The reason for my lack of posts…..(warning ~ photo heavy!)

Christmas Our House

A few days ago, we experienced a very lovely situation here at the Moll house.  A fabulous master bathroom flood, that happened sometime during the night (while we were sleeping), that we didn't find out about until morning.  Not only was  the carpet in our bedroom soaked, the carpet was soaked downstairs in our family room.  Fabulous, right?  Oh, and did I mention that my laptop was on the coffee table directly below the master bath?  It's toast too.  Merry Christmas! 

We called our insurance company and they were awesome.  They were at our house within in a hour and had issued us a check for the repairs.  Weird how fast it all works now.  They sent a crew out to pull up carpet, rip out drywall and get huge dryers and de-humidifiers set up in our family room, master bedroom, and master bath.  This was yesterday morning.  So, for 24 hours now, our house has sounded like an airport.  It's crazy noisy.  Our family room is taped off from the rest of the house and  everything from that room was moved to the dining area.  It was making me crazy so I sort of moved everything around so I could at least function.  It's Christmas for heaven's sake!  I worked hard on decorating this year, and I wasn't going to let it all go to waste! :)  Here is the lovely family room:

Pretty fabulous, huh?

Here's the view from the other side of the plastic curtain:

Charming, isn't it.  Now imagine the sound that goes along with it!  All those fans going. 

While I was taking pics, I decided to just go ahead and document how the house looks this year, for Christmas.

Notice the plastic…..it's totally the new xmas decor! Also, notice the kid's xmas tree that is usually in the family room, is now in the dining area!  Love it!

    Your house looks fabulous! I LOVE the tree at the end of the dining room table. I’m no Martha, but from the pictures it looks great there!
