The Halls Are Decked!

I am linking up with Kelly's Korner for Christmas Open House. It's so much fun to look at everyone's decorations. I'm also getting some ideas for next year. I love decorating for Christmas and I think I have passed that down to our kids because they enjoy decorating their rooms, too. Everything is pretty much the same as last year's tour except for a few new things. I hung new lighted garlands around the front door and made a new wreath for the front door using an extra wreath I had and a Christmas ball garland I found at TJ Maxx. It snowed one Monday, so after I dropped the kids off at school, I grabbed the camera and got the outdoor shots.  I thought it would be fun to hang the kids' artwork they have been making on a pom pom garland in the kitchen window. I hate that I couldn't put out my big nativity scene but with our new little kitty who likes to climb and get into tight spaces, I didn't want to take a chance of him breaking it. So hopefully next year I will be able to use it. I did use a small one, though that is not breakable. Hope you enjoy the tour! Merry Christmas!

I love all of your decorations, your house is so warm & cozy...just how I like my own at Christmas! I also love the way your kids rooms are set up right next to each other like that!
