One of our favorite things about Christmas is decorating. So here's a sampling of what we have been up to.
Here's all our stuff out of the attic.
I don't know where we would put it all if we didn't have an attic!
Here's the official tree with all our favorite ornaments. We had several new additions to the tree this year with ornaments from our travels.

One thing I love out our house is having a fireplance and mantel. It's so fun to hang our stockings by the fire.

The past few years we have started collecting Department 56 houses. Our most recent is a travel agency, perfect for us!

We have 2 other trees and every room has some decorations, I didn't want to bore you :) Now the goal is to watch all our Christmas movies and listen to our over 50 Christmas CDs. I'm not sure I will have time to go to work each day, haha. In other news... we only have 18 more days till we leave for Italy, yes!

So fun to see all these Christmas storage boxes we've heard about. I see that you had two "dead" reindeer and a Christmas tree yesterday...I would have picked them up, but I think I would have lost to the wind!

oh the dead deer, that was sad. Steve put them back up last night and they survived the night. It's been windy today so we might have to make more repairs tonight.

I think we have a stack of storage boxes just like your's! Amazing how many decorations one family can have, huh?! Oh, but what fun!! Your house looks beautiful all decorated.
