Our house at Christmas

Hi! I am very late to the Christmas home tour that Kelly is having but I figured oh well, better late than never. I love Christmastime and decorating for it is so fun! I have really been enjoying checking out all the wonderful decorations that everyone linked up and shared too. (WOW- some of them look like they belong in a magazine.) SO here is a quick tour of what we have out at our house. Remember that I have a two year old that loves to make his own little adjustments to everything everyday, especially the tree. 

Here is the tree and a few on my favorite ornaments...

Excuse the awful cords, I need a different extension cord so I can hide it better. 
I added this spray of balls into the bow this year for a little something fun! 

We got this one on our honeymoon. It has sand and shells from Nassau, Bahamas. 
I really love all the ornaments made by my boys.
Carter and his teachers made this one with his fingerprints at his preschool. 
Cooper made this one this year. 
Colton made this one when he was in Kinder. 
Here is the mantel where the stockings are hung with care... 
The  baskets on the hearth are full of Christmas books and toys. 

A few things on top of our entertainment center. They are usually lit up(even though they are not in this pic) and yes this tv is usually on . =) I have snow globes in the shelves. 

Random living room wall. 
This guy is on the wall as you walk in the front door.

The table in my entryway. Hard to tell but this stuff is all glittery. 
I have this Precious Moments nativity scene out for my boys to play with. 
I love my Willow Tree nativity scene but I need to figure out a  way to dress it up.

I have these two simple Jim Shore Santas in a niche as you walk into the room.

On the bar in the kitchen 
The stove area. It is very simple but this are gets a lot of use so I am not sure what to do here.  =)
This wreath hangs on the back door in our kitchen.
This is my boys' bathroom. They have a small tree with little ornaments they picked out. Not much else in there except Santa hand towels and an elf nightlight. Oh and they stuck some clings on the mirror.
LOVE this. It sits on my front porch. 

My little reindeer roasting marshmallows with Santa in the front yard. Colton says he is the tall buck, Cooper is the one in the hat and Carter is the smaller one. =)

Okay, that's it for now. ;) Hope you enjoyed your quick tour of our Christmas decorations!! Have a very Merry Christmas!!
