Deck The Halls

I have started decking the halls of our home....I love Christmas time!!! Here are a few pics for now-- nothing fancy, but it helps it feel like it is actually December!

I also decided to do a little deco in the baby's room-- I found a 6 pack of baby blue ornaments for $3!! Cant beat that!! I also made vintage looking paper Christmas trees from scrapbook paper that matched the baby's room.....(I saw the Christmas tree ideas in Martha Stewart Living)
Although, I must say this years decking had a damper on it as I realized that many artificial lights, garland, deco and trees have lead in un-safe amounts (check your Christmas deco for lead warnings and wash hand after handling those products!!!) with a little curious boy around I have had to place everything so high....needless to say the top half of our tree is all that is decorated until he grasps the concept of "looking with your eyes not your hands!"

I love your Christmas stuff. I have to ask it...there are 4 stockings, are you trying to tell me something?

RE: four stockings---No-there are no announcments. I bought four stockings before we were even thinking about ou first one!!! They were on sale at burlington for $3...I could not choose which ones and they were way to cheap to pass up!!! more decorative than functional!!

SO Cute Monica!

Where the heck do you find the time? I have none.

I have to say... I agree with Sarah, I noticed 4 stockings hanging and you said "the baby's" room.

PS-Christmas cards were AWESOME!! Your's was the only one that was handmade this year with all the bells and whistles.
