A New Decoration for Christmas

We started decorating a little bit for Christmas. We have a modest home. No fireplace nor mantle, but we do have an entertainment center that I'm reluctant to part with. One of these days....we will probably have to get one of those flat-screen TVs that are rectangular in shape and they just won't fit on the current piece of furniture.

Our entertainment center also serves as a place to display some of our Christmas decorations. Last year, hubby & the kids got me Graceland, which plays several Christmas songs sung by Elvis.

This past Oct., my hubby and my Mom went on an outing in search of some yarn for a project that my mom was working on. Of course, we ended up at Michael's Arts & Crafts. It was Oct., and they already had their Christmas displays up, so we took a look around and this is what we found...

Here's a close up of 3 women inside the Three Bags Full Yarn Shoppe....

There were 3 of these in the store, one was on display and there were 2 in the box. My mom got one and I got the other. I've been anxiously waiting until it got closer to Christmas, so that I share this on my blog! Hubby just smiled that day at Michael's and he said, "I guess we're done shopping now, we can go home." The kids didn't even know about this decoration. They just smiled and laughed.

Knitting update coming soon.
