Christmas Photos

So I'm going to be more prompt about posting my Christmas photos. (Unlike the ones from Thanksgiving).
We did not have snow on Christmas Eve but it did snow a couple of days before and stuck around for several days.
Zeke went crazy in it.
Holly was unimpressed.

Do you have a family ornament that has been passed down?
This one has been in my husbands family for over 100 years.
It spent this year on my niece's tree.

Here are some ornaments from my Aunt and Uncle's tree.
Teddy bears anyone? :)
These are some of the lights from the "Bugg House." This is only part of a huge display containing over 200,000 lights and numerous characters, that now lives at Menaul High School but at one time, the entire thing was at the Bugg's single family home.

Christmas Tree Toppers

Or I should say, non-traditional ones :)
This is ours...

And this one is not ours, but I really like it!

Merry Christmas to All!

Christmas in Southern California

Our previous 6 Christmases have been in Southern California. So, I thought I'd share some of those photos with you. Since Orange County doesn't get much snow, they bring in their own.

These are the lights on one of the homes in Huntington Harbor. Folks even decorate their boats!
We put up luminarias one year. The stand with the candle on it tells the story of why we put up luminarias, since most of the people in our neighborhood had never seen or heard of them.
And finally, picture of our tree. Several of the decorations were ones I had made myself from the time I was little. But most were made of various sea shells. We accumulated a lot of sea shell decorations over our 6 Christmases there, so many that I can decorate the tree with sea shell ornaments alone!

Yikes! Thanksgiving Photos

I know! It's taken me forever to go through my photos this past month, so these are from Thanksgiving. The first is of our beautiful table. We were crowded but it was a nice crowd!
Next is of the horse that was so happy to see us when we went on our after dinner walk.
And this is Lucy, who belongs to a neighbor of my Aunt and Uncle, and got to join us on our walk.

Holiday Updates

Just wanted to let you know I've updated my website for the Holidays. All sale prices are good through December 13th and will ship in time for gift giving.
I've updated my decorations and themes on both the website and the blog too. Keep an eye on the storm on the homepage at butterflybequest.com, it will probably get heavier! Aren't you glad you can shop from home!
