Christmastiiiime is heeere.....

Visions of Charlie, Sally, Linus, and Peppermint Patty are dancing in my head as the Bailey home fills with Christmas music and anticipation of the arctic front that's blowing into Dallas late tonight. It should be 38 degrees and wintry when we awake in the morning!

In honor of the chilly weather, I thought I'd share some photos of our tree-trimming this past weekend. Doesn't decorating for Christmas seem a lot more exciting when it's not 75 outside??

Typical Steven-being-silly-with-the-twinkle-lights pic
(note the new olive green color I painted above the fireplace!)...



Michelle and I...



I found these stocking hooks at Target and was quite pleased!


The adorable nativity Steven's sister, Michelle, sent us from Gobbleville - check out Joseph's turban!


...and the finished product :)
