now all I need is snow.....

I'm headed to bed after a long day of decorating! With the trees up and the lights twinkling....I know it's a bit cliche....but it's beginning to look alot like Christmas.....
The socks? They are our own homemade version of an advent calendar...from December1-24 we will find a little gift/note/something in there each day. (I have the odd days, Tommy has the even) So far, so good. Helps us to enjoy the entire month leading up to the big day. I'm happy about it...and excited to add it to our Christmas traditions.
Below....our great room pencil tree.
The first ornament Tommy ever gave me. I just love getting it back out each year. It seems like yesterday and then it seems so long ago, too.

The sock advent calendar going up the staircase. Ewwwww...looks like day 4 has a note in it already....

The main tree in the dining room...less something for the top. Going to have to be something small, huh....since the tree is nearly busting throught the ceiling...
Cheers to a wonderful holiday season....
