fa la la la la

Just sharing a few holiday photos...
This house is in a neighborhood by ours, we love it. These people have about 700 light up things in their yard for Christmas. It is unreal. I swear they should be on that HGTV show about over-the-top holiday displays. My photo doesn't do it justice but you get the idea. (this is their back yard)
All our stockings hung by the chimney with care. I keep thinking I want to get matching stockings or make some cute ones, but the kids like to see the same ones each year.
This is my favorite mini tree. It is sparkly green with little red felt balls I made. Again, my photo doesn't show its true loveliness.
Our Elf on the Shelf, Buddy (named after the Buddy in the movie), he is so magical. If you don't have one, you need to get one. My kids totally know he is reporting their behavior, good and bad, to Santa every day.
One of our wreaths, this one gets blown all to heck because our house sits on a hill and the wind whips like crazy. It sounds like burglars are trying to get in at night, it bangs and clangs. I'd like to get a prettier one but considering it sometimes is laying on the grass from getting blown off, I'll stick with this one.

I'm pretty much done decorating around here. I still have a couple trees I might get out and decorate if I have the time/energy. Ha ha ha, right now I am thinking it won't happen. Just letting perfection go, enjoying what I have done to this point. Now let the baking/card making/wrapping begin!
