Christmas 2013

As you know, we moved into a new house in September.  The decorating and organizing game is going VERY-Y-Y-Y slow and I know we will get it all in place eventually.  But, for some reason we are not in a rush and it really bugs the crud out of me sometimes.  Right now, it is Christmas time so that is the decorating going on and it is not as detailed as other years.  We did a little home decorating while we were "iced" in as well.  Here are some photos showing what our house is looking like these days...

The bar and a look into the kitchen and breakfast area.

This is the door to our garage, I definitely need to add a wreath!

This banister has to do for stockings, we do not have a fireplace in our house.

I promise we have gifts... but I am a traditional kind of mom and Santa brings them ALL on Christmas eve!

That is just about it for our Christmas decor this year.  I hate doing all of the work decorating and sharing it with hardly anyone, except the 3 of us.  It will be a whole lot more fun once we do not have to travel on Christmas and people just come to our house.  Luke is loving all things Christmas this year and that has made it all worth it.  I can only imagine what next year is going to be like!  

Our lights! 

Thanks pinterest for the photo ideas!

We are snowed (iced) in!

The past 24 hours have been FREEZING!!!  Luckily, school & work were cancelled and we get to be at home for a lovely 3 day weekend!  Here are some pictures from our fun in the ice!

Just one of the few pinterest projects we decided to tackle this weekend.
