The Simmons Family is turning their home into a holiday scene, complete with Santa Claus and flying reindeer. The family has been collecting pieces since 1980.

The "Snow Village" has grown into an entire metropolitan area over the years and is overtaking the living room.

Margaret Simmons enjoys the family tradition of decorating and said, "We started buying five or six pieces at a time. That stopped. My husband said we would have to move out."

The Simmons family says they're not going anywhere, just monitoring how many new pieces they buy each year.
