A Little bit'a Christmas

It's Tuesday!
We all survived the back to work Monday after Thanksgiving!

My hubby and I are having a Christmas Open House Party on Dec 11th! I'm very excited, this will be our first ever "adult" party! I'm hoping we don't end up with a Clark Griswaldian fiasco! I have been doing my best to prepare...and I have a little bit of Christmas decorating to share this morning. I'm not finished by any means so there will be more to come.

Standing Guard

I love this picture frame! $7 at a craft sale!

Cookie and candy tree

Family room tree, still needs a tree skirt!
