Christmas Decorations Part Two

Here are a couple more decorative things we did that I hadn't taken pictures of when I did the last decorations post.

Mom went around our backyard and picked out some fresh greens to use on our mailbox.  We're so lucky to have a magnolia tree....it was one thing I loved about our house when we first saw it.  

This puppy now thinks the couch is his since my parents were in town and let him up there.  By all means little Mills.  Mills now weighs 93.1 pounds by the way.  Big bubba!  The vet says he looks good and isn't overweight.  The breeder always told us he would be between 90-100 pounds.  Guess he finally decided to fully grow these last few months after holding steady at 78 pounds for awhile.  

I love our new Frontgate garland.  I had gotten the 6' originally and I'm so glad I took it back and got the 9'.  This looks quite a bit better than my previous Michaels $5 garland.  I like to add something special to our Christmas decorations each year and this was it for 2014.

That is the garland I've been looking for to put around the top of our bookshelves!!!! I love that it's pre-lit.

Man, you are really putting my house to shame. :) I seriously need a good pre-lit garland for our mantle, but I don't have an outlet that is close enough by that it wouldn't look weird. What do you do about that?

I'm obsessed with your garland! A new one is at the top of my list for next year.

I love that garland!! I may have to get one, as my Michael's ones look pitiful! :) Also, I'm coming over to steal some leaves from your magnolia tree!

It looks amazing, and I agree with everyone that I am so jealous about your magnolia tree! What a perfect addition to your mailbox. ;)
