I think we finally have our home dudded up for the holidays.
I found some beautiful garlands at JoAnn's last week (60% off!). One for the mirror in the formal living room.
And the china cabinet as well.
We love the bird nests on this one.
Our tree is a "family " tree, with the kids being in charge of decorating. Every year they receive a new ornament from my parents on Thanksgiving. Also new this year are home made bird ornaments.
And a souvenir from our trip to California.
Nothing better than cuddling up under a quilt in front of the fire.
This quilt is made from the Moda Peace on Earth fabric line.
I made 5 of these Christmas stockings a few years ago when I was pregnant with my 3rd and absolutely sure that baby would be our last. Yet, I still saved the pattern and extra fabric - just in case. I think this is proof that deep down I knew we would have one more...and we did (she's almost 2!).
The little blue chalkboard (that was never hung on the pantry door like I intended) has been spruced up as well.
And a little belief in the miracle of the Savior's birth. So grateful we can spend this time of year celebrating Him and his life.
