Our House at Christmas...

I thought I'd share some of Christmas in our house...
 


Tons of Christmas books!!




Lucy and Gus are even decked out for Christmas!



A little greenery here and there...
 
 
 
Baby Jesus has been out since last year - he was never packed away. My little Oliver insisted we keep him out and almost daily throughout the year, Oliver would push a chair over to the shelf to peek up at Baby Jesus. He'd then gently take him from his manger and cradle him in his little hand and he'd snuggle him against his cheek. Baby Jesus is always with us so I believe it is fitting that we didn't pack him away for the year! Jesus is with us throughout the year - not just at Christmastime.
 


Our elves!
 
My husband's idea of holiday decor!

A carnival glass compote with pink, purple, teal, and silver bulbs.
The snowman has similar colors on him! This is on the kitchen table.
 


The boys' bedroom is a hunting lodge/outdoorsy theme so they have a hunting tree in their room!
 

More from the boys' room!

Claire's little pink chair in her bedroom with her pillow "Visions of Sugarplums" on it!


Claire's own tree - lots of pink - decorated with bears (for our Claire Bear) and cupcakes!

The kids' felt Christmas tree. See HERE for more!
 
A favorite family tradition every year!

Oliver's big red barn is a permanent fixture in our living room
so I decided to dress it up too this year! The kids loved that I did that!


The kids' artwork hanging by the front door!

 
 
 
Pink, silver, purple, and teal bulbs hanging from garland around the kitchen window. The candy canes on them are glass and were purchased from Bronner's in Frankenmuth, MI.
 
The kids' gingerbread house this year - isn't it fabulous?!?
 

Me and my family - Christmas 2011
