Albany--  You can see some of Albany's most beautifully decorated houses. The 12th annual Tour of Homes is coming up Sunday.

Walking into the Lane home, is like walking onto the pages of the Southern Living magazine. Every inch of the Russell Road home is decorated for the holidays.

Pat Lane was surprised to find out who nominated her home for this year's Tour of Homes. "My husband agreed to show our home without telling me. When he finally told me, I thought he was joking."

"She was a little mad at me," said Rob Lane with a laugh. Then, Pat realized she only had three weeks to decorate. So Pat and her husband Rob got to work, way before most of us were planning our Thanksgiving menu.

"We worked for hours making sure people would enjoy our home on this year's tour." The Lane home proves a personal touch makes all the difference. "I have a Christmas tree in every room, and it matches the colors and decorations of that room."

"We have lights and greenery everywhere," said Pat. "Their cheap and beautiful." The Lane home is just one stop on Sunday's tour and just one taste of Christmas in the South. Tickets cost $15 in advance and $20 on the day of the tour.

The tour is December 8th from 1:00 until 5:00 PM. And, ticket proceeds benefit the American Heart Association.
