Christmas is just a days away, and I can now officially say, “I am done decorating for Christmas.” Yes, up until just a few days before Christmas I have been still slowly adding to our holiday decor. Partly because I was lazy and didn’t do it all at once, and partly because as Christmas decor goes on sale I just can’t help myself – I always need more. While there is quite a bit of cleaning needed inside my house, I am perfectly pleased with my outdoor holiday decor and ready to show it off.
I previously posted about shopping for additional outdoor decor at Sears (I am so in love with the curbside pick up option when you order online). After coming home with our goodies, K could not wait to see them in our yard. So when daddy came home from work, up went the new decorations. (Note, for some crazy reason Rudolph needs two separate extension cords. So, if you are considering buying him, be aware of the need for an extra cord to make him mover, I was not and that required an extra trip to the store.) Check out more about my Sears shopping experience and before and after pictures in my Google+ story.
Without further ado, introducing a very Christmas suburban home.
It’s a little hard to see, but K’s favorite part was decorating the magnolia tree with ornaments. Such an easy and colorful touch, if I do say so myself.
Oh and for you northerners, yes that is green grass and a blue sky in December! It was 80 degrees too. Welcome to Florida. LOL.
And at night. Ta-da!
The house looks so sparkly and twinkly. Why must we take it all down at the start of the new year? If I had my way we’d leave them up year round. Or maybe just swap things out for seasonal decor. But I doubt my HOA would agree, so come the first full weekend of the new year our decor will be boxed up and stored again until next year.
