Merry Christmas from Sweetbrier!

"She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." (Luke 2:7, NIV)"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." (Luke 2:14, NIV)

Decorating for Christmas

We've just about finished decorating for Christmas and I thought I'd post a few photos. We seem to do the same thing each year but with minor alterations. First, the outdoor lights...An icy cubed-snowman happily welcomes visitors
A reindeer nods approval
Once inside, a group of jubilant snowmen greets our guests!
Sledding anyone?
Five stockings hang from our mantle...
Two reindeer from the 1960's keep an eye out for Santa
Cassie helps decorate:)
An angel sits on top of the tree overlooking the living room
The one thing we do change each year is the color of ornaments on our tree. Since we've collected ornaments for some 40+ years there's quite an assortment from which to choose. This year we decided to honor my alma mater, the University of Delaware, so all of the balls are blue and gold. Go Blue Hens!

The final product!
Sweetbrier Cottage sends best wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas!
