"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"



Decorated the house this week...


This is our "stocking for Jesus". Christmas Eve we write down our gifts to the Savior for the new year. This is a special tradition for our family.
It's not Christmas until we hang the cow on the tree.


We tied the tree to the top of an end table this year in an effort to make it a bit harder for little hands to reach... but he is persistent.

Ahhhh, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.


Love this chubby star I made a few years ago...

and this new star (thanks for the idea Emily and Melissa).


Of course I had to do another banner.

Check out Tip Junkie- she is doing a virtual tour of homes decorated for the holidays, too fun!

Sitting on the sofa, looking at the tree, with the fireplace on, drinking hot chocolate, and listening to Christmas music... I love this time of year.

Merry Christmas

It all looks SO great and comfy! It's been a week and mine is still not all up! Tomorrow, I'm knocking it all out! I love your glass blocks. I've seen that at Uppercase Living and want to try it.

I love that you were home (and not at the hospital) so that you could decorate for Christmas. It looks so comfy. Where did you find your star around here to modge podge because I want to make one?

Kathryn, it looks so great! Love your banner and all your great photos! I really like that paper on the star, I need to finish mine up!

Melissa said...

OK now I'm inspired. I'll get out all the stuff tomorrow.

When's your little present arriving?
