Mom and Dad's house at Christmas

I just did some decorating at my parent's house today. My mom had already set some Christmas things around. I just decorated the tree and put up some garlands. They have lived in this house for about 8 yrs. It is really pretty and has a great view.
In case you are wondering, those are horns in the arrangement.
The tree has a spirtual theme with angels, nativities, fruit, butterflies etc. No Santas or snowmen like in my house. LOL! I think she would rather me have this theme. Remember my gold tree mom?

Mom, hurry and wrap all of my presents!! he he he! The tree is bare!



Only 5 more days! Merry Christmas!

Another beautiful job, Kristen. I have a gut feeling the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Your moms house is very pretty.
Have a "Merry Christmas".
