The Halls Are Decked...FINALLY!

Having spent the last five days trying to get all of my holiday decorations up I finally finished tonight. I swear each year that I am going to scale back, I just can't help myself. I was at Target on Saturday night and couldn't resist picking up two packages of ornaments. Now I am going to admit something that not many people know. I have at least 12 rubbermaids full of decorations, and that doesn't include three full sized artificial trees. It's a sickness I know, but I just keep adding stuff each year. I just can't resist "cute".

Another view of living room doors.

We don't have a fireplace to hang our stockings so I made this stocking hanger a couple of years ago.

One of my holiday houses.

The living room tree is white with blue, green, and blue/green ornaments.

I always try to tuck in a bird or two on each tree.

Here is a Santa I made when the grandchildren started coming along.

A jolly little soul.

Here is a shot of the family room tree taken so that you can see that we got snow the other night. Now it really feels like Christmas

Here is a collage of some random shots of the decorations.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all.Posted by Picasa

Your home looks so cozy! I can't help myself when it comes to Christmas decorations each year either =). Hubby groans every year he has to pull box after box from the attic! Ha!
