Before Peter Jackson turned the books by J.R.R. Tolkien into movies they were books that were read over and over in our house. In fact my husband still reads The Hobbit once a year. In fact, one of the conditions of him marrying me was I read the whole Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I did too, sitting out by the swimming pool when I lived at home. When our daughter was born we would ask her, " What do you have in it's pockets, little Bilbo Baggins." Just silly things that get in our family history.
When our daughter was about eight she started reading them all on her own and she is even a bigger fan that her Dad and when she was in art class, she sculpted Smaug. So because in 11 days the Hobbit movie comes out, I thought I would take a picture of her sculpture.
I also found this old candle stick holder.
I never have found the snowman. Next year when I am not teaching school, I am going to organize this whole house. I have stuff stuck every where.
So just a rabbit trail on my way to decorate my house. Here is one thing I got decorated. Remember the cubby hole thing that my husband made? I put Christmas things in it.
So that is what I have done today. I think all that I have left to do is put the Christmas tree up and I don't know when we will get to that. Reading over this post, it is a rabbit trail too. :)
Have a great week,
