It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

everywhere you go.   And I mean everywhere!    A lot of stores have had their Christmas decorations out before Halloween.    Our mall and outdoor mall have put out their decorations and a platform is all set up for Santa’s arrival.   

Today we are at my sister’s lake house decorating for our annual family Christmas get together which is always held the Saturday before Christmas.

Here’s our mantle last year:

Every year we decorate about the same because my sister and I don’t buy too many new things to use at the lake house….just a mis-mash of whatever’s on hand.   


We’re fixing chicken tortilla soup tonight with homemade cornbread.     She has a red velvet cake for dessert.

I hope it will be cold enough for a fire while we’re watching football.   


Hope everyone is having a good weekend and I hope whatever team you’re for wins!

Okay my Auburn friend...I know you said that you will be pulling for the Tide, but this Auburn gal can NEVER pull for it will be the LSU Tigers for me tonight. My oldest daughter is at the game with her Alabama husband...staying with his best friend from college...this guys dad is one of the asst. alth. directors at UA and yesterday they meet some being Trent Richardson and today they are getting to go on the ESPN gameday stage to take some pictures...any UA fan would love this, but she could care less...she has been texting us all the info...her dad ask if she had on gold and purple today and she said I'm not that BRAVE:) She will be pulling for the tigers too! Now I so wish I had a bowl of that yummy looking soup:) That was burlap coffee bags that you saw on my the colors of them. Hope you have a wonderful day at the lake.

Your sister's lake house sounds (and looks) like a wonderful place for your family's Christmas gathering. I hope you have a great weekend, but I'm afraid I'll be pulling for the Tigers tonight, too. :)

What a wonderful getaway for the weekend-even if it does involve a bit of work. What fun it must be to celebrate Christmas there with family. Do you put a tree up?

Enjoy your football. We will be watching the Packers play tomorrow-xo Diana

What a smart thing to do..get a jump on the decorating. How lucky to have a special place to have the party.
I love taco soup, so easy to make and so tasty.
Have to say we were cheering for LSU, but guess I have to, I only live about 20 miles from the school. LOL

What a beautiful home! And, I love the mantel decked out in its rustic elegance! I look forward to seeing what you all did this year, too. What FUN!
