Today Kevin and I spent the day (after Saturday School) shopping and decorating for Christmas. We were so excited because it's our first year in our house! We spent what seemed like forever at Walmart picking out our lights and other decorations, then we headed home to put together our tree. We bought the tree last year in the after Christmas clearance sales in hopes that we would have a house this year, thus needing more than our little table-top tree. God has truly blessed us since then!!!
Kevin doesn't like real trees, but he compromised with me by allowing me to buy a whole set of evergreen scented candles so that I can PRETEND that our tree is real. Haha. Not quite the same, but I'll live.
We haven't gotten to the outside yet, because by the time we wanted to start it was dark and even colder. We might do it tomorrow, or maybe even next weekend. I'm just happy to have my tree up! Kevin wanted to put the tree in the other living room and I threw a pretty huge fit because I NEED my tree to be in the room where I spend most of my time so that I can just look at it. Man I love Christmas!
Here are some pictures of the inside so far...outside to come soon :)
This is our tree!
Here is it from another view, also showing my favorite stuffed snowman and my cute table decor!
The mantle in our TV room with all of our stockings :)
And this is looking over our dining room table into our living room.
The living room and the mantle on the other side of the fireplace. See that adorable sign with our name on it? Kevin's sister gave that to us last year :)
The only thing that IS decorated outside already is our front door. I love this wreath I found for half price at Garden Ridge today!
I hope that you all are having a fun, relaxing, and happy weekend! Enjoy your Sunday!
