I thought I would share a few pictures of my house decorated for Christmas...

I'm in love with this wreath I found at Trader Joe's! It makes me happy.

Each year I try to get one new Christmas thing. This year I purchased burlap ribbon from Ballard Designs to drape on the tree and I love it!

Ho Ho Ho!
The mantle is always something I struggle decorating...I hear that a lot, so that helps. I pinterest the crap out of mantles, but I'm never able to execute the stunning ones I see. I have some topiaries and a big family photo...that's about it. It needs something, but for this season, twinkle lights, berries, and Santa will do just fine :)

My mom gave me this nativity scene for Christmas when Tim and I were engaged. It's so special!
It was given to her by her aunt and I always remember it being displayed at Christmas. So delicate... I also remember playing with it. My kids do not get to do that :) They have their plastic little people nativity scene for that.
As my boys are older, and we're doing homeschool, I've had the wonderful opportunity to devote the month of December to learning about the birth and life of Jesus and what it means for us. I would love to commit to doing more advent activites next year. We still have fun with Santa and Dobby (our elf), in fact, I think Tim and I have just as much fun as the kids. It's been a neat experience to circle it back around to Jesus every day. Something I should be doing every day of the year, right?
