Here is a video look at some of the Christmas decorations around our house in 2023: All our decorations are not included in this video, but I did try to hit some of the highlights. Yes, there have been photos as well, but sometimes video can capture just a little more. I had posted this on some of the social media places earlier, but I am posting it here, too, just for good measure.
Mickey Mouse shaped Christmas ornaments hang from Mickey Mouse lights in a doorway in our house for the 2023 Christmas Season. Believe it or not, we do have Christmas decorations that are not shaped like a certain cartoon mouse. But we do also have several that fit that category, too. These are just a small sample of some that Laura ordered online from somewhere or other, and they go nicely on the Mickey lights which have adorned the doorway between our den and kitchen for a while.
Our Christmas tree for 2023 stands proudly in our den, lighting up the night. You might not be able to tell here, but we like lots of lights on our Christmas tree. Lots and lots of lights. The more, the better. Is there a light limit on these things? Thankfully, the new LED lights use a lot less energy than the old lights, so we are not tripping circuit breakers or anything like that.
Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care, as part of our Christmas 2023 decorations in our house. If you know much about us, I am sure you can guess who each stocking belongs to. The football stocking would obviously be Jaylin’s. And it should be obvious that the cowboy boot stocking belongs to Laura, even if you do not see that her name is on it. The stocking on the right is slightly folded over, but you can probably see that it has Mickey Mouse ears and buttons, and that one is mine.
A rocking horse sits in front of a Christmas tree at our house, one of our Christmas 2023 decorations. Christmas decorations have started to spring up all over our house. We have lots of decorations everywhere, and Laura takes care to make sure everything looks just right. Every now and then, new things get added into the mix. This rocking horse was added a couple of years ago, and it goes well in front of a tree full of horse-related ornaments.
Christmas inflatables of Mickey Mouse and Olaf from Frozen are highlighted by a spotlight on a foggy evening in our front yard. We have had our Mickey and Olaf inflatables for some years now, and they add a bit of joy and happiness to our front yard each Christmas season. However, over time their internal lights have died, which makes it difficult to see them at night out here in the wilderness.
