Christmas 2009 house tour. :)

First of all...
sorry for 8 million photos.
this really should be 3 posts...but because a certain
nine month old hates my computer...
it will be one long one.
Ok?
Second, once again I am a slacker.
The winner of Jeanne Winters giveaway is:
YOU!
Contact Jeanne to claim your prize. :)
I also owe you the winner of November's cupcake! :)
I will let you know soon...I have to dig around to find the comment that won.
Click on the cupcake on the right to figure out what I am talking about. :)
Now on with the tour.
I am in love with my mantle this year.
We have to repaint the living room and dining room...
so we plan to do it in January...and add some crown molding too.
This is why I went all out...
Made those cute houses out of cardboard...
maybe once I have a saw I will make some longer lasting ones...
Our cute tree and santa sack. :)
I made this one...
we have another that has our last name on it but I wanted a second sack
...one for each boy.
Don't you love my mini-marshmallow snow?
My countdown sign from Julie...and Aaron's advent.
Fun snowflakes and pom-poms...
We also made krumkage a Norwegian cookie...our first of the season.
Last year we had a problem with abducted baby Jesus...
(from our non-child proof nativity)
...so we got Moses this one.
Both boys love it and play with it off and on all day.
Can you spot the two animals that seem out of place?
Here's the whole room...
And this serving piece is in the center of the table...
on the top are Christmas treats....
middle is Christmas cards...past and present...
bottom is Christmas books.
We get each boy a new Christmas book each year...
with them out like this we remember to read a few each day.
More pretty snowflakes...
The tree lit up...
A family portrait...
I love to find cute personalized ornaments for the boys.
TV top...blocks from Target...snowman from HERE...
My red bird trees...
Vintage cuteness...
Look how sweet he is...he would never try to eat Baby Jesus.
Nope...he is just too cute and sweet for that...
Except...what's that in his mouth?
Why it's the poor baby Jesus...
Baby Godzilla makes a bee line for it every chance he gets.

If you give a holiday tour of your home...be sure to leave me a comment so I can some see...I LOVE to see how other folks decorate.

Happy Christmas time!

That is so hilarious to me about the nativity, cause the same thing happens with mine. Noah is always somewhere close, and the ark animals mingle with the donkeys & sheep. Throw in some hot wheels, and the nativity is complete!
