Today is the day we started putting 'Fall' away and bringing out the Holiday Spirit! We honestly tend to go over the top in decorating both inside and out - and we and all our family and friends love it just as much as we do!
Over the years we've had various different themes and color schemes. Last year I shifted things up from a sparkling gold and silver look to a totally 'Woodlands Cabin Look' including lots of black and red plaid. Way fun! We like it so much we're going with the same theme again this year! We only got a few things in place today (well ok..... to the average Woodlands Bear that would be true) but for us Desert Bears! To us it means running around fast to Christmas Music of course! I expect we have another couple of days or so of finding and getting everything else out - but that doesn't include the BIG TREE! The photo below features just the little trees in a side alcove which is used for champagne tastings and taking photos with Santa!
Gary is still busy putting up the entry way garlands - and it's going to look so festive!! I should really get back out there and help him! I sure don't want Santa to think I'm slaking off, now do I!! No!! Shhhh don't tell Santa!!
I am grateful for the Christmas Season!
