Our Holiday Home

Hi Friends~ I hope this night finds you all warm and cozy at home with your families. Good news to report, today the electricity FINALLY came on for many of my friends. Tonight would have been ONE WEEK! Yikes. I am so happy to see the lights on in my neighbor's windows. 
Last weekend, we put up the lights and got our tree. The kids had the tree picked out in about two seconds. It was painless and I think they picked out one of the best trees we ever have had. Good job guys .As far as the lights going up, a couple of strands had to be replaced, but other than that we were good to go. Whew!!
The front porch all lit up.
The porch before the lights went on. I have to say I LOVE pointsettias. The more the merrier.

I love this wreath. I bought it at Target. I love how the red is so vibrant.
The perfect tree with nothing on it
Aren't the trash bags under the tree lovely???  They will soon be covered with the tree skirt.
The lights are on, but still a lot of work to do
Voila...Its Done! The kids have so much fun decorating the tree. We all love pulling out the ornaments with all our names on it and the year we got it. We have family ones and individual too:)
A quick peek at the lit up mantle. MORE TO COME!

Thanks for visiting and have a cozy evening~
