One last weekend before Christmas is upon us. The span of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas has whizzed by this year! (And yes, my to-do list is still miles long.) I hope to bring you a few short Christmas posts in the coming days as this year draws to a close. (That way you and I can both still enjoy blogs and have time to get things done on our to-do lists!) Our daughter’s room is decorated much as it was last year, but since her room was redecorated this past year with new bed linens and drapes (and had the furniture rearranged), it looks a little different. This is the view as you come in the door.
I was able to use the same snow themed throw pillows on the bed this year (and I think they look better with these linens than they did with the previous ones.)
The desk has a jar of snowballs again, (and our temperature here this weekend is supposed to be in the 70’s. Real Christmas-y, right?)
A Hallmark cookie dish holds books on the table by her black checked chair. (I put the books there in the hopes of persuading her to start the Jan Karon books over the holidays.)
Red mittens and another jar of snowballs are back on the dresser again.
And the garland above the window has red mittens and little white lights that stay on 24/7. They are our daughter’s favorite part of the Christmas decorations!
And that is all there is to see in our daughter’s room this holiday season. Don’t open that closet door…it is full of all the things she brought home for her break from college. During her final exam week, a couple of boys up on the 4th floor of her dorm were playing around and accidentally knocked off the head of one of the sprinkler system shower heads. They could not get the water turned off for a while, and it flooded the dorm. Yes, flooded. My daughter said the water was flowing down the stairwells! She is on the second floor, and water was coming out of the lights on that floor. So they had to vacate the building (yes, during final exam week!) Such is the exciting life of a college student.
One last school day and it will officially be our Christmas holidays! My morning duty is unloading the cars full of children and greeting them all with a “Good Morning!” You could feel their excitement Thursday morning, so I know Friday will be a lot of fun. (The teachers are just as excited!) I will want a looooong soak here on Friday night.
Have a wonderful day, and think of all the teachers, students, and school bus drivers on this very high energy day.
