Christmas is coming soon!!!


I can't believe we are so close to christmas! It seems like we just put away our tree and now we are decorating for a new season.
This year has been full of ups and downs and I am blessed to have a beautiful family and my first son!!
This time last year I would have never imagined I'd have a boy!!!
So we started decorating last Friday after thanksgiving and it usually takes us a few weekends to get it all done.
We have tons of stuff and there isn't enough room in the house to put it all up.
As usual my pink christmas tree goes up in the dining room each year and the ornament wreath I made last year as my table centerpiece.
I decorated this small table with a few items and as I went along I liked it more and more.
Most things are thrift store finds or Dollar Tree ornies.
This is our family tree. The christmas village is almost all up. I'd love to add some fake snow, but we have kittens so not sure how that would go!! We have many vintage ornaments and mementos on the tree as well. My favorite are those the kids bring home!! I love to decorate my kitchen cabinets with their christmas artwork and ornaments they make on the family tree.
We started on the outside and it is coming along very nicely!!
I really enjoyed blog hopping and looking at the lovely homes decorated for christmas!! Can't wait to see more!!!
Love,
Jenn~

Wow.. Everything looks beautiful Jenn! I keep trying to get my tree put together, and it's been a lengthy process... We put the tree up one night... Then tonight we attempted to put up the lights. They worked BEFORE I put them on the tree, and then when we finally got them all up and strung just perfect around the tree... And surprise!.. THEY DIDN'T WORK! (Sigh).. So we'll have to head out and buy another set of lights, as soon as we can, and for now, maybe The Grinch and Shrek will cheer us up on the tv tonight! (0;
