It’s beginning to look alot like Christmas

People are always surprised to hear that I really don’t like to decorate for the holidays.  they think just because I’m relatively artsy that I also must love decorating.  Truth is, I like how it looks but I hate putting the stuff away afterward.  I do admit that once all the boxes are out I do kind of get into it.  Every year I swear I am going to do more to the outside of the house but I always put it off and it never gets done. Neil tend to string one strand of icicles over the garage and that’s it.   this year I actually embellished te garland that I bought years ago and put it up around the doorway.  I also did some lights on the trees and bushes.  It’s not done yet so no pics but I’ll take some as soon as the outside is done.  Here are some pics of the inside of the house,  the beginnings of our holiday decor.  I took the pics at night so they aren’t great.  img_3583img_3584iimg_3585img_3588img_3589img_3590img_3591img_3592
