Christmas Wonderland

I've been to a Christmas Wonderland tonight!!! I couldn't wait to share a few pics of my friend's house with you. We had to hurry over this week because the decorations are all starting to come down on Monday! Dawn out does herself each year.

The pictures below show maybe half of her trees in her home. Not only are the 14+ trees amazing, but the entire house is breathtaking-tables, mantel, floor under the trees, counters, bathrooms...even the toilet gets a Christmas treatment. Oh...and the outside of her home is decorated beautifully too! It is truly AMAZING how this wonderful lady decorates for Christmas! Her hard work brings much joy to those who visit; and she helps you remember the true meaning of Christmas!
Dawn has a name for each tree displayed on a sign for guests to see. I should have her here with me to dictate all of the information for each tree, but I'll do my best:

Her new "Chocolate Delite" tree:
Her main tree on a rotating stand:
Here's the former-teaching team in front of her red tree....yes, a red tree!!! It's called "Merry Meadowland" with the green ornaments:
Here's my favorite--the Gingerbread Tree
The silver tree with pink ornaments:
Dept. 56 tree:
We got so tickled about the "Flocked Tree." Dawn was telling us about how she bought it flocked, but wanted more snow on it...so in September she was out in her driveway spraying more snow on her tree! Her neighbor later said she was wondering what she was doing!
Another favorite of mine--her Grinch tree in the bathroom!
Her white tree:
Her travel tree:
Here's a pic of under one of her trees...see what I mean about how she decorates even under the tree!?!?!?! Impressive!

The pictures just do not do them justice! Did you notice all of the tree toppers? Wow! Each time you visit...you see something new. It is truly a Christmas Wonderland. Thank you Dawn for all the joy you bring to others! You're the BEST!
