Home For the Holidays, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Tall & Handsome and I both are hopeless when it comes to the holidays. The decorations, the music, the kitschy movies, the food, and the festivities.

I’m normally a “gonzo” Christmas decorator. All in good taste of course…

Well, the last few years T & H and I have had very little opportunity to partake in our shared love of Christmas gone wild… Many times our things were packed up and unavailable…we were living out of state…just a whole cornucopia of things stopping us.

Well, not this year!

Despite my warning him that his back would never heal, T & H insisted on decorating a few days ago…and we did.

It now looks like Christmas done “Bev lite”, but it still looks like Santa’s elves were busy spreading cheer and we are enjoying it!

I’ll share a few things with you including some of my dated ornaments I’ve been collecting since 1974. I also try and pick up a Christmas ornaments as a souvenir when ever I take a trip…just to have a reminder of that place and time.

And, so…Home for Christmas!

    1. Thanks Sherry. I’m hoping next year I can do a little bit more like I’ve been accustom to doing, but our lives have been kinda hectic the last few years 🙂 I just know were enjoying what we have. Happy to share 🙂

      Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year!

    1. Glad that brought back precious memories for you Sherry 🙂 Daddy is also know to call me his “little Texas girl” because I had my 2nd birthday in Fort Worth. We were living out there when Daddy was working for Chance-Voight aircraft as and engineer. Years later (many I might add 😉 ) we were living in Alabama and he was working for Rust engineering. “Us” Southern gals are such Daddy girls 😉
