I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas! As promised, here is a tour of our Christmas decor! My mom is amazing and I've also included our Christmas Village! It is my Grandma's and this year I put it up. It's been a few years since it's been out and I decided it was a must this year!
Of course, my dad does the roof lighting. He's pretty awesome too!
Christmas Eve dinner is something we all look forward to. It's the same as Thanksgiving, and there's a reason! It's delicious.
My sister recently dyed her hair pink, my dad still can't understand why.
Now on to the village! There are so many details that I couldn't capture them all. My grandma has done an amazing job of adding all the little details that really make the village come to life. Plus, she actually made a lot of it! She used to own a ceramic shop, so a lot of my family's decor is handmade. I loved putting it up and having all of the neighbor kids come to see it.
First, The Country...
The boys playing after school
The farm was always my favorite growing up. It was the one thing I could play with (and the train, but that was sold a few years ago).
Next, Main Street
The General Store
I love the little details like the man holding the "now showing" sign in the photo above, or the puppeteer in the photo below.
Even the buildings have icicles, garland, wreaths, and Christmas lights!
It even has stained glass windows. They look so pretty when the light is on!
The Wealthy Area...
This house is known as "The Mansion"
Now on to the Park...
Gotta have a Santa Meet N'Greet!
I didn't get a picture just of the swing, but you'll see it at the end. But here's the merry-go-round.
The ice rink
A look down Main Street
And now, my favorite area- The Mountain or Woodlands
This cottage is my favorite, and I'd definitely live there. I should have changed the light before I took pictures, because it burned out, but I didn't get to it.
Tree Farm + House
And one of my favorite details- Santa and the reindeer!
You can see the swing in the back left corner.
We usually have two boards this size and just a raised area as the mountain. But we just don't have the space any more. So I improvised by using our large mantel as the mountain area which left plenty of space for everything else.
What do you think?? I love it and have loved spending nights just looking at it, watching the lights, and almost wishing I could just step in to this little world.
