"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!"

The inside of our house is ready....Still a few more things to finish up outside.
We added garland & little wreaths up the staircase...
We didn't put lights in the garland this year
Because this table in front of the staircase has lights...
The presents actually light cute!
I love how the house feels with the lights on at night...
Our Tree...
Traditional RED & WHITE...
This year we added a little green ribbon...

  14. Your decorating is gorgeous! I wish I had a banister like your's to play with! I can't wait to start decorating but my son is adamant that we wait until after his birthday to put up our tree. Maybe if we had a cool train like your's I could convince him. Hmm.....
