Still standing


While not an ornament, this white ceramic tree is another of my FAVORITE Christmas decorations! My grandmother, Yvetta Pearson, painted it for me MANY years ago at Pat Boatmen’s ceramics shop in Stewart. This is the only thing I have that she painted. And while there are 3-4 lights out and it has travelled all over Mississippi with over about 30, it is still standing. I am amazed!

Christmas past


I haven’t used these sweet ornaments on a Christmas tree in probably 15 years or more! We had to dig deep for these, but so worth it! Do y’all have ornaments that you don’t use? When we were first married, I had a Christmas tree in every room. I have worlds of ornaments, but I don’t have the energy or the space for a house full of Christmas trees. Maybe next year! #goals❤️ #MERRYCHRISTMAS

#Santabait


With just three gifts floating around on @amazon, I can just about say we are officially ready for #Christmas! The #santabait is up, cards are sent and most of the gifts are wrapped! We are excited! Since I am under chemo quarantine — avoiding the flu– I am staying home from all the celebrations this year, but enjoying all the Christmas I can from a distance! Soaking up every minute! I am so grateful for so many precious people sending #christmascards and happiest! We are INCREDIBLY blessed! #GODISGOOD 🎉🕊️♥️🎅🤶❄️⛄🍭🎄
