9 degrees of Charlie Brown Christmas

This past weekend, our family enjoyed a road trip to the Gaylord Texan Resort on Lake Grapevine, near Dallas, TX. The main attraction at the resort is the ICE exhibit. Charlie Brown Christmas is the theme this year and we braved 9 degree temperature to view it! Armed with mega parkas, we entered the 9 degree facility that housed the amazing ice sculptures created by artisans from Harbin, China.

After our frigid tour, we warmed up in the resort, taking in the fabulous Christmas decorations. It was an amazing sight.

Our Halls Are Now Decked!

The Christmas decor is up!

First stop is the Americana/traditional dining room. I stuck to the reds and greens in this room, as well as the more traditional ornaments on the smaller tree. Many of the ornaments are passed down, hand crafted, and the ever popular Hallmark ornaments. 

For the living room, I went with the bold Peacock theme from last year, but added a little more bling here and there.

Pulling the Peacock theme to the front of the house, is the wreath on the front door.
 Hubby has been busy putting up the outdoor lights as well. All in all our home is brimming over with Christmas cheer and I am loving it!
