I'm still around, but have been too busy to post, so I thought I'd show so random photos of our house decorated for Christmas.
This the mantel in our basement, it's supposed to honor childhood.
The tree, sorry it's sideways, I can't seem to fix it
Presents under the tree
Library nativity scene
One of our basement windows decorated to hold our cards until we open them together.
Another window decorated for the winter.
Village on top of the refrigerator.
Village on ledge.
Also, here's some of the mail themed stuff I got: how fun!!!
