It's beginning to look a lot like....



CHRISTMAS!
Beginning with my Arnett's Santas. I love these Santa's so much. I always pull them out first and start there. I have so many things I have to put away before I can bring out my Christmas decorations. It take most of a day to put all my pumpkins and harvest decorations. That is not to mention all the dishes that were pulled out for Thanksgiving. They need to be stored.....



Now the weather was frightful this morning 22 degrees out. I worry about my poor babies, the girls! They have lots of hay in the hen house. I wanted something more this morning, so I brought out some warm water and a dish of oatmeal with raisins and cranberries. The funny thing is I seem more bothered by the cold then them.  They did gobble the oatmeal right down.



One of my favorite Santa's


I need to go out to get my wreaths and greens today. Now I was wondering, do you decorate a room at a time? If so which one? Do you do outside or inside first. All at once or a little at a time?
I always start with my window lights and my Santas and kind of go from there. Then I cut my greens and get my wreaths.

You know as we get ready for Christmas here I have noticed how much my chickens have changed our lives I get up,dressed and outside to let the girls out and feed them their breakfast.
I have added some new fashion pieces to my wardrobe......fleece lined hoodies, muck shoes, flannel shirts to name a few. Much easier to wash. I try to get home while it is still light out so I can let the girls out for some free range time. They run, spread their wings and look for bugs and greens. They just make me happy. I love to watch them run to me.

So I am going to get some Christmas pictures taken and posted, but do tell where do you start?

Love your Santas, Donna! I usually start with my tree and then go from there. I get my least favorite over first.....putting the lights on the tree. After that, the rest is a piece of cake.

Hi Donna - Oh, I'd be spoiling those hens, too. They are so cute. I love your prim Santas. I always start outside and then move into the living area. I am in such a small space this Christmas that I can only decorate the kitchen and dining area. In our larger home last Christmas I had Christmas decor in every room. I'm so looking forward to being in a real house again once we have built this coming year. Enjoy your Christmas preparations and sending hugs to the kitties. Deb

Donna you have some of my favorite Arnett Santas! I have one and never seem to get more when I go to shows, they go so fast.
I want to get chickens but too many coyotes around here and I would worry all the time about them. Yours sound so sweet.
I finished decorating today inside, takes me 2 days cause it seems you find a spot for one thing and then you have to move 3, you know what I mean.
I did start outside first on my covered porch while the weather was nice.
****Merry Christmas****

Your Santas are wonderful. I usually decorate one room at a time starting with either my living room or back room...then on to the kitchen and bedrooms. Hubby Bob teases me and says he lives in a forest this time of year. Janice

Oh my your Santas are so amazing...it is a dream of mine to one day own one...I will keep dreaming. I usually start with my outside decorations. I don't do a lot outside but that is usually first. Then I do my tree and livingroom. Because I am disabled I do a little at a time.
Thanks for sharing!
Be blessed,
Cindi
