Our Christmas Home Tour

I realized that I haven't posted our holiday decor this year!  We set out maybe half of what we typically decorate with and I've enjoyed the simplicity.  It was just enough without being overwhelming and this pregnant mama worked hard all afternoon to decorate with the items we chose.  

Our side table nativity with a photo of our own little babe.
 Christmas cards, we usually just use some ribbon and clothes pins to display them.
 A pinterest inspired chalkboard message.
 Our reindeer friend, we move him around each year and he gets a new perch.
 Our sleigh candy dish, we didn't fill it with sweets this year but we put our bells from the Polar Express inside.
 Holiday candle and some greenery on our coffee table.
 Our 2014 tree.
 Mantle display and stockings.
Some special ornaments, new to our tree. This is our annual Lenox Santa.  Unfortunately the company had some issues in manufacturing so they sent them out twice without the date.  I've been assured they are correcting the problem and everyone will get one with 2014 stamped on the hat but he won't be sent until mid January.
 This one is hard to see, it's a 2014 mirrored ornament with our first ultra sound photo from August.  This is by far the most special memory from this year.
 I've been wanting a "J" ornament on our tree.  I couldn't find one that I loved so I made one using a shatterproof ornament and vinyl letter.
 Lady's ornament since she is new to our family, it's a personalized porcelain bone from Lenox.  Every time we show it to her she thinks it's a treat.
 My mother in law gifted this glass ornament to us last year in my stocking so it's his first year on our tree.
 And this folks is a picture of Lady on Christmas Eve morning.  We camped in front of the fire and tree overnight with our tv set for a Christmas movie marathon.  It was glorious, and she got to join us for the fun.  She doesn't get to sleep with us in bed so this was a huge treat and she loved laying on her daddy.
I'm sure I'll be posting our holiday fun later in the week.  Until then, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
