Christmas 2010 Decor

DON'T FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY. Holiday Card Design from the Sweetest Impressions! Ends Friday, December 10th. ONLY 1 ENTRY SO FAR.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here's what our Christmas decorations look like this year.

My son helping to decorate our little 3 foot tree. One day we'll have the 6-7 footer. It's so fun that my son can help now.

A little JOY sign on our door. Trade from Frills.
Our stockings: I made my husband's several years ago. My great grandma made mine when I was 3. My mom put my son's name on the last one and I hope to add more to it someday soon.

Our mantle: I have so many miscellaneous items from gifts from friends, students, kids I watched at day care etc. So I did my best to arrange them attractively on my mantle since I don't have very much other holiday decor.

 Here's a close-up of our Nativity scene that's on the right side of our mantle.

This year I put our tree by the window even though it's barely tall enough to see even on my large storage container stand. I love seeing Christmas trees through people's windows though.
On the left I created a little display of all the holiday books and CDs we have. I plan to read them or listen to them over the next few weeks.
Our little snowman advent calendar (maybe one day I'll make one for my kids). When I was little we had one where we put mini candy canes for each day so we took turns on who got the candy cane. Oh I'm writing this on the 6th so don't worry I'm keeping up with the calendar =D


My son wanted his picture taken by the tree too. I'll be getting better one of him by the tree later.

Stay tuned - tomorrow another giveaway!
