It's the Most Wonderful Time of Year!!

Josh and I put up our Christmas tree after I got off of work last night. Here's a few pictures of us hanging ornaments and a picture of the final product.
Josh actually started hanging the house lights the day before Thanksgiving so that his little sister could see them when she came to our house that night. We have a row of color LED lights and a row of LED icicles lining the front of the roof. Then Thanksgiving night I wraped our mini chrismas trees in the front yard with colored LED lights and put up the white swirl christmas trees. And finally, tonight Josh and I finished off our decorations with the deer in our front flowerbed, which were a black friday purchase from Garden Ridge (the only black friday purchase that I actually made this year since I over slept).This is a picture of our beautiful tree that we have in the front yard. This picture does not do it justice. It's leaves are so vibrant in the fall when it changes colors. When I took this picture, it had a little bit green, yellow, and orange.
I took these two pictures for possible computer background wallpapers.
And finally these are pictures of the flat iron travel case that I made for my sister Jennie for a late birthday present.

Wow, you guys have been really busy! Just when I was thinking you weren't going to get around to blogging you made up for it with all these great projects. Love the tree and the lights and ornaments in the front yard. And I have to say I absolutely love the tree with all the color. That is a cute travel bag you made for Jennie too. Very crafty woman!

How festive your home looks, can you come down and get mine loooking that way? I did get some snowmen out on display inside the house but that is it so far. LOVE your pics of your beautiful fall tree, especially the one where it looks like you are looking up thru the tree, very cool! Jennie's b-day present turned out cute.
