Fa La La La La, La La La Laaaaaaa!

Deck the halls with boughs of holly . . .

This is how I spent my weekend. My entire weekend. But it is beautiful (in my humble opinion) and now, save for two or three gifts left to buy and Christmas cards, I can just sit back and enjoy the season. All is calm, all is bright.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas. I surrendered control for a moment and let the kids help hang ornaments. I usually do all the decorating while they are at school to avoid this kind of mish-mash of ornamental chaos. I think they appreciated and enjoyed the gesture.

This is all me, back in control again. No one does the wrapping but me in this house. It's my most favorite part of Christmas. The kids have spent hours already speculating about what could possibly be in all those presents. I'm giddy listening to them. These are a few of my favorite things.

I try to pick up one new nice decoration for the house every year. Maybe by the time we have grand kids my house will really look as beautiful as it does in my Christmas dreams. This year I got this cool stocking rack since we have to put a couch in front of our fireplace in order to get the tree in. I love it. Now that we're all ready, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! (It won't, but we can wish.)

Merry Christmas one and all!

Can you tell we spent the weekend listening to 99.9 KEZ's non-stop holiday music?!

  1. Amy, your tree is beautiful. I couldn't get mine to look that good even if I did it all myself. And very cool stocking rack, I've never seen one of those. What a great idea! Congrats on having so much already DONE!! I am very impressed!! I am just getting started... wish me luck!

  3. I have been working and working and working. So it all starts tomorrow..except my nativity scene. I LOVE that thing, so I put it up ASAP! Definitely won't look as good as yours. Also for some reason I have been tearing up to Christmas music this year. What is wrong with me?

  4. I always love your house at Christmas. I remember one year your tree was covered in white felt snowflakes on clothes pins, that you had MADE! I tried it, they were aweful :(
    I love your stocking holder!
    My little girls are moving the decorations all over the house & it is making me a bit "hum-bug"y already! UGGH!
