It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......

This is our first Christmas in our own place and it's expensive! I've been living the life and luxury at mom's with all the Christmas decorations, tree, lights provided. So, I was tailing up a tree, lights, stand and WOW....so I decided to invest in a fake tree. I never thought in a million years I would buy a fake tree but I did.
Meet the new tree....Cameron decided it needed tinsel (thanks to Bob the Builder) and put the tree string up as decoration.

Cameron loves Christmas and has been asking to get things out since the end of October. So, when I told him it was time to decorate he could hardly wait. He's even asked several times this week if we could undecorate the tree and then decorate again.

Only a couple of catastrophes...

don't ask I did this one....I'm so sad and will be heading back to Ross to buy a new set.

Wall-la....here is our masterpiece!!!!

My harvest mantel was totally stolen from Teri....I copied her right down to spray painting the pumpkins silver. So, I'm proud to brag that I came up with this one all on my own!!!! I love to spray paint things....it's so fun!!!! So, when I found these black stocking holders I knew a little spray paint would spruce them right up.

Here is a few from the driveway....I just love my house!!!!
