Home for the holidays

After I picked up Lannie and Leo yesterday, I swung by Treeland to see what kind of trees they had, then decided to just go ahead and get one.
I figured I wouldn't have another quiet weekday afternoon, and as it turned out, that was a wise move. It started snowing last night and hasn't let up since.
I found a good spot to put Mom's Santas.
And put a few things on the dining room sill.
And got the tree all decorated! Still have to figure out what to do for a tree skirt, and maybe get big red bow to put near the top, but otherwise it looks pretty good, I think.

Hanging the ornaments was a trip down memory lane. Mom brought out most of hers on her last visit; many of them ones I grew up with, including some from my great-grandmother's house. Sweet and sad.
