Time to clean and organize

Every year after Christmas I start a major cleaning/decluttering/reorganization around the house. This year we started in Meghan's room. It is looks so good and we plan to finish it up today. We rearranged the whole room and it looks so good. Not sure where I will head next probably the game room or my closet.

Anyone else get this urge this time of year?

My Christmas Village

Here are some pictures of my Christmas village that hubby and I started when we were first married. It has grown quite large over the years. It is one of my favorite things...once it is set up. It takes quite a long time to get it just right each year.

Christmas Tree and Mantle

This is my mantle in the living room! I had trouble getting a good picture of it....I think it is much prettier in person.
Our Christmas Tree!!!! It is the biggest tree we have ever gotten. Most of our ornaments go on this tree. We do have another tree in our game room that the kids put some of their ornaments on too.
