No Place Like Home #3

This Monday the 7th of December for No Place Like Home hosted by Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, I’m sharing some of our Christmas decorations. Thank you Sandi!

Our front door and the entry to our home.

We have a variety of nativity sets in different areas in our home.

This mini wooden set was the first one we bought at Disneyland in the early 80’s. I bought it so our little ones could play with it with no fear of breakage.

This one is for our grands, Addy and JJ to play with.

Can you see the white metal nativity up at the top above the door on the entry window ledge?

All the decorations that are going up at our place are up now. I’ll share the tree and ornaments next week.

Today we are in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and we’ll be driving back to Colville in Washington State. I won’t be able to come around to visit blogs until tomorrow.

Wednesday Medley

1.  On November 28th, 1995, President Bill Clinton ended the 55 MPH nationwide speed limit that began in 1974 as an energy saving measure during the Mid-East oil embargo.  If you are old enough to remember this (I sure am) did it make you happy?  Do you have a heavy foot when driving or does 55 MPH sound good to you?

It made me very happy. I do have a lead foot and try to stay at 5mph over the speed limit…most of the time. I do go 20 or 25 in school zones. This is all with good road conditions. I do not have a lead foot in the rain, snow, or sleet! I slow way down.

2.  You are home alone on a rainy/snowy Sunday afternoon.  What Christmas movie will you watch?
Home Alone or Miracle on 34th Street depending on my mood.
3.  What is something you have tried that you will never try again?
Liver and Onions. I only tried it because I was served it and out of appreciation to our hostess I ate it all trying not to gag.
4.  Today is National French Toast Day!!  Will you have some?  Do you like French Toast?
I do like French Toast but will probably wait to have it for a weekend breakfast sometime.


5.  The Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center will be lighted today, as will the one at the White House in Washington, D.C.  Do you have your tree up and is it lighted?  Have you ever been in New York City or Washington, D.C. to see the trees all lit up during the holidays?
I’ve only been to one Christmas tree lighting ever and that was in Seattle several years ago. No tree at our house yet. We will probably cut one down at our son’s or in a National Forest later this month.
6.  Tell us something random about this week of yours.
I have started Christmas decorating pulling out all the Christmas bins. It’s been interesting and fun finding new spots for old things at our Country Bungalow. Some things have been moved a few times to find the best location. We are still in the midst of painting so some decorating will have to wait. When our EWK (Eastern Washington Kids) were here last Friday Addy and I opened up her Little People nativity set for her to play with at Baba and Gramps’ house until Christmas.
Linking up with Terri in Florida for Wednesday Medley.
