Decorating for Christmas!

So in honor of the fact that it actually snowed in the first week of December down here in Tennessee, I thought I’d share some snapshots of our Christmas decorating with you! πŸ™‚

The view from my front porch on Wednesday!

Oreo is so not impressed with our attempts to decorate him for Christmas. πŸ˜‰

The view from our entryway when you first walk in the door. Mistletoe straight ahead, a Christmas tree to the left in our living room, a Christmas tree to the right in our dining room (not pictured here) and one straight ahead in the fireplace room.

Have I mentioned that we have six Christmas trees?

Let’s count…

Christmas tree #1 in the living room, #2 in the dining room…

Christmas tree #3 in the fireplace room. Check out the super adorable reindeer on the hearth… Christopher built those for me out of scrap wood! πŸ™‚

Tree #4 in the kitchen!

#5 in the bathroom. And if you look closely at the mirror you can see where I wrote “I love you more than s’ghetti” on Christopher’s side of the mirror. It’s in response to him writing “I love you more than pizza” on my side (not pictured). Why yes, yes we do like Italian food quite a bit… hehe πŸ˜‰

And finally, #6 in our bedroom. It’s hard to see in this photo, but this tree is super sparkly! I love it πŸ™‚

So yes, we have six Christmas trees, but… well, we just REALLY love Christmas! And we’ve only spent a grand total of $22 on all of them. 4 of the trees were gifts/ones no one wanted anymore so they were free. And the other two (our living room one and kitchen one) we bought after Christmas for 80% off! πŸ˜€

I will leave you with this snapshot from when we were putting lights on the trees…

  1. Everything looks beautiful! I can’t believe you guys have six Christmas trees. I also think it’s SO weird that you have piles of snow down in Tennessee and up here in Wisconsin we have yet to see any! Love the pic of Oreo ~ he looks totally unimpressed! ~ and the pic of you and Christopher all tangled up in the lights πŸ˜‰

  2. Wow six trees!?! That is AWESOME! Almost as awesome as how much you paid for them YESS!

  15. hahaha you are so funny! You’re JUST like Sharon (Greg’s mom), and she always sets up the most beautiful decor….and has about 5-6 trees as well. πŸ˜› And you and your neighbors could totally use that huge tree with snow as a Christmas tree~! Then gather ’round and sing together lol.
