Decorating for Christmas celebration brings back memories.

This stuffed doll which I made for my youngest daughter many years ago had been with us in many years. But she is still loved. Reminds me of my youngest daughter who is in Mexico right now, but will be home next week. I want Kossi, the name of the doll to welcome her home! She always takes the doll with her in her bedroom and sleep with her during Christmas time.

Under are some of Christmas decorations I made these last few years that makes me ponder.....

And these supposed to be my husband, our daughter and me which I crotheted a while ago too!

I made also snowmen. Actually lots of them, but I kept only three!

Another group of snowladies. I knitted and crocheted their hairs:)

I made also this little boy!

And this old lady!

And this christmas stockings! Hope someone put something in it:)

My white angel. She has wings, but too small, so it doesn't show in front:) Maybe I should put clothes on her. But again, it is art. So I hope I am forgiven! 

 Flower candle that I receive as a gift from one of my sisters many years ago. But I only used this for decoration because this is precious to me.

And now I put together all my different Santa Clauses or the like.

                                  I put the  small ones in my bookshelf!

Small varieties of Christmas decors that I collected over the years!

My angels!

And finally, my manger. The meaning of Christmas!

Another family of Jesus with the three kings and angels! A gift from the same sister who gave me the flower candle. Love this one too!

Snowman at the entance! I bought this one!

This is how my windows in front  looks like. Don't have so much decoration on my window post because our cat use to sit there:) 
Pillow cases bought in the Philippines!

I am not finish decorating yet. Hopefully,  I will be finished with the Christmas tree this week end!

How about you? Are you done with decorating yet?

Anyway, I am sharing our " Labor Union simple Christmas Party yesterday night. Last part of my post.

Here is me again while waiting for my sister who is going to go with me!

And here is the place we are going to have a party. It is cold, dark and snowing!

                             This is the hall and picture taking is a must:)

                                                  My older sister!

At the entrance! Their santas!

And the members......

                       The men's choir who entertained us!

My co-workers in the nursing home at the same table!

The name of the labor union: "Fagforbundet "written on the candle light.

Now eating time!

Day after, the sun shines.  Beautiful!

Signs of Christmas season at the nursing home too:)

With their Santa Clauses!

And this one is bigger than I am!

  No sign of Jesus or the manger anywhere! Where is the true meaning of Christmas? 

Do you find it anywhere?

Happy to have Jesus in my heart though! Memories that should not be forgotten!
