MM: Christmas Decor

Today at theRHOK, Mrs. Edwards wants to know about when you decorate for the Christmas season. While that may mean Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or Frestivus to you, here it does mean Christmas.  And we don't start till the fat lady turkey has sung.  I mean, I am not the proud inventor of the Give Turkey's a Chance movement for nothin'.

As of now, my husband surprised me with his general enthusiasm and put the outside lights ahead of HIS schedule, but right on mine. Small Christmas miracles, they do still happen. We also have our big tree up.  That was no small feat people.  That required moving 5 large pieces of furniture, lots of vacuuming and the discovery of lots of crap underneath. Child labor was enthusiastic and ready to help, though. And....


Now, we are no where near the House Tour of 2009, which is still one of my most viewed posts, all year long.  The house will almost look the same, so just pretend it's 2010, ok?

Make sure and link up at the RHOK! Grab a button over at the right.

We always have to do some rearranging and find lots of unexpected stuff that's been hiding under the furniture too :)

Very pretty!

I can't believe you already have lights on the house and one tree up! I'm jealous!

We don't have to move much furniture for either of our trees - thank goodness.

I'm headed over to see your Christmas tour pictures.

The new layout looks great!

I LOVE your tall tree! It's gorgeous! I'm fortunate to have an open space where I can just put my tree up. No moving furniture. I do love to clean though while I'm putting up Christmas decor. It's like my time for "spring cleaning" in the winter. Makes everything feel all fresh and new again.

I checked out your Christmas tour pics and they're beautiful!! Love them!
