Christmas is Up

My husband and I are very proud of our eclectic Christmas tree.   Right after we got married, my husband's mother gave us all of my husband's Christmas ornaments she had purchased for him over the years.  When my late grandmother stopped putting up a big tree at Christmas, she gave us several of her non-precious ornaments.  When my parents stopped putting up a Christmas tree too - they gave me all their ornaments.

For example, we have my first Christmas ornament from 1980 hanging on our tree...
And one of my favorite Christmas decorations is my late grandmother's ceramic Christmas tree, which is adding classy Christmas magic to the dinning room.
Although we can't be too classy because I enjoy a gaudy Christmas most.  I have a plastic snowman and a five foot santa greeting you in the front of the house.  My husband wrapped all twelve of our columns with red ribbon too, which gives the house that little something extra.  We're having a lot of fun this year.
