Everything's done. Christmas music plays almost thru the house. I've even watched several Christmas movies already, The Holiday, Christmas Vacation, and Home Alone. 

I've been using the same tree for years now. But it's not working out so well this year. Its on its last limb. And I'm still working on it. Plan B: get a real tree. 

There's a lot of stockings hung all in a row on the mantle. Every year another stocking is added. So there are a mixture of stockings.  It makes it fun. 

Shiny and bright ornaments in a crystal bowl centered on the table for now while I wait patiently to use my Christmas wear.

My Christmas books are front and center.  A tradition that we read The Newborn King before we open gifts. Because that's really what it's all about.  It's our best gift ever that Christ the Savior is Born. 

I even decorate the dog every year. She's always the first one ready. You may take Santa pictures with your kids. But this is our kid now. And it's her Santa picture, but without Santa. 


  1. Everything looks so cute! The Holiday is one of my favorite Christmas movies ever. I was just thinking the other day about how I haven't seen it in years and need to watch it!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up :) I love that you have a row of festive stockings!

  3. I love your pretty table runner with the bowl of's lovely! Also, I've never read A Newborn King and I may need to add to my ever growing list. Merry Christmas!!!
