Ready and waiting...

The outside is done:

The tree is done...

complete with train...

and my mom's ornament in its place of honor at the tippy-top.

The rest of the upstairs is done:

And the downstairs is done:

with new, whimsical addition, a Charlie Brown tree! :)

The cookies are baked, the fudge and pretzel turtles are made, and the cleaning ladies left us with a spic and span house. All that's gonna be done, with the small exception of a rum cake tomorrow, is done!

The only thing left is to wait for all the bodies to get here before an expected winter storm does. Erg! Part of the southern gang will arrive at o'dark thirty tonight and the rest will show up on Saturday, all safe and sound and
hopefully, sans snow!

The Charlie Brown tree made me smile. And I love the photo of the reindeer in the golden light--so beautiful!
