I have to admit that when Rob and I were house hunting, I kept Christmas decorating in the back of my mind. There were certain things I was looking for in a home for the specific enjoyment of decorating for the holidays. I won’t dare list them all but a few were lots of windows in the front of the house for candles, banisters to hang garland around, and a fireplace for garland, candles and stockings.
While I will never be able to compete with the number of Christmas trees (of all sizes) at my parents house, the the same yardage of garland, I think we did really well for our first Christmas in the new house!
|I love having bells on the door that jungle when Rob gets home from work!|

|I have several countdowns around the house but this was my first one and still a favorite because I get an M&M!|
|This was a bonus when we bought the house purely for decorating! I already had a cute Charlie Brown Christmas tree and we found the gift box lights at Walmart and thought they were perfect on the ledge!|
|Parker was very interested in all the ornaments we were unwrapping.|
|I definitely wanted to have a Christmas tree in our room. There is just something about the lights that make me smile! I decided with a green bow and Christmas balls because we plan to paint our room green someday!|
