.
We just have lake effect snows here. Ha!
Enjoy your decorating.

Anna said...

have fun in the snow

Jacqueline said...

Oh Laura, would Annie like to make me a wooden sign like that ? I loved it as soon as I saw it on my sidebar. ....and so beautifully done.
Now, not too much kissing under the Christmas tree...you'll never get all of your decorating done.
I have to say that, putting the lights on the tree is my least favourite job.
Have a lovely time doing all your decorations this weekend, Laura. XXXX

Laura,
Maybe a few snow showers late this afternoon in Syracuse. Strange...we have NO SNOW yet this year! Maybe we can hand off that Golden Snowball award to someplace else in NY this year..with a little luck.
Enjoy your decorating today and meanwhile, I'll be working at the shop for the community tree lighting ceremony and village walk.

Mmmm - would he be more thrilled if you asked him to wear a Santa Suit to go with the music ? ;-) I can even send you some mistletoe by express courier... Affectueusement, Ange

HI Laura
Well I am envious!! NO White Christmas for me!! In fact... I have never seen a White Christmas... it is on my 'To Do In This Lifetime List' All my Christmasses have been HOT...the closest I can get to this is turning the aircon up to max.. hahaha

It sounds so wonderful... I have obviously watched too many movies and too much tv as a child but I think a White Christmas would be perfect!! I love your White Christmas sign too... gorgeous!!!

Ok... I'm off to turn the aircon up.. xxx Julie

sissie said...

Love that sign. It says it all. Lucky you, I hope you get snow. Here on the coast of the Carolinas we don't see it much. Tomorrow is forecast sunny and high of 70! Oh well, I got fake snow scattered all over the place.

Keith said...

Good luck with getting your tree up. I'm putting up my tree, etc. this weekend.

The Feathered Nest said...

Oh Laura, the sign is so gorgeous to me!!! I'm so glad you're putting your tree up ~ seems as though our husbands lose their enthusiasm for this stuff!!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, stay cozy! xxoo, Dawn
