Here are a few looks into our home:
This is the big tree. And, boy, is it big. Last year, the ceilings in our house at the time weren't tall enough to put the top on the tree, so it wasn't quite so intimidating to decorated. But, this year, I probably climbed up and down on that ladder a hundred times before it was all said and done.
This is the small upstairs tree. This tree has all of our sentimental ornaments from our travels, special occasions, etc.
These are the kitchen cabinet tops. And, please know that that small fixture between the 2 sections is coming down - eventually. One thing at a time. I know that something larger needs to be there, but I just haven't found anything that I love yet.

I was SO impressed with my husband today. You see that roaring fire? Isn't it wonderful? Well, thanks to his mad skills and unlimited know-how, Brian had those fire logs installed in no time. And, I must say, it really completes the holiday atmosphere. And, isn't Vito sweet? It's strange to think that he's the smallest of our 4 dogs. Are we nuts, or what? Oh, and one more thing that you should know. See those wreaths laying on the mantel? They were hung just under the mantel, but they immediately started melting when the fire started. So, I had to moave them to the top of the fireplace.
