Christmas Decorating

Today has been a nice and lazy day. Rose went back to her house this afternoon. She's a sweetie. We FaceTimed with Jaclyn the other night and Rose totally got it. She kept trying to break through the screen to give her Momma kisses! It was cute. I love FaceTime. It's my new thing....

I decided it was time to decorate the house for Christmas so I tackled that today. I got my Santa Claus tree up first. It's pretty easy to decorate and doesn't take long at all since I don't put much stuff on it. I always love the way it turns out!

After the tree I set up my snow village. I've been collecting the Department 56 Original Snow Village houses for many years now--since I got my own place in college actually. I buy one new one a year. This year Scott went with me and I let him pick. He went with the diner....

It's super cute! I love my snow village and I go all out with it. It's probably my favorite part about my Christmas decorations. I use 'bead board' and shave it to make it literally look like snow. You can find it at any local hardware store usually and its inexpensive but really adds that extra oomph! to the village.

We've officially run out of room for anymore houses--in this house. Hopefully we'll be in a new home for Christmas next year so it won't be a problem! (Can you tell I'm super ready to move?)

Now Scott and I are relaxing on the sofa with some wine and we plan to stay here for the rest of the evening. We ate our version of the last supper tonight. We've had a good run the last few days on 3,000 calorie per bite meals. It's over now. Like I said I would do, I threw out all of the leftovers and our fridge is now stocked with chicken and vegetables ONLY. We both feel disgusting and I'm pretty sure I gained 1 pound per day since Thursday. I literally could be mistaken for a pregnant lady. Needless to say, I will be sticking to fish, chicken, fruit, and vegetables ONLY until Christmas. I'll probably throw in a cappuccino every once and a while though--I love those too much to say goodbye for a month.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
