Holiday Decorations Photos

I am not sure if this type thread has been started yet this year, but here goes with my Christmas tree. Since Thanksgiving was such a non-event this year, we selected, put up and decorated our tree that day.
What do your decorations look like?

Here are some shots of the decorations around our condo. SO made the Christmas train out of Fruity Pebbles and melted marshmallows similar to Rice Crispies Treats. the trees are ice cream cones with frosting.

I keep asking my husband to make me a fake staircase that I could decorate each year, but he has yet to do so.
