Christmas is around the corner and if you don't believe me, come drive on my street. Over the weekend the residents in our neighborhood decorated their homes with lights, reindeer, snowmen, wooden signs, snowflakes and more. So much more. Clark Griswold, eat your heart out.

As you can see, Chad and I took the understated approach this year.

This isn't exactly what I want for our mantel but it's getting there. I figured I'd put up a photo of what I have so far before we decorate for Christmas this weekend. Of course it'll look a million times nicer with new paint, but that's a project for another month.

This past weekend Chad stained our fence. All of it. Two coats. He worked super hard for two days and I think you'll agree, the mess was worth it. Now we match the neighbors, or at least don't stick out, and have protected wood for the next year or two.
