Ryan and I...with some help from the boys...worked all weekend getting the house ready for Christmas, and it's finally done...for the most part! Here are some pics of the final product!
I love that Ryan grew up with this sign in his front yard, and now it's in ours...=)
The front door
My mother gave me this Santa years ago, and he comes out every Christmas!
Even though it's such a HUGE job, I love decorating the stairs. =)
I love pulling out all of the sentimental ornaments like this one of Austin when he was just a baby...
This one is from our first Christmas together as husband and wife...
We've started buying ornaments from trips we take, and this one is from our trip to Alabama with my whole family summer before last. It has a picture of the U.S.S. Alabama hand painted on it...such a blessing to have those memories together as a family.
This one has a story behind it, but I won't blog about that one...=)
It's from Ryan's and my trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico this past summer.
This is one from a precious student of mine from years ago...I have several from students that I'll treasure forever!
Not a great picture, but it's the mantle!
Love these snowmen from Homegoods!
Ryan's stocking my mother-in-law made him years ago. Trysten has one too, and one day the whole family will!
One of my favorite Santas!
A portion of my Santa collection
Some kitchen Chritmas decor Ryan had when we met! I love that he decorated for Christmas even when he was single...totally impressive!
Tis the season...
