It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We're having a FIAR Christmas tour of homes so I thought I'd play along and add some pictures of what Christmas looks like in our home so far.

Christmas tree in foyer. Please ignore the lovely cord on the floor. I usually try to camouflage it with gifts but I haven't wrapped any yet! Oops.

Top of tree (because I know you couldn't tell) and balcony with pretty pink poinsettias peeking over!

This is new. I decided to string some lights from balcony to balcony over the living room. We just put them up last night and it was pretty fun to have them twinkling overhead in the dark. I think next year I will either do more or switch to those lights that have the lighted snowflakes attached. Wouldn't that be fun?

This is our new kids' tree in the living room. I bought a taller slim tree because the little 4.5 footer was sheathed in ornaments last year. Not sure how long this one will last, either!

I hang our stockings in the dining room so I can use hooks with Command adhesive that wouldn't work on the stone fireplace in my living room.
I haven't finished in my kitchen yet, but plan to keep it fairly simple. Too much work is happening in the kitchen to allow much room for Christmas decor!
I'd love any and all to link to their own Christmas pictures at home!
