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

Christmas Decorations Post #1
As the songwriter says, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"! I love lyrics. Did you know that there is a lyric for just about every situation? And this one is certainly very appropriate for our house in the last two weeks.

We really like Christmas decorations. Wait, let me say it again, just so that you understand me. We really like Christmas decorations. In fact, we have about 35 large storage bins full of them --- and that doesn't count the 11 artificial trees or boxes full of decorative picks!

There are way too many pictures to put up in one post, so I'll have to separate them. We still have a dresser top, a small tree and our bedroom to finish (today's projects) before we can finally take all of these bins back up to the attic. These pictures are close-ups of the kitchen decorations. The one above is the top of the fridge and freezer. I just finished that last night, except that we still have to hang the ornaments on the tree up there.

We've tried to get a tree and a nativity in every room, and I think that except for one bathroom, we've made it! The other three photos are the area over our kitchen cabinets. I'll get some pictures showing the whole kitchen soon! We also have another (larger) Christmas tree, but I can't get a good picture yet.

We decided to put a lot of the more "whimsical" decorations in the kitchen. A lot of the old Santa things, gingerbread men and the like. The more "traditional" look is in the living room, music room and TV room. More pics coming soon . . .
