"It's Christmas time in the city....."

"Ring a ling....hear them ring...."
I wanted to share some of our Christmas decor with everyone and to be honest and nothing has really changed since last year but we can re-visit it together!! This is our kitchen table ( I say kitchen not dining because it is literally in our kitchen, ha) I love Holiday plates and I will let you in on a little secret this 4 piece table setting is from Walmart for $25 and this is our second year to use them and they are great!
It is hard to see the lights on the mantle as well as the lights and candles in the fireplace but when I took this without flash it was too dark! And yes our animals have stockings as well!! The Sizzlin Savage 6!!!
Here is our tree, if you know me then you know how much I love GOLD! I love how this tree shines and makes our walls look so warm and cozy! One thing that is missing is our tree skirt, it is MIA! But heck this weekend the tree will be covered in presents and you will not even know!
A little up close action, last year we replaced all of our nicer glass ornaments with plastic in case they fell off the tree while we were away I did not want to worry about the dogs eating or hurting themselves!!!
We do our staircase in greenry & lights...and I kinda felt like the lights do not match with the gold lights but Matt loves clear lights and we compromised!
Well hopefully this week I will have some pictures of the outside of our house... it looks amazing!! But we have 1 string out and Matt is a perfectionist so he won't let me show you until they are fixed! I am lucky Matt loves doing Christmas lights outside!!
I am almost done with Christmas shopping and this year I have done everything online!!! Are you done? Or have you even started?
I am excited about this week because Thursday is our JH Christmas party at Deep Fork , Friday is my book club Christmas party, Saturday we are having dinner at our friends the Karpe's and then to finish off the week Sunday we are cooking dinner with Matt's family for all the families at the Ronald McDonald house!! This will be the largest amount of people I have ever cooked for, around 30!! I am very excited to be able to give back and have a great time doing so!

I love your Christmas decor! I'm slow in getting mine up and Phil has boycotted outside lights this year...makes me sad!!

I love the lights on the stairway! I've been hesitant to finish mine...wanted to see how the tree would go with Sookie and we now know! Once I put the stockings up she may actually pull down the whole fire place.
