merry, merry

Some of my favorite Christmas spots in our house today...

Noel \No"el\ (n[=o]"[e^]l), n. [F. no["e]l, L. first birth,
fr. natalis natal. See Natal.]
Same as Nowel.
[1913 Webster]

Nowel \Now"el\, n. [See Noel.] [Written also noel.]
[1913 Webster]
1. Christmas; also,
a shout of joy at Christmas for the birth
of the Savior. [Obs.]
[1913 Webster]

2. (Mus.) A kind of hymn, or canticle, of mediaeval origin,
sung in honor of the Nativity of our Lord; a Christmas
carol. --Grove.
[1913 Webster]

Savannah's been saying "Noel!" to everyone; she tells me it's another way of saying Merry Christmas. I asked her who told her that and she said she told herself. I then had to look it up and see what exactly it does mean, and she's really not too far off.

Hope you are having a peaceful and joyous weekend taking in the sights and sounds of celebrating.

I'm so glad you posted Christmas decorations shots. It is fun to share ideas. I'm a little worried that you haven't gotten our Christmas card yet! Hopefully by tomorrow. I mailed it Thurs or Friday!

I love your decortations- especially what you have done with your table top. I love the beautiful simplicity and how clean it is! I am now wishing I had a rectangle table instead of the square. :O) The square drives me a little nutty when i want to put a runner on it- not so cool. :O)
