it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas up in here!
And I couldn’t be happier!

This is the tree in our living room at the back of the house, where we spend the most time each day.
I’ll put YBW’s and my pressies under this tree for us to open Christmas morning.

Pencil tree in the basement. I’ll be enjoying this as I wrap pressies and watch Christmas movies!

The big tree in the front room will go up when the boys come home this weekend. Their pressies will go under this tree to be opened Christmas Eve before they leave for their mother’s house.

Thing 2 and I found these trees when we were out one afternoon and I absolutely could not resist them! The kind of remind me of Dr Seuss trees. I just hope the Grinch doesn’t show up and stuff them up the chimney!

I absolutely adore Christmas kissing balls!

YBW found this ball of cotton when we were in Savannah, and we knew it would be a new kissing ball. It took me a bit to find the perfect ribbon to make the bow, but it turned out perfectly. When anyone walks into our house, it’ll be there waiting…and let me assure you, I’ll be right there under it, waiting for my kisses.

All the baby Jesuses are out…but you’ll have to wait to see them.
Oh how I love Christmas! I can’t wait to start wrapping pressies!

One thought on “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

  1. I found my little Christmas tree at a great craft sale ten years ago.
    It was special since it had little, burgundy calico ribbons, “rusty” bells, little nests and a few other decorations, Robyn. It sits atop the black cabinet my TV is inside of. I added a gold ribbon that connects a tall snowman and a “village” of snowmen. šŸ™‚
    My grandies came over and spread angels, nutcrackers, Raggedy Ann and Andy, etc around! Once I had a great room with a large shelf with a big sleigh and other “big” decorations. I downsized into a small, cozy apt where I have only one tub each of three seasons worth of decorations: spring/Easter, fall/Halloween and Thanksgiving, plus winter/December.
