So it is safe to say, my family is crazy about Christmas decorations… Shocked?!? haha…. My sister Rachel and my mom have probably 20 trees between them! And no they are not small trees, they are tall, big, fully decorated with their own themes, beautiful trees! I hope my sister posts her trees because they look like they came out of a magazine! Maybe I should just go take pictures of hers and my moms and post them myself! : ) Well..last year I got bit by the tree bug, more like got talked into it by Rachel, and did my first big tree. We spent hours at hobby lobby and I came up with a vineyard theme, i LOVE it. Now I am hooked! : ) I have added two more to my collection, a peacock themed tree and a black, gold and silver tree! There is this local store called, signed sealed delivered, that has AMAZING decorations, its almost overwhelming, but that is where i got my peacock inspiration from! It was quite humorous to see Drew’s face when I brought home one tree and decorated it and then the next day brought home another.. he thinks I am nuts : ) But he SO should have expected it. I got to decorate a mantel too this year! I had stockings monogrammed last year for Drew, me and yes Sadie Jane. : ) I am still not up to the level of my mom’s or Rachel’s, but I am learning! Here are some pictures!

So, now I am sitting here thinking about all the Christmas Shopping that I have YET to start and how last year I was almost done at this time! oops! Maybe I should stop looking at all those cute holiday dresses all these stores have out! : )
