Welcome to Seasonal Sundays.

I love how Christmas is a holiday that we decorate for …

…both inside and out!

Even our garage get decorated! None of our outside decorations would have happened but for my sweet and Christmas loving son.

Hope that you and your family are enjoying readying your home for this special time of year.

What a beautiful home & what a sweet son to decorate for you!! Tell him that he did an excellent job. I also loved your reindeer tablescape. I went to Wal Mart today to see if they still had the red flatware. They have some, but not pretty like yours.

Thanks for hosting SS! Your outside decorations are terrific! Do you get snow in your neck of the woods? We always have to watch that our outside decorations don't get buried by it!

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Can your son come to my house? Please? We have a long house and doing the Christmas lights is a dreaded job for us. This year we opted just to do wreaths outside and no lights because we're supposed to get a new roof sometime this month. Seems pointless to put them up when the lights will be in their way.

Thankfully, a some people in our subdivision and another subdivision near us do a fantastic job with lights, so we won't miss anything.

Thanks for hosing the party.

I love getting everything out to create Christmas everywhere, but putting it all back is another story. Good for you for making your home such a festive place.

My husband grew up in New York city and they didn't decorate outside since they lived in a brownstone. Therefore, not much going on here with outdoor decorating! Love your outdoor decor. Thanks for hosting ;o)

Beautiful! I love lights on houses! The Mr. has had our lights on since right after Christmas but I've yet to finish the garlands,bows,etc. for outside this year. I am really into reindeer this year so I'm sure you can imagine how much I am really enjoying those reindeer in your yard. Great job! It's so joyful!

So sweet of M to do the outdoor decorations. Mine used to do it too, but when they have their own house to do, you don't get any help!
