And this isn't McConnell's first time around the epic decorating block. You may remember her Halloween decor, which went viral across the internet back in October.

It's now a Monster House 👹

A post shared by Christine McConnell (@christinehmcconnell) on

This is no Christmas miracle folks, there were hours and hours of intense planning and execution that went into creating this magical home.

She explained to ABC News that she spent a week and a half fine tuning her ideas, and even used Photoshop to play around with different ideas. McConnell then got to work and created and cut all the elements out of foam board.

This creative genius even got up on the roof to execute this difficult (and not to mention, dangerous) step. She used tied up ropes to create that icing effect.

McConnell really remembered everything...right down to the adorable costumes she designed and created for her nieces to play Hansel and Gretel. This entire creation is truly picture perfect, and we would love McConnell to stop by our house next (hint, hint).
