Winter Wonderland

11/30/2011

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the home I grew up in is slowly transforming into a winter wonderland by my parents. Each year, my dad puts together these tiny Christmas villages, with fake snow, tiny street lights, the whole nine yards. He gets a new accessory each season and he even puts a house or two in our bedrooms for when we come home for the holidays. The house looks magical and I can't wait for my niece and nephew to see it!

I love Christmas and all the decorations! My mom used to set up a little village, my sister and I would always play with the fake snow!

I do a Christmas village every year, too. I started when I was little because I wanted to live in a quaint little village, and now it's tradition at my house.
