. . . mission accomplished . . .

. . . almost . . .
. . . i wanted to have
all the decorating done
before thanksgiving . . .
. . . most of it is finished . . .
. . . we haven't put lights
on the house yet . . .
. . . we're doing family photos here
on friday . . .
. . . i didn't want lights and wreaths
in the background . . .
. . . hopefully those will be up
before the weekend's over . . .
. . . i still need
to get the nativities set up . . .
. . . love them . . .
. . . hate the styrofoam . . .
. . . :( . . .

. . . so ~ the biggest difference
this year? . . .
. . . the entry . . .
. . . here's 2007 . . .



. . . and 2011 . . .


. . . the tree ca. 2007 . . .


. . . the tree today . . .


. . . no big changes . . .
. . . i just shined everything up
and moved a few things around
a little . . .
. . . and took out
most of the black/white stuff . . .
. . . still trying to calm down
about the random dark spots
on the tree
where the lights just won't light
any more . . .
. . . but thankful
~ oh, so thankful ~
it's done . . .

Beautiful- Amazing- Gorgeous! One day when I don't have little ones sneaking every shining ornament into their toys (cuz they know they are off limits but still do it) I will have a beautiful Christmas home. It's amazing! LOVE LOVE LOVE
