Christmas All Through the House

December is my favorite month of the year because it means we get to decorate for Christmas! We actually started in the last few days of November getting our halls thoroughly decked. Jake & Mal helped Daddy line our driveway & front door with lights.

The finished product
The kids loved wearing their Christmas t-shirts throughout the season. Jake is a jingle bell rocker.Mal is good all year (just ask Santa).J always makes fun of the number of trees in our house, but I just can't help myself! Here's the "show tree," on which everything matches, in the living room.
At the top of our front staircase is my Gone With the Wind tree, full of Scarlett in all of her beautiful gowns from the movie.
The den upstairs is home to my Barbie tree, which Mal oohed over repeatedly. Maybe one day it will get to be in her room.
And the tree in our room has a miscellaneous collection of all of our family ornaments. Jake & Mal made several additions to it during the month with ornaments they made.
I always have a hard time figuring out what to do with Christmas cards, so this year I tried something new. The kids had so much fun standing in our front hall looking at pictures of our family & friends.I'm sad that it's already time to start taking it all down!

It looks so good. Love the Barbie tree. I am sad that mine did not get up this year due to a certain cyclone that lives in my house.
