Our little home decked out:
(I did not allow the Grinch and leg lamp from a Christmas Story to be placed in the center window of our home, but it somehow ended up there! I wonder, hmmm)
Our mantel with stockings galore:
(all the stockings include the animals, roommate and Baby Colton)
Our dining room:
(notice the pretty girly colors)
Our DUKE tree:
(told you we were serious about Duke basketball in this house)
Our main tree:
(next year we will have a bigger tree and this one will probably go in our bedroom. Yah, bedroom! We LOVE Christmas that much).
This Christmas was good to us. It was weird being our first Christmas not traveling to see family however we made the best of it. Santa was super nice to my hubby and got him an IPOD Touch, Blue Ray movies, video games, drum accessories, Duke shirt and Redskins hat. I was blessed with new pearl earrings and necklace, gift cards for clothes when I can wear normal sizes again, new CDs, the new Harry Potter movie, the new Mario Bros for the Wii (yah I'm a video game girl), new lamps for master bedroom, pjs, and perfume.
We had a lovely meal Christmas Eve and then went to church service at the Duke Chapel. It was gorgeous. Stunning!
Christmas Day we opened presents and had a delicious meal!
It was a great holiday but it would have been better if Colton was here. Fingers crossed; any day now!
