Christmas with The Dirt Queen!

(I started this post, and realized I left out some of the pictures! Then I wasn't able to move them where I wanted! Sorry about that!) Ok...well now I am all off kilter! I like to go in order, and that didn't work here...so lets see where we are.... We are at The Dirt Queen's house checking out her festive decor! They have lived in this house almost 2 years. This is the "old" tree from the "old" house. The ceilings in the living room were 8'-0", and this tree always seemed huge. In the new house the ceilings are really high, and this tree looks so small in the kitchen!
The Dirt Queen must have 10 sets of Christmas dishes (I have none!). She displays them in her china cabinet over the holidays.
She also decorates outside...go figure! I haven't decorated my backyard, that would just be one more thing for Tide (the dog) to destroy!!!!
Fancy little decorations for the birds! They seem to enjoy them!
Each birdhouse got its own set of decorations!
She has a great little village on display on the entertainment center.
*********** Ok...now this is where I was when I realized I had left some pictures out! LOL!.....so this was the actual beginning of the post! *******************************
I hope ya'll aren't getting tired of all the Christmas posts over here. I do have stuff blooming in the garden, and we will get back to that in January, BUT its CHRISTMAS and I love it! Christmas only comes once a year and I like to enjoy every second of it! You only have a few more days...so ya'll just hang in there.....blooms shall resume shortly!
Sigh....this picture....it just cracks me up! This is actually one of my favorite pictures ever...as bad as it is! This is my and my brother, I am on the right...hard to tell since we both look like boys!!!! I was around 4 years old when this picture was taken. I had never had a haircut at this point in my life...so the mullet look was all natural! My hair grew so slow when I was little, I didn't have a full head of hair until 4 or 5! It looks like I took some scissors to it and cut it myself...but no....that's just how it was. The poor Dirt Queen had to take me out in public with that messed up hairdo! Besides the hair...the clothes really crack me up...the Dirt Queen swears that those clothes were in style! The front entrance to my parents house This is the "new" tree....it is 12 or 13 feet I think...it is pretty tall! My parents have lived in this house about a year and a half...and I like it...but I really loved the other house. It was out in the woods, and really peaceful.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my parents home! My family will be having Christmas here! We will have a wonderful time tomorrow night with The Hunter, and then again Friday night when my brother and sister in law come in to town on Friday. The Hunter has to work Friday night, so we will celebrate tomorrow night.
Let's not forget the reason for the season!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, that is blessed in many, many ways. Be sure to enjoy all of those you love, and cherish each memory that is made!

Your parents home is very nicely decorated, how fun to have 2 trees to decorate.
I love your Santa picture. I'm going to make my girls get Santa pictures for as long as possible, they are some of my favorites of my kids.
Have a very Happy and Merry Christmas!

The Dirt Queen must REALLY love Christmas. One would need another home just for the Christmas decor. It's just beautiful and the birdhouses...WoW! I'm so in awe that you have things blooming now and in January. Everything is brown here except for the winter wheat which is the brightest green you've ever seen.

You have a Merry Christmas and God bless ya'll!!!
