Traditions new and old

We are all moved into our new house!  So much work, but it is worth it to have so much space! Our newer contemporary home is so different from our little old farm house. At first i was hesitant about the move,(i loved our charming little slice of history)but i have to admit that i love how light bright and new everything is!
We are no where near unpacked, but the tree is up and we found the ornaments this weekend so it is no longer naked.You can just see my (still naked) looms getting adjusted to their new digs.I really want to put my towel warp on Lucy(norwood) and i have some great ideas for some new rugs on Murphy. (for the new house of course)

Here they are in the same room for the first time ever! Alas i have to keep unpacking,presents need wrapped,holiday baking has yet to be started and Christmas dinner still needs planning.For now i just walk by run my hands over the wood and whisper promises to them about the new year.
Just a closing shot of the gingerbread men that my mom made for me years ago when we moved into our first house.Growing up, this was the decoration that my younger brother and i would argue over. were they centered? should they be straight or swagged?One year my mom made us each a set of our own to share the tradition with our own children. I love these little men. It feels like home now that they are up for the holidays. :)
