We are officially D-O-N-E putting up all of the Christmas decorations... finally! This year we did a few things different. I wanted to have a theme inside, so that meant buying a lot of new stuff, which I had fun doing. A lot of my buys came from trips to Canton, my second favorite place in the world. The theme is red, lime green and silver with lots of glitter! Here is our mantel:
Another new thing we did was put lights up on the house. I always do the bushes and call it done. Joseph has begged every year to put up lights on the house and every year I give him the big N O. Well this year he put his foot down and said he was doing it. By the way, Joseph is VERY afraid of heights! So I stepped back and let him live out his dream only to have to finish it for him b/c he didn't have the nerve to climb up a tall ladder (I have no fear of heights). So he did the parts he could safely reach while laying on the roof and I did the rest on the ladder. We are very happy with the way it turned out!
