Christmas Eve

For Chirstmas Eve we drove to Prescott and spent the night at the Hassaympa Inn. I have written about this place  before here . It is a beautiful historic hotel and they have many beautiful Christmas decorations so I thought I would share a few.
Little trees on tables...
By the fireplace
The biggest tree was in the main sitting room
and my favorite...
The peacock tree in the Peacock dinning room....
Up close.
We had a wonderful dinner and great breakfast and then headed homeward.

Christmas at my house

I really drug my feet on putting up any decorations because our kids moved to Texas so no one was coming over. I did finally decide I would put up just a few things that were really easy so here they are....
Front door...
Kitchen counter

Half wall into living room

Nativity scene given to us at least 40 years ago.

Christmas card holder

and last but not least this little tiny Christmas tree. I can't say I put the tree up but rather that I put it here as it never is put away, simply covered and stored. I don't know how many years ago I bought this but have always liked it and bought very special tiny ornaments for it...


I have always struggled to find a star or something for the top and this year I saw a pattern to crochet a angel so I went to work and here she is...

I am pleased and must say I have really enjoyed all the lights

Do you see what I see...

This is my Christmas cactus and look here...

I do believe that is a bud and only two more weeks until Christmas!

Update for Thursday night dinning out

A while back I posted about our Thursday night dining place called "The Links". I had said that there was nothing special about the inside but they recently did a upgrade and it is pretty nice so will show you some pictures of it.

Golfers hats displayed on gold clubs. These use to be above the bar.
All new paint and new chairs...
New fun sign and pretty ceiling lighting...

Bigger dinning room
Glass enclosed dinning area looking out to the golf course

The bar area and see that guy with the bare leg? That is my hubby and our favorite sitting place.

A little inside advertisement and how clever to add the golf bag.

Sleep tight

Do you know how "Sleep tight" got started?

It comes from the fact that early mattresses were filled with straw and held up with rope stretched across the bedframe. A tight sleep was a comfortable sleep.
