Christmas Dreamin'

I'm trying to get a Christmas blog up and going. 


This little scene was in our front yard this past Christmas.
Our entire family and a neighbor helped build the manger together.  I had to keep bringing the baby into the house because of rain, rain, rain all winter here.  My momma gave me this Cabbage Patch baby when I was 18 yrs old.  I think it is a God wink that I named him Timothy and then married Scott whose sir name is Timothy.  lol

We used scrap lumber out of the garage to pull it together. 
Our lil princess helper is use to being in her daddy's garage workshop with this kind of thing going on.  :0)

Power tools,

We even had the straw for baby Jesus from our garden shed.

I die-cut cardstock and laid it out on an inside out boyscout sign that we were told to throw out when the fall registration was done.  I used clear packing tape to seal it all from the weather.

This blog is where I'll find the courage to start a meme this fall as I get lil gifts together and organize my Christmas collections.  I really hope to do like Debbie at A Debbie Dabble Christmas and have many trees displayed this year.  I think I can..I think I can...I think I can.
