First I'll start with the wreath I put on the front door. I was going to buy some fake greenery and make my own, but when I compared the price of doing that, to the price of this pretty wreath ($15) from Wal-Fart, it just didn't pay to do it myself. Now, I was all gung-ho on putting battery powered white lights on this thing, and I bought a set of LED. Well, I hate them and refuse to even light the thing because they don't light up white, they light up light blue!!!!!! I may have mentioned before that I do not like blue as a Christmas color. Don't know why... I just don't. To me, blue is a Hanukkah decorating color. Oh, and I know... door color... gross. Believe it or not, this is the second house I've lived in with a front door the color of diarrhea.
Next, we'll move into the foyer. I bought these two little trees quite a few years ago, and just this season decided to put some lights on them. That clock in the middle is my favorite of the 4 we own. It's got the prettiest Westminster chime. Which incidentally only chimes when you wind it. Which I keep forgetting to do.
Here's a couple pictures of my next-door neighbor making me a swag out of fresh clippings. This is how you do it in Florida. You sit your ass down on the driveway and you don't even get cold! Hey Madison? Get your face out of my picture!

The mantle. I went out in the back yard and clipped some branches off the ugly pine trees for this. I think it looks pretty good, but each day I'm watching it turn a little less green and a little more yellow. Sigh.
So that's about it for my indoor pictures. I know what you're thinking. Helloooooooooo... where the hell is the TREE? Well, we didn't get it yet! We're going to get one on Friday night when Jill and the girls are here, so there will be more pictures to come! I also have to share with you all the outside lights, but that will be another post.
But before I go, let me just say that Christmas didn't just eat my house; it also ate my SUV!
Don't go shakin' your head at me. You know damn well it's cute! I was driving through a parking lot last week and this skanky looking guy was walking toward a store and yelled out, "Hey, I like your antlers!" Hell, I'll take my compliments whichever way I can get em!
