It was Genna's turn to hang the star. Does it look familiar? I found some new Christmas decorations on clearance last year but had never decided on a star so I painted last year's.
We had our traditional eggnog toast when we were finished decorating.
The magic happens when you turn off the lights for the first time.
This year since our house is on the market and we haven't had much interest we agreed to be part of the library Christmas parade of homes. We had 76 take the tour. We tried to have a little something in every room.
Master bed & bath
the hall bath- wrapping paper covering up Monet's Summer Day
the living room
my nativity collection- my favorite part of the Christmas decorations
Jameson's room- if you can't tell he has a nautical themed room
the family room- you might notice Troy's contribution in the middle of the room- the old entertainment center and tv looked silly with the new stockings hung in the windowsills- we also got a real tree for the first time in Genna's life
and lastly the laundry & downstairs bath
Even though it was a lot of work to decorate it is so nice to have it all done and ready for Christmas.
