Yuletide 2005

We decided to do a serious overhaul on our decorations this year.  John was hoping that would mean that I'd have less to store for the rest of the year.  Unfortunately for every one thing I threw out, bought two more. 

The big change was the decision to put the Tree in the living room.  We should have done that years ago.  It fits and it looks so much better.

The wreath over the living room fireplace has a matching lighted garland that covers the hutch in the dining room. 

You can't really see them in this picture but the mantle in the family room has my nutcracker collection.  They're just cheap dime store ones but they've got good color.  I also made the two wreaths on the wall along with 4 wreaths for the garage.
