It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Decorations are up and the Christmas feeling has filled the house.  Now, I’m getting excited!

The kids can have their “fun tree” cause I am enjoying my “elegant tree”.

There were a few mishaps but surprisingly enough, not as many as usual.

My favorite ornament this year which came with my cowboy boots I got last year.  Love them!

As the kids are getting older, we are moving farther and farther away from the frivolous things of Christmas and more into the deep meaning of it.  I want them to focus on others this year and less on themselves.  What a job I have ahead of me!

I try and add a couple of new decorations to my home each year and Pinterest helped in a huge way!

A set of wreathes I made this year for the front hall.

So I mentioned yesterday that I was getting a little flustered with Christmas lights I was trying to take pictures of.. here is a hint at what I was attempting that didn’t work out like I had perfectly imagined it would.

My grandmother is an absolutely crafty, artsy, creative woman who can paint, crochet, stitch and weave together just about anything imaginable.  These were made for each of her great-grandchildren on their first Christmases.  I love her so much and want to be her when I grow up!!  (Right, Dawn?!)

The first Christmas that Lucas and I were married, she made these for us.

Also another crafty crochet thing my grandmother makes every year to give to someone who hasn’t received them from her yet.

Funny story…  when my grandmother found out how touched Lucas was to recieve something so special from her she makes a point to spoil him on his birthday each year.  For my birthday, I get $10 from her but for Lucas, she sends him $25.  She loves my husband!

This Santa Claus has been apart of my Christmas since as far back as I can remember.

Mrs. Claus is always found nearby.  My sister has forgotten that I was the one to have them, I believe she will steal them next time she is here.  That’s okay cause I know she will love them as much as I do.

Our neighborhood Christmas light show is next weekend and so all our neighbors are hanging lights and decorating their homes for the hundreds of cars that drive through every year.
