Our Christmas Home Decor

Merry Christmas! Come on in and watch your step over all of the electrical cords, we could very well be the Griswolds!
 I have finally gotten around to getting our house clean enough to take photos of our decorations. I must confess, that the house wasn't really this clean. I moved a lot of junk out of the way! That's life with kids right!? As you scroll through, I am sure you will realize that I stole a lot of ideas from Pinterest... but that is what it's there for right!?

 Because its totally fashionable to have a hot cocoa bar in your house! Ours is filled with Ovaltine! "Be sure to drink your....ovaltine???" - Ralphie from The Christmas Story

 Please ignore the dust, the top shelf doesn't get touched very often!

After many nights knitting and giving myself arthritis, my stockings are finally done! I could not be more pleased with how they turned out! If anyone is a knitter and would like my pattern I would be happy to share it. Stocking patterns are hard to come by. Our fireplace has seen a little trim makeover since these photos have been taken. I will post an update!

 Our little tree. Next year we are going much bigger with the tree, for now this one was already in a box in the basement.
 DIY Advent calendar inspired by Crate and Barrel. The stockings are empty because if they were filled with goodies I would have a two year old bouncing off of the walls! Maybe next year!

 Excuse the lawn mower, Keating was doing a little yard work.

Well, that is pretty much it. I love our decorations this year and I am really happy with how everything turned out.
