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





















We've actually had our decorations up since the Monday after Thanksgiving, but I did want to share some pictures... since Christmas is my FAVORITE time of the year... and we do lots of decorations:). The past few years, we have had a fake tree as our main tree, but this year we started putting it up only to realize that it couldn't make it another year... it was in pretty bad shape. So, we put the tree we cut down in the mountains in our family room, as our main tree. I think it looks beautiful, of course, because I am not a fan of fake trees. My dad's uncle, who has a Christmas tree farm in MN sent us a small tree for our dining room! Anyway... enjoy the glimpse into Christmas around our house:) I just love the EIGHT stockings hanging over the fireplace...

OHH and the dresses that the girlies are wearing in the first few pictures were won in the My Adoption Website auction that was held last month... They belonged to Stefanie's girls. I think the girlies look adorable in them! :)

VERY cute dresses indeed. I didn't even know there was a contest from that website. It's been so very long since I've even posted anything to Maddy's original "blog" site.
Your house looks lovely and I especially LOVE the wreaths on the outside. I love driving by houses to see how they are decorated.
Merry Christmas to you all!!
