Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly. Ok, well not holly, but decorations!

There is no delay in me getting the house all decorated for Christmas once Thanksgiving has passed and I have my freshly cut Fraser Fir. I may have had a hard time keeping my eyes open and I may have been so sick that I was so achy that it hurt to put the ornaments on the tree, BUT…that doesn’t stop this Christmas admirer.

This is the first year in our new home so I had a lot to envision before putting up the decorations. I knew what I had, but I didn’t know where to put it all. After I got everything up I realized that I had a lot more space and several more rooms I needed decorations for. I know that as the years pass I will accumulate more of a collection, but for this year I’m happy with things being simple.

Even though I love decorating for Christmas, I’m not a huge fan of over decorating. I like to keep things as simple and classy as possible. Our tree remains a simple color scheme of red and green. Each year we buy an ornament from Cracker Barrel (another tradition) and we add it to the tree. Last year we let Mason pick out the ornament. I’m sure in looking at the pictures you can figure out which one he pick {sock monkey}. I’m sure this year we’ll let him pick it out again.

I put a few pictures up of some of the decorating I did. Nothing to grand by any means, but enough to make my home feel like Christmas is in the air.
