Well, I'm finally done decorating. I didn't quite put out everything this year, but it is as good as it is going to get! I had hoped to finish earlier in the week, but despite Jennifer and I wanting the firm to be in "December mode" (ie: not doing a whole lot of work and doing lots of shopping and decorating), things haven't worked out that way. No complaints clients are always welcome!

Here are the final decorating photos that I will subject you to!

Below is the entry table (not real exciting, but I took the photo for some reason).
Here is my "Winter Wonderland" tree that is in my bedroom.
I was trying to remember when I purchased this Christmas tree and can't quite remember. I know it either originated in Wichita Falls or Lubbock, but either way, I think this is its final showing. It is pretty craptastic (some of the limbs aren't even connected the back of course)! I will be closely watching Garden Ridge again this year for the 75% off sale.

Below is the little village I have set up in my bedroom.

I also tackled the outdoor lights today.
Here are a couple of photos of the front door decorations.
A closer view so that you can see the jingle bell lights around the door. It's darn near impossible to get a good photo of the outside of my house. You can't get the whole thing in a photo because of the trees! Just imagine if you could see the whole house, there is also a lit wreath between the garage doors.
Predictably, when I got all the lights out for the bushes, half of the strings didn't work! I bought a bunch of white lights on sale last year after Christmas, but didn't have any extra red ones (and wouldn't you know it was mainly the red ones that didn't work!). I made a mad dash to Wal-Mart (looking pretty scary I might add...though I kept telling myself it was only Wal-Mart!) and bought some red lights. When I started decorating, one of the strings I purchased didn't work and then I bought one too few, so I'll be going back tomorrow so that I can finish decorating the end of the bushes!
