Christmas Decorations

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of my house decorated for Christmas. ( I can see in the pictures that it is time to paint, though!) . I really LOVE these "Believe" blocks! I was originally going to make some, but found them already done at a cute gift shop here in town, so I figured my time was worth more. I do think I will try them on my mantle next year though!
This is my living room-the room you see when you walk in the door. This is my first year to have a tree in the living room AND the family room. Ever since I was teaching school in Texas I have wanted 2 trees! Our school secretary had the whole staff over one night, she had a tree in her living room that was so formal and beautiful AND one in her family room with all the colored lights and kid ornaments! I was soooo impressed!
My living room tree is not exactly the way I want it, but it is there! I have all thePrecious Moments ornaments on it, I will hit the sales after Christmas with this tree in mind!

This is the family room "Cowboy" tree. My Texas SILs have sort of started a tradition for me. Ever since we moved to California, they have sent me the cutest western ornaments for my tree! Beckie (who live here in town) even got me a darling long horn belt buckle ornament this year. Yee Haw!
* One extra great thing about today is the invitation the girls and I received for tonight! Since Scott is gone we have had some pretty "lame" dinners, I must admit, so when we were invited to go over to Brad and Beckie's house for dinner tonight, we were so happy! The bonus is , we get to see Austin and Gavin! Lindsay has been planning her strategy to sit by Austin all afternoon! Gotta's time to eat!

Your Christmas decorations look so pretty and festive! I also noticed the Christmas book from Susan Branch on your counter...I am a big Susan Branch fan! You have a beautiful family! Merry Christmas! :-)

Your Christmas decorations look great and I especially like your vacuum lines in the living room! haha!

I am glad you girls were able to come over tonight. That was fun and Austin loved it. I think he feels very special with Anna and Lindsay doting over him! Thanks for helping me give Austin a bath. The whole idea was for you to have a night to NOT have to do anything and you still ended up helping.

I am too tired to try to write my post about my Dad. I will try tomorrow!
