It's Christmas time in the Lyon household! I LOVE this time of year! The smell in the air is undeniable, there's a crazy special feeling all around...I should probably write a new Christmas hit song all about it:).

Ever since Justin and I tied the knot (back in 2002) I had been trying to incorporate some modern elements with our Christmas decor and no matter what I did it just didn't feel right. So this year I gave in completely and went 100% cheesy traditional and allowed all the red, green, and white to overflow! I have to admit that everything feels right now that my house is all decked out this way and I think I'm going to let it stick from now on!:)

Obviously I shot these photos a few days ago...the sign should read, "Santa comes in 15 days".
christmas002.jpgNo, we did not take that photo of Santa. Yes, Justin did inherit it when he was a manager at Abercrombie from way back when. YES, Justin use to be a manager for Abercrombie at one point in his life! Random, I know, but that poster photo has become a tradition in our Lyon family Christmas decor, LOL!
christmas003.jpgMy boys died over this train we bought to put around the tree, it was the one thing Hudson insisted on getting!

christmas004.jpgThis is my all time favorite Christmas tree ornament.

WOW! Love it!!! Fact, I worked for, and was "terminated" from Abercrombie when I was in college. I missed work one day because I was snowed in up at Park City. The lady actually said "I'm going to have to terminate you." :)

"Manager at Abercrombie...." HAHHA that is awesome. SO not what I expected. Does he still mist your doorway with cologne every 30 minutes?
