I wanted to share that we are trying, despite our busy lives, to decorate a bit for Christmas. I took pictures with my phone, so the color is poor, but everything does look very festive and sweet.
We hung our annual Oregon wreath on the front door. Daddy's mom sends us this as a way of adding a bit of Oregon into our holiday no matter where we might be. They are always beautiful and are one of my favorite things to receive.
We have our advent calendar that I bought on etsy.com. It is lovely and easy for little hands to handle and not break.
Stocking hung with care on the mantle. A handmade Christmas tree made from our Boy's sweet hands, and all of our annual Christmas cards displayed, showing our ever growing family over the years.
A little village on the piano...who Barbie is gracing with her presence.
We put a Charlie Brown train around the tree. Daddy said this was for the kids, but we know it was really about him. He loves it.
Our tree this year is a hodge podge of old and new and homemade ornaments. I love it.
We made a wreath snowman in the dining room...which turned out adorable. I have one to put up outside as well, but haven't, for lack of time. Maybe over the weekend.
We have our kids gallery hung with lots of Christmas crafts over our kitchen window and cards adorning the outside of our cabinets.
It really is a great season.
