Christmas Decorations

Now that Thanksgiving is over, and the Christmas season has officially begun (yay!) I wanted to share some photos of our decorations. My mom and I spent Friday afternoon decorating the house, and we spent Friday night crafting :) 

This year, we decided to be a little more relaxed with the decorations and only put out some of the things.

One of the first things we do is replacing the regular china with the Spode. Every year we do it a bit differently, and every year, we forget that the Santa only fits on the top shelf, and we have to re arrange the middle to make him fit!

I made these candles last year, but my mom kept them because she liked them so much! And of course, she has some of her birthday cards up too :)

This Santa was our neighbors' and when they moved to Florida, they gave it to us. No matter how "uncluttered" we are doing Christmas this year, this Santa is always there! And of course, Ben is looking at me in the background wondering why I am photographing everything in house!

I love this nativity scene. Its from Willow Tree. I would love to have one like this when I grow up and have my own house. But for now, I have my mom's old one, that my dad's mom gave her, which I'll set up and share this week :)

Well, tomorrow I'll be back to share our snowman room, and our crafts on Wednesday.

Then Thursday is the start of December Daily!
