This weekend, I finally got all the Halloween decorations boxed and ready for storage. Hugh was out of town on a wrestling assignment, so I had planned on The Man-Cub coming over to help get the boxes back into the attic. Since the Cub is nursing a bum shoulder, thanks to that old football injury (micro-surgery is scheduled for December 9th); Shanti of course came along to help (she is literally his right-hand man, currently).
When we made the plan, we also intended to get the Christmas village boxes down from the attic. Shanti was actually excited about unboxing the pieces and helping with the construction of the village and, since momma ain't no spring chicken, her help was greatly appreciated. My Mom also came over for part of the day, to offer morale support, which was also appreciated.
I've written at length before about the process of building the village; this year was no less herculean in the effort, despite the addition sets of hands. We started with a clean slate...
I love your photos. Such joy. RegineReplyDelete
Wow! What a fabulous labor of love. I always wanted a huge Christmas village but struggle with where to set it up; I don't have a fabulous hutch like that!ReplyDelete
