Now that our kitchen is finished, we have the pleasure of turning our attention to Christmas decorating. It's a good thing, too, because Christmas is just around the corner!
The first thing we always do when decorating for the holidays is get a real Christmas tree to put in this corner of the living room. We didn't even think about how we'd be able to see the tree through the dining room from our new kitchen until we stepped back to admire our work.
When we get up on dark winter mornings we always turn on the Christmas tree lights, and now we can enjoy looking at them while we make our morning coffee. We love that!
Because we're running a bit late this Christmas, we kept our tree simple with white lights and gold and brown ornaments. We bought a few new ones on sale at Target, and with the coupon from the Cartwheel App on my new iPhone they were a great deal.
Up next is wrapping the gifts to put under the tree. I'm so glad I did my shopping early this year, and now I'm looking forward to staying inside where it's warm while I finish decorating the house for Christmas.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you're enjoying the season and that you have a great week!
It wouldn't be the holidays without some parties!
