Deck the Halls

We're all decorated! We put up our first Christmas tree together last night. It could use a few more decorations but I believe decorations are a gradual process. Our collection will grow as we get to be old. We have about a dozen that are mine from growing up, one Scottish Santa i bought Ross this year, one from our trip to Ft. Davis in August and then some generic glass balls just to fill it out.

Even though the tree is fake, it still smells like Christmas thanks to the good people at Yankee Candle. And thanks to iTunes, it sounds like Christmas too. (Ross is employing a great deal of patience with the music. He's not a big Christmas music person but knows I am and so far is letting me get down to Jingle Bell Rock.)

I also fancied up our dining room table. I found a gold tablerunner which looks great against the dark wood table top. Throw in some fancy napkin rings and gold snowflake candle holders and you have yourself one merry table.

I love Christmas decorations! Happy Holidays!!

The tree looks great! That's the perfect place for it too - seen from the living area, dining area & windows - PERFECT! Must be time for a party...
