A Village Created by A Loving Son

I saved this post for the last one because it really doesn't show trees, but does show another very imortant part of our Christmas decorations. It is the gift that my oldest son has given me, adding a piece or two every year. He started this collection when he was quite young (If my memory is correct, he was in the second grade). He and I both look forward to seeing the new addition each year. I always have him sign his name and put the year on the inside of the box lid so I have the gift of his signature as well.
It's the Christmas village!

I hope you've enjoyed this 4-post tour of the forest we call our home.

As you can tell, I love Christmas. I love the sights, the sounds. The smells, the treasured memories. I love my friends and my family. And most of all, I love the baby whose birth we celebrate.

Merry Christmas!

Your Christmas village is awesome, Jeanette! I love the different levels you did with it, and with the lights off, it looks like a winter wonderland! Thanks again, so very much for this tour! I'm humming It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year as I type! Merry Christmas, dear friend!!

Wow! Jeanette, your Christmas decor is awesome! With all those trees in the house is there any room for people?!! Your village is terrific! I love the stories of the Christmas traditions your family have created. I'm very nostalgic that way. Sure wish I could see it all IRL! Wishing you and your family much joy at Christmas time this year! Hugs, Judy

Thank you for sharing Jeanette. It is wonderful!

How do you prepare for such a large but beautiful tour? And, where do you keep it all when it is out?

I only have 2 and am hinting to my hubby that I would like a collection of these too.

Happy Holidays!
