All things Christmas...

Earlier this week we decorated our brand new fake tree...it still feels a little wrong to me...and still doesn't SMELL like Christmas but I am pleased that we bought an artificial one...
We started the night with peppermint hot chocolate...Moses was in bed asleep already...it's so fun to see him come down the morning after we have decorated. :)
We have fun decorations like these...completely toddler proof. :)
Did I mention my love for red birds?
Tree number one...
...covered in fun ornaments like this one...
...and these. :)
Tree number two...covered in all of my red birds. :)
Here is our mantle...I covered lights with the fake snow fluff you buy for Christmas villages. Makes the mantle warm and cozy like. :)
Moses helped decorate trees number three and number four. :)
and this little guy was mine when I was little...Moses loves to play with him. :)

Let's see yours now! :) Leave a link in the comments to your decked out Christmasey home. :)

I love Chistmas trees. I remember every year, Mom and Dad would hand us each our box of ornaments. They were full of ornaments we made or that someone had chosen especially for us. Now my tree is loaded with special memories. Here's the story my tree tells:

Merry Christmas, sweet Johnsen family. LOVE all of your trees and decorations. Can you come over and decorate my house? Still have Thanksgiving stuff to put away. If I could only "turbo" like you. =-)

love the snow on the mantel. i am thinking about something similar for our window boxes, or styrofoam balls in various sizes (fake snow balls) with lights behind or underneath. who knows? love the birdies, too.
