Our House Decorated for Christmas This Year 2012

Finally Got Most of It Done!
Had no idea how I wanted to decorate our new house this year....our last home was done in an "Old Fashion" style with a sweet front porch, two story, more of a traditional looking home to decorate with. This house is more of a Mediterranean style. I didn't want to have to buy all new stuff either. So I pondered and pondered how to utilize what I had already. Where we live at the end of a cul-de-sac, our driveway goes down a bit of a hill, so the front yard is mostly on a hill. We have a wide sidewalk entryway from the driveway which is where I have my garden bench.
So I got this idea to do like a park setting as the hill up to the road starts right behind the bench. It is now done other than more lights I would like to put up, but I still need to do Christmas shopping and get the house cleaned up before our guests arrive Christmas day, and so running out of time! So this is it! Done Done! There are seven homes in our neighborhood and we are the only house that is decorated! This sweet town of Mt. Dora is so decked up for the Christmas holiday, we wonder if our neighborhood is the ba-humbug kinda of neighborhood! Not even a wreath on their doors! Weird!
Oh well our house sure sparkles! :)
This is our "Park" like Christmas!
From Our House to Yours
With Love! :)
Christmas at the Willhoite's!
We had so much fun decoratig this year!

 Our grapevine lighted Christmas mailbox.

Do you know what the word Joy means?'s the way we should live....
J=Jesus, who we should put First in our life and obey his word...
O=Others, putting others SECOND by loving and serving others.
Y=Yourself, love yourself as God loves you..................................
By keeping Jesus and Others first in your life, you feel the Joy of Jesus in your heart and Soul!
You will be the person God wanted and chose you to be, and you will love who you are!
Jesus, Others, Yourself! .........See!!!! :) ♥
Took these today.....loved the shadows across the lawn from the sun....our
"Christmas Park Theme" decorating is even pretty during the day!
Well, that's it for the outside.....we love it!
My honey loves to sit outside and just look at it...

When I have time, and I'm so running out of it....I'll share some of the inside of the house. :)
