Finally got our real tree

We have 7 artificial trees up in the house (I know a lot, but I love them) and this weekend we went out to get our real tree that the presents go under. We picked a great one, in my opinion!  The kids had a blast. Then we go drive around and look at the Christmas lights.  We headed over to a place called Spanktown Road and saw the ultimate display. We do it each year, but this year we hit the jackpot because when we got there we found out it was their Open House weekend. They invited us in, food, drinks...more decorations. It was much fun and just so nice to see people have the Christmas Spirit in their hearts!

Spanktown road display. This is a private residence.


I think I counted 5 different nativity scenes.


What would a display be without Snoopy!

They have over 200 Santas in the living room.



This Santa sings and dances. 




Sharing some snacks with others.


This is their basement all set up for the open house. 

So much fun!  

What traditions do you have with your family?

What fun! We have 2 artificial trees in our house. We have allergies and we just can't have the real ones inside anymore. I did get a real one for the front porch though.

I love going to see Christmas lights, especially at private residences where people all out just for the fun of it.

Hi Melissa -- SEVEN trees... now that's a lot! ;-) We have our large tree, a smaller Jesse tree, and the kids each have a miniature tree in their rooms. We are staying home for Christmas, like we always do... I like the peaceful holiday and no traveling! Thanks for stopping by my blog - looks like you guys are really enjoying the Christmas season.
