it is begining to look a lot like...


If kelly had his way we would have had our tree up in October.. thankfully I won that one and we waited until Sunday night! Please see our 1st tree below. Don't worry we have another one that is not so formal.
Now let me tell you about our battle with the d├ęcor. Now for those of you who don't know, this is our first Christmas in our new house and thankfully we have been blessed with friends and family that have donated things to us for decoration! With that being said Kelly has this overwhelming urge to place every single item that we recieved for donation on display throughout this house. So on our way to life group on Sunday night I asked Kelsey. "kelsey, what do you think of those blow up santa's in the yards?"
"EWW those? They are tacky!" she replied.
YES i replied in vendication! Point made!
Now, don't get me wrong I love the holidays and i love how in to in my husband gets!! I do not love the griswold style decorations though. I like the white lights all over the exterior of the house and simple things inside.. Kelly however has somehow made our house look like santa threw up Christmas in everyroom. So little by little i am trying to remove a few things and place them back in the boxes where they came from.

O Christmas tree!

Kelly enjoys teasing callaway and didn't miss a beat with the tree.
He chased him around until he was so scared he ran outside.
This is where I found him 20 minutes later!

I tried to get a picture through the window.
I laughed so hard when I saw him out there!
I think he was scared of Kelly and the crazy Christmas tree!

Tree #2

this was our first tree.. we got it for our 600 sqft apt in Dallas.
It has now moved to the kitchen of our new house.
NO, those are not really presents under that tree, they are decorative boxes that kelly throws all of my presents in each year and calls it "wrapping"
