First we're going to show you our big tree in the living room and go on from there.
The tree is 7 1/2 feet tall and is decorated with only handmade ornaments. Most of them were made by our mom and we helped with some of them. Other ornaments were made by our friends and relatives.
The BEE-U-TEE-FULL polar bear ornie is from our friend Prudence and her mom.
Bellamine, that little snowman isn't handmade. Is it?! I thought Mom said this tree was just for the handmade ornaments.
It's OK Wendy, Mom said I could put my snowy ornament on the big tree cause he's too big for our tree but maybe we shouldn't say anything about it and nobody will notice.
This cutie pututie ginger boy was made by our auntie Maggie. Isn't he the sweetest little softie?
Our mom has many collections and one of our favorites is her collection of Christmas bears.
She puts some on tables
and sits others on the mantel
and some are put on the buffet
Another thing our mom collects is Snowpeople. There are many different kinds of snowmen like the two here made of iron and there's a hook that holds a Christamas stocking.
and then there are the softie snowies like this little family here. The mom and dad were made by our auntie Maggie and their son was a gift from our grownup sister Bambi.
We especially like the Snowman painted on this little house. If you look close you can see where is says, "Let it snow....somewhere else." Teeteetee
In the weeks between now and Christmas we'll be helping our mom do some more decorating and help her bake cookies and make candy to give to our friends and neighbors.
We will also be watching Christmas movies and wrapping gifts and being the best little bears there is so we get lots of pressies from Santa and our mom.
That's it for today. Now we're going to go see if our mom needs help with anthing like maybe licking a spoon or taste testing something. We think she's making peanut butter fudge today.
See you all really soon. Remember that you need to be on your best behavior if you want Santa to leave you lots of pressies.
Bellamine & Wendy
