Come on in, we're all ready for Christmas

It's MacchiOTTo's first Christmas so I've pulled out all the stops in my decorating this year.  I've hung up lOTTs of lights, baked up lOTTs of cookies, wrapped up lOTTs of gifts, and mailed out lOTTs of Christmas cards.  We are ready to celebrate and eat and enjoy the company of family and friends this holiday season.  So come on in, I've got a pot of coffee on, take your time and look around at our house all lite up and ready for the big day.  

I used only white lights throughout the house this year.  And, I like to use a lot of red colored decorations specifically in my dining room.  As you can see one of our Christmas trees is in the corner of this room.  I love having evening dinners in this room you can look out the front window onto the front lawn and when you add some soft Christmas music playing in the background it makes for a very warm and inviting evening.
I decorated my doorways this year with lit garlands.  I added some ornaments and beads to match the color scheme in each room.
In the opposite corner of the dining room I put a lit garland around my curio cabinet.
 Anywhere I could find to put decorations I did like here on top of the coat hooks by the front door I have some of my snowmen displayed.
 And in the living room there is a lit garland on the mantel with lots of candles, pictures and other decorations.  Our family Christmas tree is also in this room.
Well I hope you enjoyed your visit and from Ott, E, MacchiOTTo and myself we want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!!!!
