Decorations Everywhere!

The house is "beginning to look a lot like Christmas!"  Finally got the tree finished (can't tell much with the flash overriding the lights).... but it's complete... I think..... The Mrs. seems to put another ornament on there almost every time she walks by.. or rearranges the ones that are already on there.

As you can tell, it's a "sentimental" tree... we still have some bulbs from her tree way back to when SHE was a little girl (those near the top);  and of course lots of "hand-made" ornaments from our kids (now in their 40's) and our grandkids (all now in their 20's)....

 
And the mantle has been sufficiently covered in angels and Santa's...
 

 And the bookcases are covered in snow-people of all varieties...
 
 
And the buffet "table" is covered from one end to the next in the Christmas village that has grown from year to year for quite a few years now.   
 
 
 So I'd say we are ready to finally begin the ever important SHOPPING and WRAPPING of PRESENTS!!
