Christmas Decor

Everyone who reads this knows how excited I was to decorate for Christmas so I thought I'd share with you my festive decor.
This window from our living room into the kitchen has been deemed my holiday window and it has been festive for Halloween, Thanksgiving and now Christmas, its fun to have an area to change up like that.
This is the only place I could think of to hang our stockings because we don't have a fireplace and our stair railing is only a flat wall, taping them would look a little rough.

Oh Christmas Tree. This is a really pretty tree, its got a great shape and the aroma is to die for. I don't love my decorations though. I mean, I thought they'd be so great but they're just not. Maybe its because there aren't enough on there, maybe its because I've got too much going on. I don't know.
Here is the best picture of the outside of the house I could get. Its not great but you get the general idea...Maybe I should take a day time one.

Merry Christmas!!! Can you believe its only 20 days away?

I'm not saying your tree isn't perfect because it is. But if it wasn't I would say it is because it lacks a little uniformity. Love the wreaths. I have a ton, but no way to hang them here, yet!!! I'm still working on it.

I like the ribbon around the tree! Gee... the stockings look familiar! Your mom sure has a great talent. I actually really like where you hung the stockings. Your place looks festive! Are you planning on coming back to PA for Christmas?

I wish a had an ounce of your enthusiasm. I still have yet to buy one Christmas gift. Our house has zero decorations up and now you're reminding me I only have 20 days left? Thanks. Your house looks great though!

I LOVE your little wreaths in the window. All the neighbors have been talking about how nice it looks! It might even be listed in the HOA letter. Dude, yeah!
