~Christmas in Historic Saint Charles~

A table in our dining room, decorated for Christmas 2007.

We have begun decking the halls, at our house. We plan to decorate the living room, dining room, kitchen, hearth room and breakfast room. The back porch and front porch will also be decorated, as well as J's "lodge" on the lower level.

The preparations won't be as elaborate, as last year. We have a Holiday visit to Biltmore Estate, in North Carolina, late in December. Therefore, we won't want to come home to lots of Christmas decorations, to dismantle.

We enjoy Christmas in every way! Decorating for the Holidays is a fun hobby for both of us.

Sunday November 18th, we visited Historic South Main Street. We were accompanied by friends, in town for the wedding.
The photo, at left, is one of many gaslights along Main Street.

We're standing on the steps of the gazebo, pictured below.
