Holiday Photo Dump

We all decided to pose with the reindeer antlers:

Even Honey was a good sport:

My mother-in-law always decorates her tree w/ a lifetime of memories:

You know what this time of year means???

TIME OFF WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!

I literally cannot wait to have all of my loved ones packed in my home once again this year for a hugondous Christmas lunch. It's 4 days until Christmas and I've done NOTHING to prepare...and I don't even care!

I hope you all have special plans with special people. Everyone deserves that -- especially at the holidays. If you do NOT have a place to be and food to eat, please get in touch with me, we'll have food aplenty!

Also, per our usual, we have no plans for New Year's Eve. I'm thinking we throw a massive party very last minute and beg people to show up ;-) Or maybe we'll steal away and dine somewhere fancy??

I'll leave you with a picture of my goofy husband that he actually gave away as a White Elephant gift at a recent Christmas party...

Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!

Glad Tidings

The Melville home is where it's at during the Christmas season.

I didn't launch my blog until after last Christmas, which was my first as Mrs. Melville, but we went ALL out!

Most of this year's decor is a recreation. Here are some pictures of our home this season:

(J is the present-wrapper in our home!)

By the way, I married the King of Christmas. Jonathan got this love of Christmas naturally from his mother and his late grandfather. Here are some pictures from his parents' house this Christmas:

(This is a 9-foot tree! There is not a spare centimeter for another ornament, either.)

(J's lil sis, Honey)

Here is the Christmas card we mailed this year (in case we didn't have enough money to get you one!):

(Still a little sad we didn't have time to take a funny pic in ugly Christmas sweaters with our fur child, Chloe)

Hope no matter your plans, you have a VERY merry Christmas and a happy New Year! :-)
