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

Christmas decorations, oh how I love thee.

I managed to wait until the Saturday after Thanksgiving to decorate. That is some major self control on this girls' part.

But once Saturday rolled around, I dragged Mr. Perfect to the nearest Christmas tree farm Food Lion (hey, I live in the city and have no idea where a tree farm is), and bought our tree.

He might have been a little bit sick, sorry sweets, but he was more than willing to go buy the tree. Might have had something to do with shutting me up, but whatever works.

Let the madness decorating begin.

Putting the first ornament on...

Our tree! It's still pretty bare, but we get a few new ornaments each year. I don't have the room for multiple trees, so right now I love my hodge podge tree.

Up close

Don't know if you can tell, but we have no ornaments at the bottom of the tree... I have mentioned my deep love for out cat right?!?

DVD shelves

One end table

The other end table with my favorite plate

The coffee table. That gold hook should have something hanging from it, but I thought it was an ornament and put it on the tree and now I can't find it.... Hmmm

The hearth. Ignore the board holding up our mantle please. That's a home improvement task gone slightly astray. We're figuring it out. I'm also trying to figure out a way to conceal the satellite and dvd boxes, but haven't quite gotten that one yet either...

The mantle. The Mr. was loving him some "Cops" while I was trying to do this.

Another shelf..

Back door

Dining area with Baby Girl's mattress just chilling out.

Place settings

pantry door

My Christmas village in the guest room..

Another view of the tree

Well there's my little tour. Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our little holiday home! I'd be perfectly fine with doing more and more each year!!

I love your decorations! Hubby decided we wouldn't bother with decorations this year, but then we have to get rid of our tree anyway, so better to get rid of it before Xmas when people may want it, instead of right after. Not feeling very christmassy though!

I especially like the ladder going up your DVD rack!
